#13 Book Of Books

It's that time of year where we are all looking for something to make for Christmas. I am blessed with a creative daughter-in-law, Wendy. She loves to read and she is in a book club. Quite a few years ago her mom mentioned how nice it would be to have a list of the books she read. Wendy took this and ran with it. She has been recording the books she has read since and calls it her "Book Of Books". Below you can see some of the beautiful pages from that book.



As you can see it is pretty impressive. I have also included a picture of Wendy and my son, Dylan.


I too belong to a book club which was started about a year-and-a-half ago. I was inspired by Wendy's idea and when we started I wanted to make something special for each member. I took Wendy's" Book of Books" idea and made each one of my book club members their own book that they could record what we had read. While they may not be as impressive as Wendy's, it is a great way to recall all of the books we have read.

Thanksgiving is this week. It is my favorite holiday! My daughter, Jesse, was born on Thanksgiving. The nicest gift I could ask for! May your day be filled with family and friends.

Asking a quilter to mend is like asking Michelangelo to paint a garage.
