The World According to Maiden Fair

Where Has the time gone.

It has been a beautiful summer and an even lovelier  Autumn – I have enjoyed the long days and sunshine – for the first time in years I have spent time out in it taking pictures for my 365 Project.  ShyShy and I also spent some time out Letterboxing.  We haven’t been able to do much for several years so it was a wonderful summer and fall.  I have also been able to work on my quilting again and set about to complete as many UFO’s as possible – basically so I could in all good conscience start on some new ones!!  LOL  I have managed to complete a few.

       This one is called a prayer quilt.  I found the original panel on a Quilt Shoppe Hop and it sat for nearly 2 years until I decided to get busy this summer and finish it.  All the other fabric was from my stash.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted.  I gave it as a gift to a dear friend who was moving away.

I’m including my June book list this time – hopefully I will be able to post again soon and show you more quilts I have finished this summer and more of the books I’ve read.

June 2012 Book List
The Teaberry Strangler by Laura Child
The Saddlemaker’s Wife by Earlene Fowler
After Glow by Jayne Castle
Monster in Miniature by Margaret Grace
A River in the Sky by Elizabeth Peters
Buttons and Bones by Monica Ferris
Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof by Blaize Clemment
Midnight Crystal by Jayne Castle

I don’t think there are any new authors on the list.  I did read that Earlene Fowler is taking a break from writing and will not be continuing her series on Bennie Harper – one of my favorite series – so Spider’s Web will be the last book in the series.  There is a sequal to the Saddlemaker’s wife which I have, but have not yet read.  I also had no 50 page rule books on this list.

Hope you all have a great day.

    I see some books on that list that I need to find at the library! Drat those 3 week limits! I love your prayer quilt. What a thoughtful gift that was. Thanks for sharing the way you put it together.
