The Blue Castle
by L. M. Montgomery
(who also wrote Anne of Green Gables)

thx to my bookworm friends
for telling me about the similarities in The Blue Castle
and The Ladies of Misalonghi

I went back to the public library
and picked up The Blue Castle

From the book summaries - they do seem similar.

I had been looking for this Art Bin
since seeing it on (somebody's) a blog.

Found one at JoAnn's Fabrics (+ used a coupon.)
near the crochet hooks

My 'stuff' is a perfect fit
: )

The Ladies of Missalonghi

I checked this book out of the public library
after reading about it in the most recent issue of
PieceWork Magazine.

It is The Ladies of Missalonghi
by Colleen McCullough.

Enjoyable read so far.

What Day is it?

Sewing Machine Day!

According to Holiday Insights:

When : June 13th and September 10th

Sewing Machine Day celebrates a very important invention ----- the sewing machine. The first sewing machines were made in France in the 1830s.
It wasn't until 1846, that they were patented in the U.S.
What a great invention.
Prior to it's creation, clothes items were sewn together by hand...stitch by stitch.
