This and That

Remember these?

I cut more pieces when I was back in Michigan. But I didn’t count very well. Ugh. Oh, well. I made a couple more and will piece one here and there until I’m out of parts.

We had a lovely weekend with family, including a birthday party for a Big L. I can’t believe he is seven already.

I also wanted to share this comment left by Wanda at Exuberant Color regarding die cutting on cross grain vs. lengthwise grain.

And if you’ve never visited Wanda’s blog, you are in for a treat. It’s the one I read with my coffee every morning.

Lastly, I wanted to share these books with you.

Historical novels in diary form? I’m in! I read these books for the first time not long after my first trip to Arizona. Since then I’ve read them at least three times, maybe four. They tell the story of a young woman who comes to Arizona Territory and settles here. I look around at the wilderness here and know that Sarah was made of sterner stuff than I am! I finally ordered my own copies.

Have a great day!

  1. I’ve read These is My Words and Sarah’s Quilt; I didn’t realize there was a third. I’ll have to read them again, along with the third one. They were good! I follow Wanda’s blog, too. Such a talented lady! Glad you were able to celebrate Big L’s birthday with him!

    Those books sound so good! Have you ever read Karen Osborn’s book Between Earth and Sky? It is a story in letter form about a young woman who settles in New Mexico in 1867. The letters are between her and her sister back in Virginia. The sister and her husband had promised to move to New Mexico, too, but the letters reveal why they stay home and at the same time how much the New Mexico sister is loving her new home and the adventure of a new place and new people. My favorite book of all time.
