New Books In The Mail

Look what came in yesterday’s mail?

Books

And Stephen Kinzer’s THE BROTHERS, about the Allan and Foster Dulles, rolled in a day later.

I’ve never read Donna Tartt’s work, but listened to a really great review about this author and this novel.  It’s a big sprawling thing.

And, Jill Lepore’s work on Jane Franklin is also all over the media and is being reviewed really well.  I love it when women’s voices from the past get reclaimed and surfaced.

It’s going to be a good winter of reading.

Turkey Tracks: Jo Diggs Visits Coastal Quilters

Jo Diggs Visits Coastal Quilters

Jo Diggs, of Portland, Maine, visited Coastal Quilters for our November 9th meeting.

We are so lucky to have so many nationally recognized quilters here in Maine, and Jo Diggs is a bright star among that number.   To top it off, Jo is funny, clever, gracious–a lovely, lovely lady.

Here she is (grey sweater) talking to our members after her trunk show.

CQ, Jo Diggs, Nov 2013

I took LOTS of pictures.  But my little camera just didn’t do justice to her work.  So, I’ve posted a link to her blog where you can enjoy really good pictures of her work.  So, take a minute and take yourself on a little art outing.  Jo’s work is applique, and she does large and small art pieces–though in the future, she says, she is going to concentrate on large pieces.

Gallery.

ENJOY!
