Summer Reading...


Now that it is officially summer,
I have my 'official' summer reading list!

Not your usual run-of-the-mill list of sitting-on-the-beach books
but these are a must for me this summer!

And....
my reading list is more than just for reading!

It is also for doing!!!

tryiing some of Ruth McDowell's piecing techniques
I have wanted to try Ruth McDowell's piecing techniques for a long time!


As I read through the books, 
I intend to do some of the exercises in the books
and learn some new techniques!


And since I am not a one-project-at-a-time kinda gal,
I am reading more than one book at a time!!!
Susan Carlson's book is a new addition to my library...

and her projects are really fun...

but seem to be resulting in a bit of a mess!!!

And just in case I run out of books to read (as if!)...

I have plenty more books on the list!
