Back here, in my effort to keep this blog more up to date and to keep writing in diferent ways. Just sent some small stones to http://asmallstone.com. Writing a small stone feels like that very slight change of position in Yoga - not much muscle movement but it makes all the difference.
A M Homes novel May We Be Forgiven stirred and steered my book group into a long and diverse discussion last evening... so its probably by that standard a good book group book. Most felt it was a good read, a couple really did not feel the characters were authentic, and there were the unfinishers, but they said they would now read to the end. We also celebrated Alice Munro's Nobel Prize for Literature and added one of her short story collections to our 2014 list. Amazing how many people do not read short stories -perhaps reading AM will change that for some.
Also submitted to The Emma Press this morning ... 3 poems on motherhood, two written after a workshop at The Foundling museum many years ago. So far these have always been returned so fingers crossed this time.
Now to some more applique ... I'm still making blocks for the Christmas Quilt, its a good job that 25th December comes around every year! Hopefully I'll learn a different applique technique at a Penny Armitage workshop tomorrow ... always good to be taught by someone who's work inspires, see http://www.quiltersguild.org.uk/members/page/penny-armitage. Its all about trees tomorrow so very seasonal. Maybe pics later, or maybe not ...
