Looks like a new book out! I read The Shadow of the Wind a couple years ago. It was an interesting novel --- I'm hoping this one will be, too.
Looking forward to going back to The Cemetary of Forgotten Books

Matthew Pearl: The Last Dickens

For audio book lovers --- don't miss this one!!!

The Last Dickens

I heard about it & checked it out at the public library

So far, I'm very hooked!!! Not sure if it is the audio format - the story telling -- or the story, but it is one of the DONT MISS audios

The Pink Artists are getting together for their second project.

With left over 2" x 2" squares, a wall art hanging is being created. It will be called Block Party '09

It will be sold with donations going to Susan G. Komen For the Cure

In addtion to the wall hanging (quilt), there will be works of art created by the Pink Artists

Drawing details coming soon!

For additional information .... visit Monica Magness' blog Girl Gone Thread Wild

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS? The Summer '09 issue of Art Quilting Studio has a great article on The Pink Artists

Did you notice they made mention of Pat Winter's art quilt square ?

I looked at the Slide Show on Monica's post, and I spotted my 'left over' square

My square is in the upper right corner of this block. So kewl to be involved in this worthy cause
