|5 new quilts to work on|
I have also been working on some wall hangings and mug rugs.
Here's a couple of photos of my last quilt project. This quilt along with the kits (once they are finished) will be donated to a children's charity. I am finally making a dent in my stash!

I have been busy visiting entries in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I have seen some gorgeous quilts. I think I have seen about a third of the entries. So many quilts, so little time. On 24 May, Amy will open her link for voting, so I need to start taking notes of the ones I like the best.
The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
Gosh! I'm a little lost for words. *Wondrous*Enchanting*Mystical*Magical....I found myself craving cakes and I'm not that big on cakes, but I could almost smell the sugar in the air...my mouth watering...mmmm. Sarah's stories always ignite my imagination and she never fails to entertain me right to the end. Her books are like a comfort food....so relaxing and she always leaves me begging for more!
17 year old Emily comes to live with her grandfather in a small southern town in North Carolina filled with unusual characters and secrets after the death of her mother. Emily's mother never spoke of her childhood home or about her own father. Emily sets out to learn about her mother's past and what the charming people of Mullaby are hiding. All I can say is once you start reading this one, you will not want to leave..I mean stop reading it!
Sarah Addison Allen has a new book coming out this year called "Lost Lake" and I haven't read "The Sugar Queen" yet. I'm saving it for later.
“Books can be possessive, can’t they? You’re walking around in a bookstore and a certain one will jump out at you, like it had moved there on its own, just to get your attention. Sometimes what’s inside will change your life, but sometimes you don’t even have to read it. Sometimes it’s a comfort just to have a book around.”
~Sarah Addison Allen, The Sugar Queen
