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

Anyone catch the season opener of Call the Midwife last night? Looks like a great new season. I've missed it...

LOL, Vilma!

Janet,  OMG,  I am not "the cause"  of Nicholas Sparks' divorce.  I meet him once years ago.  I swear!!!!  LOL

Comment by Janet/MO on Friday

That clock is really neat Sandy.  My husband & I are both avid readers so something like that would fit in to our house very nicely.

I read online a while back that Nicholas Sparks & his wife are getting divorced after being married over 20 years.  I found that to be incredibly sad as he just seems to be so in touch with women.  His books are definitely tearjerkers, but I sure do love them. 

I am currently reading "Burn" by James Patterson.  It is the latest in the Michael Bennett series.  He is a NYC police detective who is the single father of 10 adopted children because his wife died from ovarian cancer.  Good books although a bit violent at times.

Clever clock!  We have new babies at church.  I'm putting borders on one for a baby boy due in June then I will start one for a little boy born last month.  At that point, I need to do some quilting and finishing.  

I'm reading a John Piper book, Future Grace.  My DDIL are reading it together.  It's written to read one chapter a day.  I read it for the first time when I was her age.  I'm also reading Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis.

I don't think most autographs are worth that much unless the person is well known. Oh, well! Your Nicholas Sparks would be worth more than the lesser know Anita Shackelford, but it also depends on how rare the autograph is and how desirable to others.

If anyone is near the Milwaukee area, I saw that Marie Bostwick is going to be at the WI Quilt Museum in Cedarburg on 4/11 showcasing her new book and doing a fundraiser for the museum. I visited the museum last summer and enjoyed it.

Love the clock, Sandy! I bet most of us have read a few of those books.

Hand,  funny about your autographed quilt books.  I had Anita Schackleford signed one of my books when she was in my guild.  Does that increased the value of her book?

Comment by Sandy Todd on Friday

Hello friends!  It's been a while since I've peeked in here.  Sounds as if ya'll have been busy stitching and reading as I have been.  With two babies coming into our family in April and May, I've been sewing "all things baby" in both blue and pink.

Right now I'm reading Isabella Alan's 2nd book in her Amish Quilt Shop series Murder, Simply Stitched.  It's a good one!

I thought I'd share this unique wall clock with you.  I love it!  If you would like to check out how it was made, you can go here...http://imgur.com/a/KUyfg

Have a beautiful weekend!

DD ended up at Michigan Tech University. She loved the class lecture at Univ. of Chicago, but didn't like the general attitude on campus. She's very down to earth and non-competitive, despite being a great scholar. She loves where she's at and is very involved in a variety of activities in addition to doing research. It's been a great fit for her.

Funny about the autographed books, Vilma. I realized yesterday that I have autographed books from both Elly Sienkiewicz and Anita Shackelford. Of course, I bought both used, so neither is inscribed to me!

Comment by Vilma/AR on Thursday

DD2 and I went to a lecture by Nicholas Sparks and had our books signed.  WE both like Nicholas Sparks.  DH always said that there is always someone  killed in his book.
