Two More "Same But Different", Movie, Book, Dog from caledonia quilter

 Here are two more quilts of the same pattern, but different colour choices.



The pink quilt got a fun back too - made with a floral panel.

Whenever I go to a quilt show I hang around the aisles where they've hung all the quilts that were made at a workshop, so you can see the "same but different" quilts.  I've learned a lot about colour by paying close attention to how other people make use of their fabrics.

MOVIE:
I watched West Side Story and did not enjoy it.  It was depressing.

BOOK:
I finished reading The Diamond ...

After a recent trivia question, I realized that I had never read what is considered the first modern detective story (The Murders In The Rue Morgue) which was written by Edgar Allen Poe! Who knew? The stories have a Sherlock Holmes feel with observation and random knowledge used to solve the cases. The book C. Augusta Dupin is actually 3 short stories. Written in 1841, it took a minute to become accustom to the language of the time! I’m going to be reading more Poe!

Same but Different, Coco updates, More UFO's from caledonia quilter

 I love seeing the same quilt made two different ways.  These are customer quilts, but this pattern is definitely on my "to-do" list.

Example #1 - dark geese with light background.


Example #2 - light geese with dark background.

COCO UPDATES

  • She's still terrified of DH.  I keep reminding both of us that we should expect to have 14 years with her, so calm down.  If it takes a year for her to get comfortable, then so be it.
  • We go out in the backyard in the afternoons now.  She kinda plays but not for very long.  She HAS barked at ...

Leave it to Jodi to tackle the tough and current medical and social issues. This book takes place in an abortion clinic in Mississippi. The laws in Mississippi make it hard to get an abortion and this book weaves these constrictions into this fictional story following several lives. Picoult has a knack for showing you different points of views of a current issue. I’ve read several Picoult books and they are all very well written. I 100% recommend this book!

I loved this book - and the ending really gave me pause. It was my first book by Hervé Le Tellier and I really liked the writing style. Part sci-fi part mystery, it drew me in and kept me listening!

I might be the only person that didn’t read this when it first came out. I also thought it wrapped up nicely but just found out it is the first of a series of 4. I enjoyed reading this book, I’m not sure it will be on my list of all time favorites, but I will search out the next in the series! Did you read this book and what did you think?

This is another book that came up on my “All time best mystery books” search. It was written in 1961 and is the first one in the George Smiley series. I’m not usually a huge spy book reader, but this one intrigued me so I’ll prob grab the next one at some point! Do you have a favorite LeCarre book?
