Looks like a completed Summer Book Bingo card! I finished my final book this morning and it might be my favorite from my summer reading. Quilting Lessons was recommended by Honore and I quickly downloaded the ebook. But I forgot about it. Last week, I realized that the book I had planned to read for “subtitle on the cover” was going to take more time to read. I opened my Kindle and found Quilting Lessons: notes from the scrap bag of a writer and quilter. As I began reading, I realized that this book was meant to be read right now, during this time of setting aside my fabric and sewing and getting back into the routine of the school year. So many highlighted notes, words that are swirling in my head and my heart. What a wonderful way to end my summer reading. Thanks Mary for another great Book Bingo Summer.
It’s crucial not to lose sight of one important feature of juggling multiple tasks simultaneously: ensuring a small oasis of pleasure here and there in the day. While the computer prints out a chapter draft or while the wash cycle is on spin, don’t forget to take time out to pick sweet peas in the garden. Don’t forget to call the friend who has been so sad lately. There might even be enough time to sew the borders on that quilt that is spread out on the workroom room floor.
