Another good book

We have beening Internet problems all morning. Hopefully this will post. Today I have a very special appointment to go to. Monday I will tell you all about it. I'm very excited!
Did you know that April is autism awareness month? I just learned this myself. After reading, Jodi Picoult's new book, I know a little more about autism. I personally don't know anyone with autism. But after reading this book, which I highly recommend, I feel for the entire family. Autism doesn't affect just one person, it affects the whole family.

House Rules: A Novel

I did get a little quilting done. My niece called me yesterday after her Dr. appointment. She is now in her 36th week. 4 weeks to go! So I thought I better get busy on her other quilt. This one is to match all the teddy bear decor that they are decorating with. I had an odd left over piece that I'm cutting and making up a pattern as I go. (I didn't want to cut up the bears into small pieces and lose the look of the fabric.) So far I like it. It has a very scrappy look. Earlier I decided that I would add another border of the half square triangles. After doing Lori's CC&C, I've really like the look of small pieces. How do you like my design wall?

Have a wonderful weekend.

Take care, Brandie
