Rose and Butterfly Quilt block 12


Here's the latest installment. I don't know why my pictures always come out blurry. Matt tells me to read the manual, but....

Books: I made my last purge of books. So far I've gotten rid of 480 books. I'm rather proud of myself for letting go of possessions, but it does hurt. I'll get over it. I kept my favorite authors -- still too many boxes of books in storage.

Have you heard that libraries will be able to loan books on the Kindle? I'm excited about this, but I know our backwater library won't implement this for a long time, if ever. Maybe when we move to Austin it will be better.

I love seeing updates on your Rose and Butterfly quilt, It is so pretty and delicate.

And thanks for the news on the Kindle Library service. Im hoping my library will pick this up as well.

480 books??? wow, I thought we had a book problem... Although given our book collection is spread over 2 homes and an office, it is pretty epic...
Lovely stitching as ever. I adore the delicate border on this piece

I love how your R&B quilt is coming along, so beautiful.

Did you know you can join the Philadelphia library and request ebooks from them? There's a fee if you don't live in Philly, but they have a great system and at least for me it's worth it. I'm excited Kindle is finally going to work with the libraries, but like you my county library system is backwards and doesn't have ebook loans and probably won't for a long time.
