Friday Books and a Bit of Quilty News
This week I finally finished Even Silence Has an End: My Six Years of Captivity in the Colombian Jungle by Ingrid Betancourt. It took me over 3 weeks to get through this book. It was a hard, unhappy topic and seemed endless in more ways than one. I liked it, but didn't like it. I found it hard to rate this book and ended up giving it 3 stars. Please see my Goodreads shelf, click on Even Silence Has an End, to read my full review.
In quilty news, yesterday I sent off my orange quilt to Emily for Happy Chemo, satisfying part of my Hands 2 Help Challenge promise. I am working on a quilt for Quilts Beyond Borders which will meet their size requirements. Coincidentally, it is made of the extras and leftovers of this orangey fabrics.
I also dropped off a quilt that will hang in a one-week quilt show, first ever for this venue. I think it's a judged show, though I didn't know that when I registered my quilt. I don't make my quilts to be judged, so we'll see what they have to say about my ugly machine quilting and my hastily attached-by-machine binding.
