Fun Fact Friday Freebie

First, I'll announce last week's winner.  I generated a number at random and came up with:


Iroghair/Iparks!

Congratulations, Iroghair/Iparks!  I've contacted you via separate email, and I'll get your fat quarter off to you right away.

As I write this, I'm sort of drawing a blank on what question I want to ask you.  Sometimes I allow the season or upcoming holidays to generate questions for me.  But what's coming up?  Leap Day?  I can't think of anything for that, can you?  Spring cleaning?  Booorrrring.  Sometimes I let my own activities during the week help me generate a question.  All I've been doing is hand sewing bindings, and so even my sewing isn't helping me much.  So, okay, I'll make it easy for all of us.


Read any good books lately?  Share the title for a chance to win!

As always, you must leave a comment with your response to the FFFF question of the day to be eligible to win a fat quarter. Followers can leave an additional comment for an additional chance to win. And if you have my FFFF button posted on your blog, please leave an additional comment for a third chance to win. Winner will be announced next week.

  3. Hi,
    My latest book is "501 Rotary Cut Blocks". I have been patch working for 4 years (I owned a patchwork shop and have sewn for 20+ years)I would say after being in the shop I have A LOT of knowledge on making quilts, techniques etc. Well, I have NO experience making actual sampler blocks, I made heaps of samples for the shop but no actual sampler blocks. That is why this book is my current bedtime read, daytime read, afternoon tea read.
    Hugs and I love your blog.

  5. Actually, yes, I'm currently reading a delightful book -- it was free on my Kindle! It's Heir to the Everlasting, a Southern tale, "spoken" in a delightful accent.

  10. Reading 2 right now!! One is for the bathroom and waiting rooms as it is long, the Steve Jobs biography, really good. And the other one is An American Tragedy. Really good. I had to read it in high school and remember liking it, so I had to try it again.

  11. I recently read a couple of books that were about Beatrix Potter. They were fiction based on her life. Then I checked out the biography of her life. She was a very fascinating woman.

  45. I don't read enough lately. I just don't take the time for it. I used to read nonstop though. As a result I honestly can't remember what the last book I read was. Right now though I'm working on Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts. I've read it before but I finally got the other books in the trilogy and I have to refresh my memory.

  52. Very occasionally, my son will refer me to a book or a series. He recently loaned me a copy of his Shinju by Larua Joh Rowland. It's a totally different kind of book than I usually read, but also right up my alley. It's a mystery set in Edo, Japan in the Edo time period. It took me a while to feel comfortable in that time period, so I read the first half of the book slowly. Then I sped up, and now I'm reading the second one, Bundori, at my usual rate. Some of them are available on Kindle, too. Which is good, because Bundori is $23 used for a paperback!

  56. A Simple Act of Gratitude by John Kralik.
    Using my first-graders' AR rating system, I give it "an ok book." I'm amazed by people who have to "learn" to be grateful late in life.
