This and That

Although I haven't been reading as much lately, I have quite a few reviews scheduled for closer to the time of publication.   A lot of the scheduled reviews were read in May or June.

July and August have been slow reading months, but I did read The Windup Girl and Shipbreaker by Paolo Bacigalupi, Night Watch by Linda Fairstein, and The White Forest .....need to review them.

interesting article about science fiction

good science fiction reading list

Booker Prize Long List

What I have been doing (instead of reading) is making a boro jacket, working on white on white pieces, and making encrusted pieces of embroidery.

I posted lots of progress pictures on Bayou Quilts.

I've done at least 9 of these encrusted pieces.

Two of the white on white blocks in progress...
I've done more on both of these since the pictures were taken.


  1. Nice to hear from you, Jenclair. You are always making something beautiful! I've been so busy this summer and have posted almost nothing. Doesn't seem like that will change anytime soon. LOL

  2. Kay - Thanks, Kay! Hope your summer has been better than last year. Last year the Austin area was a frying pan.

    Ours has been--fewer days over 100 (a lot fewer) and a little more rain.
