I am always inspired by Thimbles weekend. The last few weeks, I have been unable to get motivated to do any sewing, but my creative juices are flowing once again. Thimbles was last weekend, and there were some beautiful quilts for show and tell. Suzanne finally finished the hundreds of flying geese necessary for the beauty above.

Linen Closet Quilts. I am definitely loving this quilt. The blocks are big and the applique is easy. This is one BOM that I have been able to keep up with. I think that there are only two more blocks to go, can't wait to see them.

World Book Day. I never actually realized there was a World Book Day until this year. I knew there was a Read Across America, which was yesterday and the birthday of Dr. Seuss. We are celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday tomorrow at school, with the studnets wearing their pj's and doing special activities in the classroom. I will be dressed as the Cat in the Hat. I hope to plan ahead and have an entire week of celebrations next year to cover both World Book Day and Read Across America Day. At school I will be reading Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?, one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. The kids have a great time making all of the noises with me. I have been branching out in my at home reading. I usually don't read biographies or authbiographies but my friend Becky, recommended The Glass Castle, a memoir by Jeannette Walls. I just finished it today and have to say it was wonderful. It is one of those books that really makes you think, and makes you thankful for everything that you have. I know that after finishing this I will think twice before I complain about something in my house or not having something. For purely entertainment purposes, I have just started The Union Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverinni, this book is set during the Civil War and relates the story of how the women of Pennsylvania manged without their loved ones. I enjoy most of her books, some are better than others (in my opinion) and so far this one is a winner. Celebrate World Book day by reading a book!!!
