My UFO is coming together, but I have a dilemma. I have 10 more striped blocks (4 blocks make a large block and there are 3 large blocks down the center of this quilt top), 4 solid dark blue blocks, and 2 half squares of dark blue left over. This quilt top is already about 3’x6′. I’ll have to do some serious sketching to lay out the remaining squares. I know that none of the designs that were originally shown by the instructor will work for this quilt top–I realized that when I put it away unfinished all those months ago. This quilt will be unique, for sure (if I ever get it finished!).
I finished Sue Grafton’s “V is for Vengeance” last night. It’s a hardback book and I picked it up in the return bin there in the library at Roadhaven. They don’t allow hardback books because of the space required for them, so I knew I was helping by taking it home with me. When Grafton began her Alphabet Series many years ago, I read the first few letters, but gradually moved on to other mystery fiction writers. Dick Francis, Dean Koontz, Tony Hillerman, to name a few. I’ve not read a lot of Grafton’s work, and none at all recently, except the ‘V’ novel. I went to Wikipedia to see if a list of mystery writers existed, and it did! I think I’ll put the list into a text file and line through the ones whose work I’ve already read. Of course, many of the authors I read (or follow online) are authors of e-books that I’ve downloaded for free from Amazon.com. I doubt I’ll see their names in the list, but I might.
Be safe, be well, and be happy. If the opportunity presents itself, take a moment to do something kind for a fellow human being. It could be something as simple as adding a stray shopping cart to your own cart when you return the cart to the front of the store. This effort saves the cart person from having to push one more cart. Oh, and be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
