Looong Weekend

It was the end-of-the-summer weekend in the US, and I was glad to have three days off, since I've been working six days a week much of the summer. I had a list a mile long, and was delighted to be able to check many of the items off the list. Brunch and dinners with friends, a lot of errands and chores done and HGTV Design Star Marathon today.

I went to the Book Thing and among other books, got a copy of What Remains by Carole Radziwill. Most of the reviews I've read have been mixed, but leaning towards good. I think this will be one of those books that I have to be in the right frame of mind to read. It's going to be devistatingly sad with the deaths of John Kennedy and his cousin Anthony Radziwill two weeks apart. Continuing on sort of a Kennedy-family theme, I got P.S., an autibiography of Pierre Salinger who was witness to many of the century's most fascinating moments. On Saturday morning, I did a bit of flea marketing, stopping by the Station North Saturday market. For you Baltimore types, it's the first Saturday of the month, and is in the parking lots across from the Charles Theatre. I picked up about five yards of Manuel Canovas fabric for $.50/yard, considerably less than the retail price. It's an old pattern, Bienaimee', but the gorgeoushot pink flowers and blue and white ginger jar design hooked me. Now all I need to do is figure out what to do with this!

I also got some small stretcher frames for a fun project I am working on. Earlier this summer, I learned how to print directly onto fabric from my inkjet printer. It involves freezer paper, an iron and some fabric... Here's how. The print detail is incredible, and so I am printing out some digital pictures and then putting the canvas on stretcher frames.

I always find September to be a bit melancholy, heading down the slippery slope towards winter. I've got a lot going on in the next few weeks, so maybe that will distract me!

  4. I read that book in a day or two, couldn't put it down. It is written so well, the subject matter is fascinating, I just loved the whole thing, sad and tortured as it is. You'll love it.

  6. You will like the book. It's hard at times, but Anthony insisted on living while he was alive, let's just say. She lost so much, so fast. It's a good read.

  8. I hope you liked the book.....I really loved it and have been looking for her byline ever since. It must have been horrible losing her closest friends and family almost simultaneously. She made the Kennedys human to me, and I hope for the best for her.
