It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
I had a good week with lots of quilting and some reading! I have been learning to free motion quilt where the control is in my hands and foot rather than the sewing machine, its all about co-ordination and believe me is harder than driving. However as I learn I have been working on actual blocks rather than practice blocks so that I have a quilt at the end of it. Using up scraps I have from other quilts.
Quilt as You Go means I can quilt small areas but then they have to be linked which I am doing now.
Two blocks linked.
And three rows of blocks linked, the rows still have to be linked, but first I have four more rows to link. Thanks to Leah Day for her excellent teaching. I enjoy the challenge.
And summer finally showed a little of itself for a couple of days which was rather good!!
What I read/finished last week:
I finished listening to The Chocolate Thief. It was a light fun listen set in Paris and involved lots of mouth watering chocolate. While I enjoyed it I won't continue with the series.
From the TBR shelf I read and liked...
Contemporary women's fiction that involved a new start, a serious health issue and a side dish of quilting. Enjoyed it. #1 in series and would go on for sure at some point to read the next one.
From the Review shelf
Well if you've read this one set in WW11 you'll know what a roller coaster this one was. Review pending.
What I am reading at present:
From the TBR shelf one that has been there for quite some years. Woman betrayed by her husband as well as stealing money and putting the blame on his partner. Husband dead, partner out of prison and sure the ex wife has the money! Enjoying it, early days.
About to start listening to
The Shadow Sister. Will be very long so will be listening into next month I suspect. #3 in a series. The narrator has been changed so am hoping, The first one was meh in terms of narration so I read the second one.
Been looking forward to this one for awhile. Part of a favourite series that has me captured. For review.
And then it will be...
For review as well and anything I have read by her I have enjoyed. So promising reading week coming up!
