I wasn't so caught up in these wonderful books. I finished The Cross Country Quilter's , which by the way, I wish the story had continued and have started The Runaway Quilt...this is going to be another good read....it has to do with the Underground Railroad during the 1800's.. Did you know the log cabin quilt (my favorite quilt ever) with a center black square hung on a clothesline or porch was a sign of sanctuary for escaping slaves. I always thought it was a yellow square but not according to this story, anyway there is lots of intrigue in this story and history too. Well, I've got to get busy...hope you are having a happy day....hugs, Linda

~ We Stitch Tonight ~
It's Wednesday and that means it's our stitching night. Tonight we planned to start "The Sampler Lady" but we've had a change of heart. Our thoughts are already turning to the holidays and we all wanted to do a Halloween stitch, so instead we are doing....." Kindred Spirits " by Primitive Needle...a sampler with a sweet sentiment. This project calls for Belle Soire silks...this is the first time any of us have used silk floss and they are lush. We had to order the floss and have just received a partial order so until we get the rest of the order our plan is to stitch on Quaker Christmas or a WIP....I think I will.... stitch on "Long May She Wave"....it's coming alive and I just can't hardly wait until it's finished, actually I probably would be finished if...
