Hello Everyone,

Like many of you, I love to read!  I don't use an e-reader though.  I have toyed with getting one, most likely (because I am a MacoPhile), but I just can't seem to bring myself to do it as I love the feel of being able to turn a page in a book!

All these books are on my to read list this year.

Currently I am reading Steve Jobs' biography, the big book near the bottom.  I am about halfway through it and am finding it really fascinating.  However, reading does take me longer than probably your average person as I read when I go to bed and it takes me all of 20 minutes for me to start dozing off.  Then that is it for the night.  If I am lucky I finish about a chapter.

Does this happen to any of you?  I just wish I had more time to read.

You will notice just under Steve Jobs' book is a magazine.

It is Quilt Almanac, just into the shop.  It is a yearly publication put out by the editors of Quilt Magazine.  Lots of great quilty projects inside for inspiration.  But I wanted to draw your attention to one in particular....

My good friend Victoria of Bumble Beans has been published!! Her gorgeous quilt Festive Cheers is highlighted.

Isn't it fantastic?  If you haven't seen the magazine and you want a copy you can find it here in my shop.

Another book that is just fabulous is ...

Lone Star III.  It is the third installment in this series of books.  I mean just look at the cover... WOW!  I was able to see some of these quilts up close and personal in Houston this fall.  They were fabulous.  If you would like a great historical chronology of quilts, this is a great one!  You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.

What is on your reading list?

By the way...

Just thought you might like to see that the boys are getting along!! Pavi doesn't seem to mind that Watson lays on him and they enjoy playing together.

Until Next Time...
