I just finished Born to Rule: Five Reigning Consorts, Granddaughters of Queen Victoria by Julia P. Gelardi last night and started The Burning Wire by Jeffery Deaver on the iPad.
I’m in the middle of The Sheen on the Silk by Anne Perry on the Kindle (poolside reading).
And I’m listening to my first ever audiobook while I’m knitting – Persuasion by Jane Austen.
Seems like quilting is not the only hobby for multitasking. Is it any wonder I’m not making much progress on my AppleCore?
What are you reading right now?
Someone asked about Big Canoe in a comment — Big Canoe is a resort type community in the North Georgia mountains, just an hour from where we lived in Marietta. The move to Minneapolis with Keith’s company 3+ years ago had been completely unexpected and we had bought this condo just a year before.
While we’ve had it for sale, the market for vacation homes these days hasn’t been good so Chris keeps an eye on it for us and we visited last summer and again this year. When I’m here I think we should come more often but there always seem to be so many other places to visit.
A walk to the end of the street gave me an opportunity to snap a couple photos of one of my favorite spots.
I’m not doing much quilting other than a few seams here and there on the AppleCore but Mom’s been working on her two 30’s quilts that we cut out on my last visit. She told me today that she’s finishing up the binding on the Tumbler quilt but I don’t have a photo of that one yet.
Here’s her version of my Lattice Quilt that I was in the process of assembling before my trip. Instructions are on my MaryQuilts.com site
