Morgan's Quilt

I'm making a quilt for my niece.  She chose the pattern and the fabrics and this is what we have.

 

The pattern is  Equal Rights from Swirly Girls Designs and the fabrics are mostly batiks.

Ready Player One

 Ready Player OneReady Player One by Ernest Cline

From the Goodreads website:  "In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the  OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape."

 

What do I say about this book?  Very light reading, almost to the point of being a young adult book.  If you like online gaming, this is a nice beach read.

Jam Time

It's time to make jam.

 My least favorite part is pitting the cherries.

It's such a pretty red color. 

Three jars of jam and a bit leftover for the cook.  Awesome, because my most favorite part is eating the jam, especially cherry jam.

 

I use the recipe from my favorite book for making preserves, Food in Jars.

Colorations

I've done a little more work on Colorations.

I used gold Kreinek to make the French knots on the little trees.  Next up will be to fill in the spaces by the trees.  I was thinking about blue, but that would be blue next to blue.  I'll have to look at my threads again.

 This was a class by Orna Willis.
