Quilting Update and some random musings

I'm supposed to be blogging about our Quilting Week Four, but friends, I'm not ready.
I'm still sewing my hearts onto my muslin squares. I've got 20 left. Will you forgive me? I promise I will be up to speed next week and ready to move on.

So I decided on a very random post today. I'm all caught up in the first week of school happenings, deadlines for the new book, and stillllllllllll working on the house. (Door trim and doors are back up, now they need to be painted.)

How about a picture of some of my arts and crafts books? It's lovely isn't it? Sigh...
I heart books.

Sara is one of my daily reads and she showcased Meg today (awesome blog!), and that is where I found this really fun meme. (Just to add to the randomness of this post today)

I've been so busy these past couple of weeks that I am behind on the heart quilt, too. I'm still cutting my hearts so am glad for the break! I hope I can get some sewn onto the squares by next week ... look forward to the next step!
