Quote for the day:
These are the start of a "Bug Jar" quilt for my grandson. It will be a twin-size for when he gets big enough to go into a "big boy bed".
I love how the faint stripes in the gray fabric used for the lids looks like those old zinc lids they used to use on canning jars many years ago! :)
When I'm quilting I either watch TV or listen to audiobooks that I download from the library onto my laptop. The book that I am currently listening to is "Escape" by Carolyn Jessop, an excellent book, I might add!
She is a former wife of a polygamist who was high-level in the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints cult in Colorado City, Colorado. I have read several books about the FLDS, especially those which are written by former members. They are REAL eye-openers as to the "real life" of this cult. The book that got me started interested in learning about the dark little secrets in that cult was "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer. He is a great author that has written many documentaries, including "Into Thin Air" about the hikers to Mt. Everest. If anyone is interested about learning more about this cult and it's lifestyle, I encourage you to read books by the people who have escaped it. I have read several and the themes and information are the same, so I know it isn't just one person's grudge. These books certainly paint a different lifestyle than is portrayed on TLC's show, The Sister Wives. I have watched those shows and they are so "white-washed", it is pathetic. It's like glorifying the life of a meth addict when we know that a meth addict's life is not glamorous.
Okay...off of my soapbox now...LOL.
I encourage you to see what your library has available to download to PC, MP3, and CD's. It is amazing what is FREE to us out there...you just need to know about it and use it!
With that, I'm going to sign off for today and go get ready for my physical therapy appointment.
Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment and let me know what you are reading and what you have "released" into the wild recently!
