Rogue with a Brogue - Suzanne Enoch

Product Description(
London, 1817: Stuck in a Mayfair ballroom thanks to his lovestruck brother, highlander Arran MacLawry wants nothing but a bit of distraction from an arranged betrothal-and a clever auburn-haired lass in a vixen's mask promises just that...until he discovers that she's the granddaughter of the Campbell, chief of clan MacLawry's longtime rival. Despite their families' grudging truce, falling for fiery Mary Campbell is a notion too outlandish even for this Highlander...
Raised on tales of savage MacLawrys, Mary is stunned to realize the impressively strapping man in the fox's mask is one of them. Surely the enemy shouldn't have such a broad chest, and such a seductive brogue? Not that her curiosity matters-any dalliance between them is strictly forbidden, and she's promised to another. But with the crackling spark between them ready to ignite, love is worth every risk...

Language: English 
ISBN-10: 1250041619 
ISBN-13: 978-1250041616

MY THOUGHTS:  This is the second book in the series.  It is a romance book set in 1817 England.  Two people who aren't suppose to meet, let alone fall in love, is what the whole book is about.  The MacLawry clan and the Campbell clan are at odds with each other.  They have a truce for now, but Arran and Mary have just upset the apple cart.  They have fallen in love and now they are on the run, to make to Gertna Green so they can be married before anyone catches them.  Is this going to cause a war between clans,  that's a definite yes, but hopefully Arran and Mary can stop it.  Really good book.  I give this book 4.....

MY THOUGHTS:  This is my book club's choice for October.  Very good book, grabbed me at page 1 and I finished it in 2 days.  The description above pretty much is what the book is about.   But the ending isn't what you would think.  I was totally not ready for the ending, didn't see that one coming.  The good thin is, that is a sequill to this book due out in 2017.  So I'll be looking forward to it coming out next year.  I give this book 5.....

The Woman in the Photo - Mary Hogan

Product Description(
In this compulsively-readable historical novel, from the author of the critically-acclaimed Two Sisters, comes the story of two young women—one in America’s Gilded Age, one in scrappy modern-day California—whose lives are linked by a single tragic afternoon in history.
1888: Elizabeth Haberlin, of the Pittsburgh Haberlins, spends every summer with her family on a beautiful lake in an exclusive club. Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains above the working class community of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the private retreat is patronized by society’s elite. Elizabeth summers with Carnegies, Mellons, and Fricks, following the rigid etiquette of her class. But Elizabeth is blessed (cursed) with a mind of her own. Case in point: her friendship with Eugene Eggar, a Johnstown steel mill worker. And when Elizabeth discovers that the club’s poorly maintained dam is about to burst and send 20 million tons of water careening down the mountain, she risks all to warn Eugene and the townspeople in the lake’s deadly shadow.
Present day: On her eighteenth birthday, genetic information from Lee Parker’s closed adoption is unlocked. She also sees an old photograph of a genetic relative—a 19th Century woman with hair and eyes likes hers—standing in a pile of rubble from an ecological disaster next to none other than Clara Barton, the founder of the American Red Cross. Determined to identify the woman in the photo and unearth the mystery of that captured moment, Lee digs into history. Her journey takes her from California to Johnstown, Pennsylvania, from her present financial woes to her past of privilege, from the daily grind to an epic disaster. Once Lee’s heroic DNA is revealed, will she decide to forge a new fate?

MY THOUGHTS:  This is my book club's choice for September.  This is a really awesome book, I really enjoyed reading it.  If you love to read about history, this is a great book that takes you back to 1888, Johnstown, Pennsylvania for the great flood.  There is a historical person in the book also, Clara Barton, who started the American Red Cross.  It jumps between 1888 to present day with ease, the story line just follows the past and the present wonderfully.  I give this book 5....

I'M IN A SLUMP.......

I'm so far behind on everything....books, quilts, embroidery and the creative challenge I've been working on.   I didn't get my circles done for August, my Guinnie Inspired quilt didn't get done and my embroidery is sadly lacking and stitches.  My creative side has taken a vacation, can't seem to get the juices going again.  Haven't been reading much either.  I've been reading the same book for over a week, which is a long time for me.  So I'm hoping September will be a better productive month.  Hope everyone has a wonderful LABOR DAY weekend!

More Than Rivals - Ken Abrahm

Product Description(
An Inspiring True Story Set in the Midst of the Civil Rights Era

By 1970, racial tension was at a breaking point in the southern town of Gallatin, Tennessee. Desegregation had emotions running high. The town was a powder keg ready to erupt. But it was also on the verge of something incredible.

Eddie Sherlin and Bill Ligon were boys growing up on opposite sides of the tracks who shared a passion for basketball. They knew the barriers that divided them--some physical landmarks and some hidden in the heart--but those barriers melted away when the boys were on the court. After years of playing wherever they could find a hoop, Eddie and Bill entered the rigors of their respective high school teams. And at the end of the 1970 season, all-white Gallatin High and all-black Union High faced each other in a once-in-a-lifetime championship game. What happened that night would challenge Eddie and Bill--and transform their town.

MY THOUGHTS: This is my book club choice for August.  I'm not really too fond of reading books on sports, but this book is more than sports.  It's about two boys, one white, one black that become friends during a time when this was unheard of.  The one thing that connects them is basketball.  Eddie and Bill eventually grow apart, but the friendship is still there.  It is shown at the Finals of the 1970 season.  Eddie's school, all white, Gallatin High and Bill's school, all black Union High have to face each other in the finals.  What will become of the town if the black school wins?  What will happen if the white school wins?  I'm not have to read the book to find out.  I give this book 5.....

Hounded - David Rosenfelt

Product Description(
Andy Carpenter isn't sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend, Laurie Collins. He certainly isn't expecting to show up at a crime scene. But that's exactly where he arrives-at the house where Pete has just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Diaz. Upstairs are Danny's now orphaned eight-year-old son and basset hound. And that, Andy discovers, is why he and Laurie were called to the scene-Pete wants them to take care of the boy and the dog so they won't get thrown into the "system." This is already asking a lot, but soon Pete needs another big favor from Andy. Pete himself has come under suspicion for Danny's murder, and he needs defense attorney Andy to represent him...and to find out what really happened in Danny's house that day.

MY THOUGHTS: This is the 3rd book I've read of this series.  And they were all out of order.  But they are great stand alone books.  One of Andy's best friends is under arrest for murder.  It's Andy's job to defend him.  So he puts the team into action.  As they come across some mysterious deaths, they start to see a pattern and it all links back to who killed Danny Diaz, and it isn't Pete.  The only thing is all the witnesses for the defense keep coming up missing or killed.  You will never figure out who the actual person is that's behind all this.  I didn't, I was totally thrown off on this one.  I give this book 5.....

Miss Bella likes to wear her bunny rabbit hat, more to play in than to wear for the cold.  But really, 90 degrees and 100% humidity is just a little tooooo much.

Starts with G....
Even though we haven't had any significant amounts of rain in the last 20 days, our grass is still green.  A few brown spots are showing up.

Weeks Favorite....
Bella and Luke playing and Bob is watching.

I've been working on my circles of course.  I'm on day 213 of making these circles.  I've got the July circles done...well I thought I did.  I counted and I'm one short.  So have to finish that one up and on to August.  You can check out all the circles over at Quilty Folk. 
I also used colors for the RSC, what is this you might ask.  Rainbow Scrap Challenge, the idea is to use up all your scraps.  For the month of July, the colors were Hot Pink with pink, red and green added in.  The colors for August are Purples with Greens.
I've started putting my circles together, I've got January and February all done.
I'm working on March now.  I think I'm going with 3 months across for my width, the length will be the rest of the year.  I'm also going to change the smiley faces.  I'm going to use a yellow or green smiley face for April, May and June.

I've also been working on my Gwinnie Medallion quilt.  You can check out the info over at Humble Quilts.  The choice for July was Log Cabin.  Weeeeellllll, I don't piece blocks, I do needle turn applique, so had to get a little inventive on this one.  So I done Lincoln Logs in place of Log Cabin.
The next border for August is Stars.  So I'll have to figure out what to do with that one.  It has to be applique.  I'll have to surf the web for a star.  You may notice it's a little wrinkled, my iron decided to quit on me, so have to buy a new one.  Hoping to get one tomorrow while I'm out and about.  So what has everyone else been working on?

Andy Carpenter's accountant, Sam Willis, is stunned to receive a phone call out of the blue from Barry Price, a high school friend he hasn't spoken to in years, pleading for help with something too frightening to discuss on the phone. Barry needs Sam's financial acumen and lawyer Andy Carpenter's legal expertise―and he needs them immediately. But when Sam almost runs over an injured dog lying in the road on the way to Barry's house, he can't drive off without waiting for help to arrive. By the time Sam makes it, Barry's already taken off on a private airplane headed who-knows-where.
Assuming their help is no longer needed, Sam and Andy turn their full attention to helping the dog Sam found recover from his injuries. Then they learn that Barry's plane has crashed, and they come to the terrifying realization that Sam was also supposed to have been killed on that plane.

MY THOUGHTS:  Although this is a series, it is also a good stand alone book.  Andy has one big case, to prove Denise didn't kill her husband, Barry.  Andy hasn't got much to go on so he starts the team on the look for anything and everything to prove this.  Andy's team finds some interesting stuff about Barry.  He's moving lots of money to an off shore bank.  What could this mean?  And why are people that Andy talks to come up dead?  Does this really have anything to do with Barry?  Or Andy's client Denise?  Just when Andy is ready for the defense to start it's case, his client accuses Sam of having an affair with her and Andy of knowing this and not telling the court.  Sam is arrested for murder and Denise has a new lawyer.  Andy has to prove that Sam didn't commit this crime or he will spend the rest of his life in prison.  Can Andy and his team do this?  You'll have to read the book to find out.  I give this book 5....

What the heck is this?  Well, for people that stitch, it's the trimmings of fabric, thread ends, yarn ends and whatever else is left from stitching, quilts, embroidery, cross stitching, knitting, crocheting,  well you get the idea.  Daffycat is the host for the Totally Useless Stitch a long.  Once a month we share all our snips of leftovers.  As usual, I've forgot to do mine.  So I'm doing mine now.  This is a 3 month TUSAL.  May, June and July.....


We have a corner in our yard that has grown up "wild".  Lots of plants and "critters" live here.  It's like it's own Eco-system.  I'll try and name a few of the plants here, but don't know all of them.

Climbing the wall is Honeysuckle and Trumpet Vines.  There is also some Wild Poke to the left.  It has fallen down, but there is still a small piece there.  They are done right done, but some lilies and daffodils are in here also.  The little bird house has nesting English Sparrows.  They raise their babies and they fly away.  As for the trees in the background, they are mostly maple trees, with the exception of the Blue Spruce.  It is over 60 ft. tall and still growing.  But it is getting a little raggedy with age.  Here's another view....
This window is our living room.  When your sitting there you can see everything going on in this Wild Place.  Did I mention there are squirrels and chipmunks roaming around here?  I haven't seen any, but I'm almost sure there are some bunnies living in here.    I'm linking up with Kim over at Little by Little.  Hop over and take a peek at Kim's place.

We have a place out back that we dump our garbage, all the "critters" come to eat this.  Once in a while something pops up in the garbage pile.
Tomatoes...just hoping they get to turn red.  They are kind of tiny now, hoping the frost doesn't get here too early this year. 
There is a Cantaloupe in there too.  It's just now starting to bloom.  Don't think this one will get a full melon on it before frost time.  And of course what's summer without a good roll in the dust.

I finally got the Dot Quilt tied.  Now to finish it off.  What's in the hoop now?  The Christmas Quilt is in the hoop awaiting tying. 
I've also been working on my Red Work baskets.  I just finished block 4.
I've started on block 5.  It has lots of French Knots, so this one is going to take a little time.
I've been thinking about starting a Band Sampler.  Don't know what this is?  Head over to Sharon's place, Pintangle, she has an article about Band Sampler history.  She has a Band Sampler that she's been working on.  You can see her Band Sampler here.  Sharon's Band Sampler is 96 feet 5 inches long, she's been working on it since 2009.  She shows some pictures of the Sampler.
Have you done a Band Sampler?

Who Let the Dog Out? - David Rosenfelt

Product Description(
A lawyer by day, Andy Carpenter's true passion is the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization he runs with his friend Willie Miller. So, it's frightening when there's been a break-in at the foundation building. It turns out that a recently rescued dog, nicknamed Cheyenne since her arrival at the foundation, has been stolen. Andy and Willie track the missing dog to a house in downtown Paterson, NJ and sure enough, they find the dog...right next to a dead body. The man had been murdered mere minutes before Andy and Willie arrived. Could it be coincidence? Or could the dog theft be connected to the killing?
Andy takes Cheyenne safely back to the foundation building. That should be the end of his involvement, but Andy's curiosity - and his desire to keep the dog from further harm - won't let him stop there. The cops have just arrested a man named Tommy Infante for the murder, but as Andy looks into the break-in and the dog theft, he starts to wonder if Infante might actually be innocent. When Andy takes Infante on as a client and starts searching in earnest for evidence that will exonerate him, his discoveries terrify him. The murder might be just one small cog in a plot with far-reaching implications, and unless Andy can uncover the truth in time, thousands of lives could be in imminent danger.

MY THOUGHTS: Even though this is book 13 of the series, I really liked it.  It is a stand alone book and you get all the info on the characters in the book.  This is a lawyer/mystery book.  The main character is Andy Carpenter, he's the lawyer and a rich one.  He doesn't actually have to work, but he usually gets dragged into a case.   This case is all about a dog that gets stolen from the rescue organization that Andy and his wife help support.  This one dog leads to murder, several of them.  There are lots of characters in this book.  My favorite is Heck, he's the muscle of the book.  He doesn't talk much, the only word he says in the whole book is yuh.  I give this book 4....
