First, There Is a River

From the Goodreads website:  "In this tale of heartache and self-discovery, Emma seeks solace on her uncle's boat, where she is greeted by the kindness and companionship of a stranger. As she learns about herself and the possibility of happiness, her vengeful husband follows close behind."

This book was a surprise read.  I was visiting my aunt and she thought I might like it.  Well, I read it in one day.  I loved Emma and her strength.  Two more in the series, so two more books to read.


I am sewing on the binding.

 and after a washing, I have a finished quilt.


 The pattern is Equal Rights by Swirly Girls and the fabrics were picked by my niece.


Peach Jam

Look at all these peaches.  A friend and I turned them into jam.


We will be eating jam for a while.  


The recipe is from my all time favorite jam book "Food in Jars" by Marisa McClellan.


I think it's time for a piece of toast


or two.


Faithful Place

From the Goodreads website:  "Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen year old kid with a dream of escaping his family's cramped flat on Faithful Place and running away to London with his girl, Rosie Daly. But on the night they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him - probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again. Neither did Rosie. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank, now a detective in the Dublin Undercover squad, is going home whether he likes it or not. 

Getting sucked in is a lot easier than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out what happened to Rosie Daly - and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to himself or anyone else, to get the job done."

Another winner.  I got drawn into the story right away.  I love her books and I've got the next one in my "to read" stack".  

Colorations Again

I've done some more stitching on Colorations

 I would have had more done, but sadly, there was unstitching involved with my last session.
