unraveled wednesday |1.30.2019 …




Bright sunshine greets us on this chipper and cold (31°), next-to-last day of January…we are grateful for the sun’s warmth and that the furnace is steadily pumping out heat. I have been in this house, in January when there was no power, therefore, no heat. Brrr! I can’t imagine what it must feel like in SD, WI, MN, IL with wind chills in the minus 50°s… I hope the homeless are in shelters and made myself a note: Send a contribution to our city’s non-profit homeless shelter hotline/transport service.

Speaking of heat and sunshine, I listened to What Should I Read Next?’s podcast #168, on my walk one day last week. The guest shared a very ambitious 2019 reading plan…but what really caught my attention was her review of The Warmth of Other Suns. I have that book; it has been languishing on my bookshelf longer than I care to divulge. Given to me by my friend Pat  (who devoured the book over a period of 3-4 days – she’s a binge reader), I decided it’s time to move the book up in the queue. I may also download the audio version to take along as my walking companion – tho’ it’s going to have to get a bit warmer first!

My friend Pat also made the lap quilt in the photo! A surprise Christmas present, machine-pieced and lovingly hand-quilted! Plus the backing fabric comes from OR!

Books, Quilts and a Good Friend are the best! Agreed

Joining Kat and friends for this week’s Unraveled Wednesday!

  1. My book group is reading The Warmth of Other Suns this year — it’s our selection for March and April (we’re spreading it over 2 months since it is such a sizeable book). I’m really looking forward to reading it! It’s been on my to-read list for a long time now. Stay warm, Honoré. XO


  2. Another title added to my forever long “want to read” list. I picked up three books at the library today (plus a cookbook), two novels that are on my list, and “Joyful.” I read the first few pages of “Joyful,” and promptly ordered it from Amazon. I should have read it the year my OLW was JOY—but, of course, it hadn’t been published then. I’ve already read most of the cookbook “Now and Again” and have made a list of the recipes I want to try in the three weeks I have the book. Now to preview the two novels, and see if I want to move them to the “read now” pile.


    1. The fabric is a winner…and I too love word printed fabrics. The book is a great and hefty tomb! Read on!

  3. BOOKS, QUILTS AND A GOOD FRIEND ARE THE BEST! INDEED!!! I’ve been searching out titles for a read-along with Katie and Warmth might be a good one. (I’d listen. I LOVE Robin Miles).
