The finished quilt

Yes after two months of barely hand quilting I finally finished the quilt from the quilt along that finished in June. I had a hard time with the hand quilting but only because sticking with that kind of task for more than an hour at a time just doesn't work for me. But I've finally finished it. I also made a lot of mistakes. But in doing so I've learned things that you shouldn't do and things that you should definitely do. Like over baste. Well without further ado here it is.

Short on time

Unfortunately having 5 year old twins and a 16 year old in the house makes doing anything for long periods next to impossible. So I'll have to wait til tomorrow to update the new recipes that I've tried over the past month. Right now I have to go be the mean viscous mom and put three kids in time out.

But I'll leave you with a few of my favorite pics from the past month.

Bag log of book reviews

That' another thing I managed to get done for June is a few books completed. I'll probably accomplish this goal easily enough.

First up, The Search by Nora Roberts. I'm not a romance type reader but I did find this book to be okay. It was quite predictable in the ending but the character interactions made the read worth it. It wasn't a book that I had to take with me so that I could devour it.

Ahhhh my new favorite series and I'm anxiously awaiting #4 to come in at the library. The Sookie Stackhouse series. I've read the first three and I'll just make one post about all of them instead of individually. Let me start off by saying that if you don't like supernatural reads these are not for you. Also if a bit of sex bothers you stay away from these as well. Now that being said...I love these books. The main character is down to earth and with the exception of her "gift" she's kinda like the girl next door. But she does seem to land herself in hot water. My favorite so far is Club Dead.

Update for the non-scrappy projects

I honestly don't foresee getting 38 non-scrappy projects done. I've only completed 6 so far and have 4 in the works and three in my head to do.

Anyway here's the one I've gotten completed since the last post. It's my multi color dish cloth.
