Crazy Batik

The quilting is done.  Here's one of the blocks.

 

Burying the threads will keep me busy for a while.

The Forgotten

The Forgotten (John Puller, #2)The Forgotten by David Baldacci

From the Goodreads website:  "In Paradise, nothing is what it seems...

Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case-but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

A picture-perfect town on Florida's Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt's death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller's father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.

What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt's death was no accident . . . and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed."

This is my second John Puller book and I like this character.  Just enough going on and not too "over the top". I'll be reading the next book to see what else Army Special Agent Puller is up to.

Nametag

I've been a member of the Shenandoah Needlepoint Guild for at least two years now.  It's about time that I got to work on my nametag.

 

Not much, but it's a start.

Progress

There's been some progress on the baby blanket.  

 

Not a lot, but I'm happy with anything I can get done.  This is the fourth of seven colors.

Crazy Batik

I can see that I haven't posted about this quilt in quite a while.  Last time it didn't have all its borders, now it does.  In fact, it's just about quilted.  This picture is when I first started the quilting.

I'm pretty happy with the way it's turning out.  The more you quilt, the better it gets.
