Change of pace.......

You can only unpack boxes for so long until you get totally fed up of it..........I'm at that point.  So as I am going to a baby shower on the 13th, I decided to see if I can get a baby quilt put together before then.  We don't know what the sex of the baby will be so I am hoping this is neutral enough to do either sex.  It is to trim up and I need to buy I am thinking chocolate brown material for a border and backing.
 The main colours are brown, orange, yellow, and green.
As many of you know I enjoy reading, so have decided to join a book club on the subdivision.  The first meeting is on Monday July 14th, so I have ordered and will have to read this book before then.  It's doable, due to there being nothing on the tv except repeats!!!
You can read more about it here

Here is our list of books for the next year:

 July 14 The Chalk Girl - Carol O'Connell 
Aug  11  A Complicated Kindness - Miriam Toews
Sept  8.  No Time to say Goodbye - Linwood Barclay 
Oct  14  The Book Thief - Markus Zusak 
Nov  10  The Storied Life of A.J. Firky - Gabrielle Zevin 
Dec  8   Wild From Lost to Found on the Pacific coast - Cheryl Strayed
Jan  12  Snow Flower and the Secret Fan - Lisa See
Feb   9  The Invention of Wings - Sue Monk Kidd
Mar.  9  No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency - Alexander McCaul Smith

There seems to be a wide range of genre of books, so should be interesting.  Also I have never read any of these books, so that in itself is a positive thing.

The baby quilt is gorgeous - perfect colours for either a girl or a boy. Enjoy your book club. You will love "The Book Thief", it is an amazing novel. Did you know that Markus Zusak is an Aussie? Do go to see the film, too, if you can - it is wonderful and Geoffrey Rush (another Aussie) is fantastic in it.

That will make a darling baby quilt...I need to get busy and make one or two to have ahead.

Sounds like a wide range of books--hope you enjoy them.
