The Finishing Dance

The Finishing Dance...that's what I'm doing...my Simply Sophistcated BOM came in the mail yesterday from Fat Quarter Shop and I did it today...all done for this month...YIPPEE!! This was a fun and very easy set to do...no extra nine patches.And my first book finish for 2009...I started it in 2008 and finished it last night...a very, very good book...very sad, very touching and extremely gripping. Nicole recommended this one a while ago, and she was soooooo right...it's a very good read. Thanks Nicole...I'll be waiting for another recommendation.

I would highly recommend Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin. It's about a woman forensic doctor in the Middle Ages. It's a murder mystery and very well written.

Will you perform the dance for me next time I see you?

Yes love getting the BOM on the done list, and that does look like a good book. I just finished The Christmas Sweater, also a good book.
