Quilting Fun


While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

How to Procrastinate

If procrastination were an Olympic sport, I could compete on a grand scale. I have this prom dress to get finished, and I really want to finish it so I can get back to my quilting projects. So what do I do instead of finishing the dress??

I read a book, of course.

I picked it up on Tuesday and finished it on Wednesday. So you know I barely put it down to do anything else!  While I'm mentioning it, I might as well recommend it, too. It is a wonderfully satisfying read!

This pic is taken from the author's website. It's reviewed as "a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race and medicine." Riveting  is the operative word there - I swear, I couldn't put it down. It's non-fiction, and is being made into a movie, I believe. My book club is meeting next week to discuss this book, and we will have many topics to cover and issues to explore.

Strangely, I really was not looking forward to reading this book. It's heavily science-based, and I just couldn't see myself getting into it. How wrong I was! It was incredibly fascinating, and I strongly recommend it to any of you readers out there in the blogosphere.

So, you see how my procrastination works? I will read a book that I am not even looking forward to reading in order to avoid working on something that I really MUST get busy on!

Geesh.

I liked the book too althogh found the family a bit whiney.

Been there, done that, as far as sometimes finding ANYTHING else to do when deadlines were staring at me.
Book sounds interesting, and I'd also heard about the plans for a movie. I think Oprah's involved.

It sounds about right to me. Hope you get that dress (and book) finished so you can get back to quilting.
