Playing Catch Up

The party is over :) and I am playing a little blog catch up.  I did a lot of reading over the holidays and will be sharing those books over the next few days.  The last time I was in Powell's in Portland I reviewed the new releases wall and chose several books to read that I had never heard of...well, the first one was The Girl With All The Gifts.  I really didn't know what this book was about until I started reading it...Zombies...I actually read a Zombie book! And, you know was a good read.  I doubt I will be adding Zombie reads to my regular books of choice but this one was a VERY interesting.

Last night a group of us wives and husbands went to the movie & dinner...All I can say is you MUST see The Big Short!!!  It was very well done and although it was about the economic bubble of 2008...and doesn't that sound like a big wasn't!  In fact it was mesmerizing...hard to fathom and a whole lot of lessons to be learned.  If there was a 10 star rating I would give this movie a big 10!

I wanted to share the December-January quilt exhibit at QuiltWorks featured mini-groups from Central Oregon.  That is the best part of quilting...the people you meet.  You may not agree politically, religiously or culturally but when it comes to quilting you understand each other.  The show included Friendship Quilts by The Blockin' Robins, Quilts based on Mr. Mac & Me by Book, Scissors, Quilt...Decorative bowls by Founding Fibers and 2 challenges by the Sundance Art Quilters, one based on a pattern by member Dianne Browning and the second Color Improv.  Enjoy the slide show and lets get the 2016 quilting year off to a great start!
