Most of my sewing progress this week has been on my stock for the craft show in November but I did make a few blocks for the Molli Sparkles Broken Herringbone Quilt Along (MSBHQAL).
I'll be honest. These blocks are more than a little frustrating for me. But they are getting easier with practice. The first one took me an hour. Then I did two at the same time and it took me an hour to do the two of them. I have one more navy one almost complete and then it will be put on hold until I receive some swapped strings in the mail :)
In non sewing news, I started reading Harry Potter to my 7 year old this week. It's been a few years since I read them for the first time and it is even better now. She knows nothing about the story and is completely into already. At the end of each chapter she groans "Why does is always have to end at the juicy bits!!". And they've only just arrived at Hogwarts. I can't wait to see her reactions when things start to actually happen!!
And this has me thinking of all the other books and series I loved as a child that I want to read with her. So tell me, what are your favorite books/series from your childhood?
