Pennington Sampler Quilt

The Pennington Sampler quilt is finally looking like it might get finished one day.  It has the top, two sides, and the bottom row attached.

It's ready for the borders and the borders are ready for it.


Kill Shot

Kill Shot (Mitch Rapp, #2)Kill Shot by Vince Flynn

From the Goodreads website:  "For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard.

Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes. The door to the hotel room is kicked open and gunfire erupts all around Rapp. In an instant the hunter has become the hunted. Rapp is left wounded and must flee for his life.

The next morning, the news breaks in Washington that Libya’s Oil Minister has been killed along with three innocent civilians and four unidentified men. The French authorities are certain that the gunman is wounded and on the loose in Paris. As the finger pointing begins, Rapp’s handlers have only one choice—deny any responsibility for the incident and pray that their newest secret weapon stays that way, avoiding capture and dying quietly. One person in the group, however, is not prone to leaving things to chance. Rapp has become a liability, and he absolutely cannot be allowed to be taken alive by the French authorities. But it will soon become clear that nothing is more dangerous than a wounded and cornered Mitch Rapp.

This is the second book in the Mitch Rapp series and I most definitely need to read the first book.  I enjoyed this one, but I do want to know how it all begins and what happens next.  I see many more of these in my future.


The August Garden

It's been hot and humid and the garden is getting a little crispy.  There are still a few things blooming.  Hot pokers are so pretty.

And these wildflowers out in the field.

The seed heads are incredible.

The butterflies are loving the Joe Pye Weed.

We still have a next of baby birds.

He was hoping I was his mother with something to eat.


Another Baby Blanket

A couple of years ago, I knit a baby blanket for my nephew's new baby.  Well, he's doing it again.  They're having another baby, so I'd best get busy.

This is the beginnings of a Color Block Baby Blanket from Purl Bee.  I love the colors but its hard to believe that I'm going to be a Great Aunt again.  I can't possibly be that old, can I?



More Pennington

I've added a side strip of blocks to the Pennington Saturday Sampler.

I really need to think of a better name for this project.
