August 22nd, 2009 - Not Much Going On….

 ……here in my sewing room. I had to go back to work after being off for a month and I can’t seem to get motivated to do anything except read. I read My Sisters Keeper and Blindman’s Bluff. I’m currently reading The Hour I First Believed. I started working out and riding the exercise bike and decided that I should read while riding. But I have started reading all the time. I used to read about 3 books a week but that was before quilting. I have to find a happy medium with quilting and reading. Maybe.

On the quilting front, I did manage to piece 2 backs together. This will look good on my stash report tomorrow. After going on that shop hop, my buying has really overtaken my using. Maybe I’ll sew something today. Then again maybe not. I’m supposed to go and can some tomatoes at my SIL’s. Yesterday we made 2 batches of salsa and last weekend there was some blueberry jam. Next we want to do peaches. Yummy!

Hey, did you know that Heather at Trends and Traditions is having a giveaway? You should check her site out. Great books and patterns. I have made a few of them and I really like them. Her instructions are great and the pictures are truly inspiring.

Have a great day.

    Hi, Mary-Kay.
    I listen to books on tapes and CDs while I quilt AND ride my exercise bike. Just a thought.
    Quilting and ‘listening’ in Arkansas.

    I usually listen to my IPOD but podcasts of books would be great.

    I’m able to listen to about 3 to 5 books a week (I carry one of my two little boom boxes from room to room as I clean the kitchen, quilt, do the canning, etc.), depending on the length and I always have a book CD in the car. I’d go nuts driving the hour to and the hour back from town without my book…LOL. I’m enjoying your blog. Just found it after you gave your stash busting report.
