Here is my Pile of Possibilities for June...the books under "Upgrade" are all for book groups or my spin from the Off Your Shelf Reading Challenge. The books above that I am hoping to get to. I also have some books on my Nook from way back when that fit the June Austen read so hope to read or DNF some of those. I also have "The Widow" for AJ Dunn's read from the library on audio.
If you came here for sewing I will write another post here in a few! If you are a reader or want to join in (and maybe when a prize) head over to Sue's blog and check out the Big Book Summer Challenge and leave me a comment so I can follow you! Happy reading!

Now I am working on the light blue string parts. I am a little more than half way done with that. I cleaned out all my strings and have had to raid my blue strips too since I used this same color for mine and they are quite depleted!

I was planning to make this originally in green and then decided I would do a pair so I could do them with green and yellow. The pieces are VERY SMALL and in the course of making one I decided I really did not want to make the pair--though the green sixteen patches are done and the sashings and cornerstones are cut. I thought maybe I could use those sixteen patches in the border, but them realized what I LOVED about the quilt was the braided border of Bonnie's pattern so I will eventually continue along and make that.
My cousin's husband had a serious accident the end of March. He fell off a forklift and landed on his head. He is forty something and is a great husband and father. He has a long recovery after a seven hour surgery and hopefully will walk again one day. He is hard working physical guy and I am praying for his full recovery. Life turns on a dime.
In other news, we gave our sixty day notice here and plan to move to Waukesha before summer. We are going to look at a place today. Smaller than here (oy!) and not as nice but only five ish minutes from Hazel and her parents which is our goal. We hope to be able to save money up and buy again in a year or two in that area. Still waiting for my DA hearing results--and much depends on that.
