A Single Thread

Want a good read? I highly recommend A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick. It's like attending a quilting bee with all of your best friends. This is a novel populated with people you know: the quilt shop owner, the older friend with the crusty exterior, the young novice quilter, the unemployed marketing manager. As they gather together, you will feel like you are right there with them sharing theirs fears, anger, sorrow and triumphs. Be sure to read this one.

  2. Actually, it does sound cute. And it reminded me of something that was so funny. At the Gee's Bend lecture in Sisters, Florine Smith, sitting on the far left, stole our attention (and the show) by repeatedly picking at a supposed thread on her clothing! It was hilarious because every single quilter in the room could relate! And it only goes to show what a difference 'a single thread' can make!

  8. I saw this suggestion on your blog and checked "A Single Thread" out of the library. It was so good, I then read A Thread of Truth, and hope to find another one soon. Thanks, carline
