I love this picture of upside down Pokey. For one thing my baby is gorgeous and for another you can see my hand quilting on the Margarita Quilt. I'm doing straight-ish lines so that I end up with Xs across every patch (which are each roughly one inch). As usual, I'm over quilting, but I just love how it looks.
I had my uptake scan yesterday (though I may have to go redo it, bleah) and can now eat whatever I want again. Woohoo! How I've missed my English Breakfast Tea with milk.
A bit of news for you. Bonnie is doing so fantastically well with her book and has contracts for two more. It's amazing and I'm so proud of her. Meanwhile, I'm going to be working on the free-pieced letters book by myself. So there's that.
Have to admit I've been enjoying taking a break from working on the book and quilts for it and instead quilting Margarita. I want it on my wall, gosh darn it. Nose will be back to the grindstone soon enough.
More quilty stuff... Whee, Sharon got her copy of Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran's new book. Read more here.
Love Bebe's new quilt top with the Liberated Houses and Stars.
Finished watching Lost Season 3. Love that time trip into the future - most excellent. And have to say I'm quite happy they killed off a certain character who annoyed the heck out of me. Anyway, funny to realize that this is another show with non-linear time, kinda like the time loops I was talking about in my last post (but completely different).
How could I have forgotten the Mummy's Hand episode of Buffy from my list of time loops? yes, one of my favorite episodes. I always loved the Geek Troika as villains.
I have a book recommendation for you. The Magicians and Mrs Quent by Galen Beckett. It essentially boils down Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters in a world with magic. I loved loved the first part of the book, that really did have Jane Austen down pat. Seriously loved it. Unfortunately the second half turns into Jane Eyre which I don't care for much at all. Still, it's a fun book. Go here to learn more and read an excerpt.
Now I just want my library to get Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. The cover of the book alone is enough to make me want to read it.
