I had a hard time deciding what I should choose to finish this month--unfortunately I have lots of options!
|Since I will be starting a new Bonnie Hunter top on Wednesday, I thought this may be a good month to finish Easy Street. I found that I had already made the binding (yay!) and had some backing fabrics chosen (but not sewn together--boo!). I think I can get away with an edge to edge design, so it should be a pretty simple finish.|
I'm feeling a bit of trepidation on starting a new Bonnie Hunter project. It seems like most times I have an issue like I did HERE and HERE--lol!
|I also seem to have another group of UFO's--or maybe ULO's (unlistened objects). I've had a bunch of Audible books on my phone that I had purchased years ago. I've been trying to listen to them during my daily walks rather than finding something new. I really enjoyed The Snowman. The entire time I was listening, I was thinking how the story would make a great movie. I've just learned it is going to be a movie, released in October. This isn't the first Harry Hole mystery, and there were a few personal threads that probably overlap from the other HH books, but I don't think you need to have read the other books to enjoy this one. Now I want to read the rest of Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole books! Anyway, if you liked the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books, I think you would enjoy this one-it has that kind of feel.|
Now I'm on to State of Wonder. It starts out in Minnesota but quickly shifts to Brazil where it's hot, hot, hot. Maybe not the best thing to be listening to when you are walking in humid summer heat--unlike The Snowman, set in Norway during the winter. I'm not too far into the book yet, but there are some very interesting characters and I'm intrigued.
You've probably read these books long ago, but if not, this was my two cents!
|On the bus trip, I finished hand piecing the half stars that go along the vertical edges of my Texas Star quilt.|
|And I only have this one seam left to finish the top--yee-haw!!|
If I knew how to do the Texas Two Step, I would be doing it--so excited to see this so close to the end! I think my Slow Stitching today will see this one done!
