Building houses

Decided to build one house for each month
so it is a Doll Quilt, well not a Quilt yet, but
soon to be, it is a top, that will be quilted by hand.

This quilt I named Pentecost, the idea came to me last Whitsunday
 and I decided to participate 
at the "Bastelkiste" exhibition in Luxembourg. (very small exhibition)
The theme was to be feast.
But I believe it was a bit too religious. 
But I will hang it in my sewing room, I like the colours.

The books I have been reading lately:

The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath's only novel, published 1963.
The Journals of Sylvia Plath.
Gathering Evidence, a memoir by Thomas Bernhard.
The Loser by Thomas Bernhard

All rather depressing

My life with Mozart by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt (very sweet book)

Then came the best one "LANDVÆTTIR" by Ófeigur Sigurðsson.
very funny story about a young man's life working in a "meat processing factory".
Sorry to say it is only in Icelandic.

Well that's all,
Happy quilting.

You have been really busy. I like your little houses and the 12-months idea.

The houses are looking good - the sashing sets them of beautifully and it will be lovely to quilt. And I think your Pentecost quilt is lovely, such beautiful colours.
Your reading sounds very serious! I only read for 10 or 15 minutes before I go to sleep and I like a good crime novel!
Have a good week and I hope I will be in touch.

The houses look good Paula and the yellow blocks add to the fun. Pentecost is wonderful too, a perfect blend of colour. And a very good idea to follow your depressing books with something funny!
