A Finish, but not a quilt...

Unfortunately I got hit with a nasty, nasty cold a couple of weeks ago so no quilting got done.  I have had a lot of trouble getting back into my sewing room actually.  Last weekend my husband finally put up my design wall for me and some small bins I bought at Ikea to help organize my sewing room, however, I was called in to work 3 days this week (I do substitute work for the EAs at my girls' school).  No sewing... :(

I have managed to finish reading Jennifer Chiaverini's latest book though: The Wedding Quilt

I was lying on the couch, coughing my head off, one night, I thought it would be great to have The Wedding Quilt and get started on it.  I didn't really feel like heading off to the book store to get it though.  Luckily, my husband has a Kindle e-reader.  I kindly asked him if I could borrow it.  He got the book and within 5 minutes I was reading, didn't even have to get in the car!  I think I can definitely get use to that!  

I absolutely love Jennifer's books.  I get so involved and really want to go to Elm Creek Quilts.  It's really too bad it is a fictional place.  If you haven't read her books, I highly recommend them!  

I am off to embroider some labels now!

I am linking up to TGIFF over at Quokka Quilts.  Head on over and check out some great finishes!!
