I won the quilt I was bidding on! The title is Autumn Came Too Soon, and the quilter is Lisa Dobson. Artist Statement: My mother-in law suffered from early onset Alzheimer’s. Fall and then winter came too soon in her life.
Isn't it lovely? I'm thrilled to add it to my collection. Did you guess right, Michele?
I love Penny Beren's stitchery (Tanglewood Threads).
More guerrilla art! I found these on Annette's blog, Thread Addict. Too funny!
Annette has more pics on this post.
An interesting article about Daylight Savings Time.
All Woman and Springtime by Brandon W. Jones. It's an Advanced Reader's Copy from Algonquin, and so far, is very good. Book description: "This spellbinding debut, reminiscent of Memoirs of a Geisha, depicts—with chilling accuracy—life behind North Korea’s iron curtain." I know it is going to get very tense, but the characters are well drawn, and the insight into life in North Korea is compelling.
I'm still enjoying Moonwalking with Einstein, but the books of essays (all three of them) are being seriously neglected.
The Triad is acting unusually crazy! They sound like elephants clumping through the house at top speed with occasional "meows" and odd screeching. Edgar must be bored and torturing his sisters.
