Quilting Stash – Program 123, Reading about Quilts
Running time: 01:10:05 Size: 24.1MB
I love to read. I love to get into the world that I’m reading about, only to be surprised when someone speaks to me and I wake up “out of the book” to find that I’m still sitting on my living room sofa. I love to drink deeply from the written word, to get intimate with the people and situations in each story.
(WebGuy’s Note: Annie’s family is happy when she is done “drinking”, finishes her book, and rejoins our family. Annie is known to stay up until 4:00 in the morning finishing a book with which she is obsessed — Annie then has to “catch-up” on her sleep.)
The books I will share in this program:
Robin’s book –
“Twilight” New York Bestseller, written by Stephenie Meyer. I have to blame Sandi Henderson, of Portabello Pixie
who shared the trailer for the upcoming movie on her blog before she left for Spring Market. ; )
Here’s a link to the trailer:
So if you get sucked in to the books, don’t say I didn’t warn you! Just don’t do it if you have a deadline.

Another great book that I had to read TWICE (and back-to-back even) is featured in this podcast, “The Girl Who Stopped Swimming” by Joshilyn Jackson.
I had the pleasure of interviewing author, Joshilyn and the Art Quilter who inspired her character “Laurel”, Pamela Allen.
It was so much fun to talk with these influential ladies, Joshilyn from Georgia and Pamela from Canada, on the phone. Did I mention lately that I LOVE technology?!
Have fun listening to the interview, then come back here to the links for Joshilyn’s and Pamela’s websites — and to leave a comment for the opportunity to win a copy of the book.
Joshilyn’s website is Joshilyn Jackson.com.
Pamela’s is Pamelart.
On Pamela’s website, you will be able to see the quilt that Joshilyn commissioned her to make for the book and her “Two Sisters…” quilt that we discussed in the interview.
Coming up very soon… an interview with Terri Thayer, author of the runaway hit, “Wild Goose Chase”.
Also, stay tuned for a Spring Quilt Market review with Quilting Stash listener (and friend), Phyllis Barnett!
Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win my copy of “The Girl Who Stopped Swimming”. I will draw the winner on May 25th!
