There has been little progress in the sewing room this summer as my sewing room doubles as an extra bedroom when needed and it has been needed. That's O.K. plenty of time for sewing when the weather gets cool. I always get a burst of creativity in September, it must have something to do with realization that the holiday season is just around the corner.
With some off time I have been reading more and just finished reading The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier. The story takes place in northern Ohio during the time of the Underground Railroad. Although I was not familiar with the area in the book, I did spent my childhood in Northern Ohio and can visualize the surroundings. If you like historical fiction you might enjoy this adventure of a young Quaker girl from England trying to find her place in America.
I started on The Union Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini last night and Chiaverini has a soon to be released sampler quilt book to supplement the novel. Anyone up for hosting a quilt along?
What's on your reading list this summer?
Enjoy all the pieces of your life,
