Yesterday’s mail brought 2 tops from Marianne ( a member of HeartStrings) for me to finish for Alycia’s Quilts of Valor project. Have you checked her progress toward 400 quilts for 2009 lately?

She’s up to 136 with 90 of them quilted. She receives both tops and finished quilts and shows them all on her blog. You should really take a look!

I also received more books from Cecile. She’s a reader of my blog who contacted me a while back and offered to send some books for me to read. Since then she’s shared books and new authors with me all of which I’ve really enjoyed.

A few of my favorites have been:

Three Pines Mysteries (Series) by Louise Penney

The Cece Caruso Mysteries by Susan Kandel

The Maise Dobbs Mysteries by Jacqueline Winspear

  1. I always like to find new mystery writers and love recommendations from others. Thanks! Here are a couple new authors I’ve read lately.Nevada Barr – her main character is a national park ranger. The writing is OK – nothing marvelous – but what you learn about obscure national parks while you read each story is fascinating.Harland Coben – Great writing and interesting characters. Kept me on the edge of my seat. I’m currently reading the second one of his and looking forward to reading more.
