I found a crusty (the name I've given to work in the style of Susan Shie's Lucky School of Quilting) while I was sorting through boxes that have been in storage. I completely forgot I'd made this one. It wasn't successful - not enough contrast. I love the moon though - I'm tempted to cut this thing apart and just do a section of the moon. Then I could salvage all the bugle beads and buttons and be done with it.
Book Recommendation: Tamara Siler Jones' latest novel Valley of the Soul. Actually I highly recommend all three of her books, but this is the best one yet. They're mystery novels set in a sword and sorcery mileu, using forensic science to solve crime. I'm terrible at describing books because I never want to give anything away. Here's an excerpt from her first Dubric novel Ghosts in the Snow. If you like fantasy novels and CSI you can't go wrong. Plus the author is a quilter and you've got to love that.
Movie Recommendation: Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain aka Amelie. I love this movie and had to rewatch it after visiting Monmartre, esp since Will made a point of taking me to the cafe where the movie filmed. Not that there would be any doubt about that - big huge pictures of Audrey Tautou up on the walls. I even got my husband to watch it with me by convincing him he could work on his French language skills. If you haven't seen the movie it is a lovely and sweet romantic comedy with a bit of a dark side.
