I haven’t had time…I haven’t even had time to read with all that has been going on here. But tonight? It sounds like something I want to do.
Bountiful Creek: a legendary love story by Steven B. Weissman, is free in the Kindle store, courtesy of publisher Studio One.
Book Description:I just downloaded it and it was still free for me, but check before you click purchase to be sure it still is for you.
In the spring of 1861, just prior to the onset of the Civil War, Martha Somerville finds her life rapidly changing along with the world around her.
Determined to find a way to build a life with her love, Wilby, Martha focuses her energies on acquiring enough money to buy a plot of land to turn into a small farm. Her obsession takes her far from quiet Bountiful Creek, Virginia, deep into Union territory in Ohio.
When war breaks out, she immediately sets her course for home before Wilby leaves to join the Confederate Army; but a wealthy suitor, a gravely ill companion, and a thief challenge her efforts to reach him in time. Yet even if she can successfully overcome her obstacles, her life dangerously parallels an ill-fated legend that threatens to keep her and the man she loves apart forever.
The house is quiet –the hubster has gone to his tennis match, Jeff is still at work – and I’ve sewn all I can sew today. I’m curling up with Emmy Lou, putting my feet up and submersing myself into some reading for a while!
There won’t be Quilt-Cam tonight – but I’m shooting for tomorrow night at 9pm Eastern.
Emmy Lou on today’s project!
She didn’t quite want me to move it to put that last border on!
And while we are talking about projects…do you remember the one rule I made myself?
FULL TO THE BRIM!
This is a drawer from one of my 3 drawer wheelie carts that stores pre-cut squares. This box is completely FULL of 2.5” squares. The rule is – if you can’t shut the box/bin/drawer/tote it is time to MAKE A QUILT! I know there is a lot of things I can do with a box of 2.5” squares ---but I’d like to hear what YOU would do if this box was yours. I’ve done 4 patches. I’ve done 9 patches. I’ve done 16 patches….help me out here – what would YOU be sewing this box of squares into?
Have a great evening everyone!
