I was thrilled to see that my first 14 blocks were posted on Barbara Brackman's website earlier this week HERE. I'm Breezy Point, by the way.

This week's Sunday night TV schedule is going to be a tricky one. With the finale of Downton Abbey and the Killing Lincoln special on NatGeo, as well as my other faves, Revenge and Walking Dead, I am going to have to do some creative DVR-ing. It's a good thing that a lot of these programs will be rerun at various
|And it's a good thing I'm not hooked on the Good Wife too!|
I'm really looking forward to Killing Lincoln on NatGeo since I read the book by Bill O'Reilly . It stars Billy Campbell as Lincoln and Tom Hanks does the narration. You can watch a trailer and find tons of info on the program HERE.

but Killing Lincoln was a very good, fast paced read.
My friend Sandi and I have been going to lectures with the subject of Abe Lincoln at the Central Lakes College. The first two lectures were given by my ex-boss, Karen DeVries and her husband John. Karen showed examples of Civil War era quilts and talked about the woman's role during the war and John filled in a lot of the history. It was so interesting to see the quilts and quilt blocks tied to that era.
|I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't seen the movie Lincoln, though.|
I'm going to work on my hexies while I'm "watching" television Sunday night. I finally have a plan on how I will use them--can't share what it is yet!
|I'll be using my newest pin cushion. |
How adorable is this felted wool ball that Sandi gave me? I love it--my colors for sure!
