I had thought of an option of using Ravelry and setting up a forum for us there, but if people prefer this option, that's OK with me.

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

I know that this group has been quite pretty much all year, but I wanted to pop on and say that I hope you all are having a good holiday season and that you have time to enjoy some old favorite books and maybe find some great new ones, too. I know that I have found some of my most loved stories through many of your recommendations, so if you want to continue this group I would be happy to join in.

I have really been enjoying the No. 1 Ladies Detective novels lately by Alexander McCall Smith. I read the first three many years ago and now I have found the others through my library.  I have discovered and read all the books by Ruth Ware, they are pretty good. Many others, too.

Happy Reading

I'll have to keep that in mind, Carol. Thanks for the tip!

Just finished Jodi Picoult's Small Great Things.  I've been disappointed with Jodi's last couple novels but this one is a winner!!!!

Just finished "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie" by Alan Bradley. It's a mystery set in 1950 in England. The protagonist is an 11 year girl. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but trusted the friend who gave it to me. I was hooked from the first page! And even better, it's the first in a series, so I have more to look forward to.

Just picked up Elizabeth's Peters final Amelia Peabody book, The Painted Queen, from library. Also, the latest Aurora Teagarden mystery by Charlaine Harris. Won't get much done this week between reading and work!

Janet, just started The Sound of Glass a day or two ago.  Haven't had much time to read so I'm less than 100 pages in but enjoying it!  What a coincidence!

Comment by Janet/MO on September 19, 2017 at 1:20pm

I just reading The Sound of Glass by Karen White.  It had a really different kind of twist to the plot, but I enjoyed it.
