99 cents Ebook! Good Read!!!

Hey Y'all Readers!

Here is a 99cents good read! Grow Old With Me by Melinda Evaul.

The story takes place in a little town called "Love Valley", NC. and YES there

really is such a place just north a few miles from where I live.

Love Valley is better known as the Cowboy Capital, where the streets are dirt,

and the only mode of travel is horses! NO CARS ALLOWED!

It was really neat for me when reading this because it mentions places I go all the time.

I felt like I was really there! My hometown of Statesville, NC is mentioned as well as

Charlotte, NC. Oh yea, my grocery store too, Food Lion! It is a Christian based book

so no violence, murders, or bad language! a plus for me!

Here is a brief of the book....

A modern day Beauty and the Beast meet in their fifties when a disfigured carpenter becomes a guest at a bed and breakfast in the western-style tourist town of Love Valley, NC.

Benjamin Pruitt plans to repair the town’s buildings before retiring to a solitary life. Sarah Campbell longs for freedom since her long task as caregiver has ended.

Can Benjamin and Sarah piece the tattered remnants of their lives into a beautiful design to warm their waning years?

Melinda Evaul and her husband enjoy traveling the back roads of North Carolina and Tennessee where rural culture and history are preserved through a unique art form—Quilt Barn Squares.

Come follow her adventures along the Quilt Trails of America in this series of novels.
She is working on her next book about a "barn quilt painter".

Changed my mind!

I decided I didn't like my fabric choice that I posted the other day for the Quilt Story Series, especially after I received my layer cake, "Pattenista" by Benartex I purchased from Missouri Star Quilt Co thur their daily deals.  It has some bold, wild colors in some wild patterns.  But I love it!

Here is my first block for March - the nine patch.


I also decided on the fabrics I will use for the Boomerang 7 Swap at the Quilting Board.
I am in a large group and will be swaping with 35 others so I a using two groups of fabrics.
The first one is yellow and lavender florals with pinks, oranges, and greens

The second group is blues and whites.  I have always wanted to do a blue/white only quilt.

Here is half of the blocks from the Boom 6 swap.  I have them on my design wall trying out
the sashing and blender blocks. 

Sorry for the bad lighting on this picture.  So far, I am pleased with it.  BUT... If I know me,
I'll end up changing my mind on this layout several times before it's done!
