Tell me what books your children enjoyed hearing you read/or they read?..so I can pass on the same joy to children, reading your books to them in the school library, come Fall.

If you could write a book (or if you have) what would it be (genre) and why??I'm curious because I've always thought it would be fun to write a book.  :-)Continue

Sounds very colorful.  I love the autumn colors and fabric with fall leaves.  I spent the day pulling weeds-10 yard bags full.  Thurs and Fri I painted the shed and windows.  I would have loved to finish my grandson's quilt instead but it had to be done before winter.  We had three beautiful fall days so I enjoyed being outside.

I've been listening to Medieval mysteries that I got from library.  Interesting but not a must read.  Like watching Masterpiece theater only audio.  What a hard life people lived in the Middle Ages.

A lot!..I bought some Quilt Magazine at the Library Bookstore.,which I am donating back..not my style..too modern!
I bought just a yard of beautiful Fall Leaves yardage...and I am having so much fun..cutting it up and sewing up this like a cover for my Kitchenaid Mixer, napkins to put bouquets of Fall Flowers on..etc!..it is easy, since my Senior Nest has a combo..white kitchen and living room..complete with a huge Fall wreath I made over the sink...I even put a Harvest Angel in the middle of the wreath!..Fun!!
....I picked up 5 kits this morning to make Quilts for Kids..all boy patterns ..sweet!
So, sewing in this tiny kitchen is at least colorful!
.....happy reading and sewing!..the best of both worlds!

I also donate the used books back to the library sale.  I wonder how many of the books just keep getting passed around.

On the 1st weekend of Oct,  there will be a book sale by a club here and thousands of books will be on sale.  I look forward to getting my books there especially quilting and non-fiction and then I donate some of them back to the club after I am done with it.

Finally, I finished reading A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick. 

Amanda,  I have not read Nancy Drew and Fannie Flagg.  I have seen the movie ,Fried Green Tomatoes.

Kathy...enjoy your quilt friend!!!   and the quilt books!!

I graduated from nancy drew to Agatha Christie...have read every one of hers....

the midwife one I am reading now is about the kids in the workhouse and their lives....hard to believe it was what we call modern times....the first one I listened to was when she first started and rode her bicycle to see her patients.  both are excellent reads/audios...ask your library to get them or interlibrary loan them.

I too read the Bobbsey Twins & Nancy Drew. I did not have the whole set of Nancy Drew, but I still have the ones I did have. I read a lot from the library. Amanda, I think there was a Nancy Drew quilt at our local quilt store's quilt show last year. I remember how excited my daughter got when she saw it, lol.

Kathy, I hope your new quilting friend have fun times together!

Oh..I will have to see if they might have Call the Midwife on audio at the library. Probably not, since they don't have the books. But I can always hope!

Comment by handstitcher/IL on Wednesday

How nice that you found another quilter, Kathy! Glad you were able to go back and get the rest of the books.

I loved Nancy Drew, Amanda! First I read the Bobbsey Twins books and then graduated to Nancy Drew. My brother read the Hardy Boys. Someone at my church had donated nearly the entire Nancy Drew series to the church library (not sure how Nancy Drew mysteries really fit in there....) so I had a steady supply. I was probably the only child who ever used the church library!

Comment by Ellen Pearce on Wednesday

Jill I have the Midwives you are listening to is in my queue.

Kathy Hope the quilter you met will join you.  You will probably have a quilt group and a book group before long.
