Round One and the Omega!

I finished the first round for the RR. It started out as something different, that I decided I hated and then ended up like this which I really like. I enjoyed finding the different fabrics used to make the stripes! The picture makes the fabrics look as if they don't match well, but I assure you that they do! They say a picture is worth a thousand words... they don't tell you how many of those "words" are inaccurate. LOL!

I just completed Gentry's ABC quilt! Well, technically I still have some threads to trim off and I want to launder it before wrapping it up. I just finished the binding a few minutes ago and I'm almost too happy to sleep! I'll probably wait to take a picture until his birthday on Monday.

And now tomorrow, I finally get to take the time to do my OC round! Great theme, Kim! I have it all planned out, the fabrics picked out, everything! Just needed to finish Gentry's and the other RR first. I'll be sure to take a picture of it as soon as it is done!

School has been going well... still adjusting to the new routine. But I guess I'm doing okay as my son said he never wants to have another teacher ever, and Hailey claims to feel sorry for the children in her old school that don't have mommies willing to homeschool. What great praise! Now if only I can stop being so tired. LOL!

Jane, by the way, I did finally finish "The Saddlemaker's Wife." I was actually a little disappointed. I felt depressed through most of the story and I didn't connect quite as well as I have with the Benni Harper characters. I really do hope that I'm the only one that feels that way as I do want her book to do extremely well. Now, I'm back to one of my other series... the Needlecraft Mysteries by Monica Ferris. I'm a bit behind and just started reading, "Embroidered Truths." Does anyone else out there enjoy this series?

I felt the same way... the cover is a turn off to some too, one lady said, "Oh, no, I don't read westerns." and wouldn't try the book at all.

I hope her next book is back to Benni Harper too. :)

Glad school is going well!

WTG, on the finishes!

I've just started reading the Monica Ferris mysteries. I found a book with the first three, and I'm almost finished with Framed in Lace. They're great reads.

Have you read books by Emilie Richards - great series The Wedding Ring, Endless Chain and the newest is Lover's Knot (I've only read the first two)

I've read all the needlework mysteries - I love them! Can hardly wait for the next one.
