The World According to Maiden Fair

June is here

I can’t believe what has gone on around here since the last time I wrote in this blog – or should I say was able to write in this blog.  Just a couple of days after my last post, I tripped over a crate of fabric in my sewing room and fell.  Ended up landing on my knee that I had replaced a year and a half ago, spraining both wrists and breaking my right elbow.  Needless to say I have done no quilting, cleaning, cooking, baking, driving, walking on my own, writing, or much of anything else.  I even have to go to the hairdresser to get my hair washed – and that will continue for a few more weeks.  Even though I can now use my arm, my wrists are still very sore and weak and I can’t do that little chore.  I have spent a lot of time reading.  It is about the only thing I have been able to do and even that has been limited to small paperbacks as I can’t lift the hardbound books.  Believe me when I tell you – do not jump up to answer to door or the phone or anything else before checking your footing or the space around your feet as you really don’t want to fall and end up the the emergency room at any time of the year.

At any rate my May reading list for 2011 is as follows:

  • Divine Justice by David Baldacci
  • An Unlikely Countess by Jo Beverley
  • The Lovers Knot by Claire O’Donohue
  • Flamingo Fatale by Jimmie Ruth Evens
  • A Hoe Lot of Trouble by Heather Webber
  • Scandalous by Karen Robards
  • Tragic Magic by Laura Childs
  • The Twenty-first Wish by Debbie Macomber
  • Coming Unraveled by Susan Mallery
  • Return to Summer Island by Christina Skye
  • Who Killed What’s-her-name by Elizabeth Daniels Squire
  • Death of an Outsider by MC Beaton
  • The Quick and the Thread by Amanda Lee

David Baldacci is of course one of my all time favorites as is Jo Beverley.  Laura Childs and her Scrapbooking Mysteries and Christina Skye and Debbie Macomber and their romances are also great favorites.  New to me this month was Claire O’Donohue and her Someday Quilts Mystery Series – I enjoyed the first book and have the second one on order.  Also new was Jimmie Ruth Evens with Flamingo Fatale – not sure about this series so I haven’t ordered the next book.  Also new this month is Amanda Lee with the Quick and the Thread  which was an enjoyable read and I will probably go back for an encore with her.  Elizabeth Daniels Squire is an author I have read before I just didn’t read all the books and I didn’t read them in order – so I’m doing it right this time through.  And Karen Robards is always a great read no matter what venue she chooses to write.

As I haven’t been doing much in the way of crafts or photography this month I don’t have much in the way of pictures to show you – hopefully by the next time I will have more to share.  Have a great day and don’t get wet or blown away.
