My days of late have been filled with writing, sewing, and selling computers at work. This explains why I haven’t posted lately. And…well, I don’t really have readers, so sometimes there’s just no need to post.
Anyway, my latest writing project is a short story for the Detours: Peculiar Places of West Virginia Anthology. The challenge was to take a real place in West Virginia that has a real unusual history, and write a story around the place. So after some researching, I discovered the ‘Insane Mummies’ of Philippi, West Virginia. The history surrounding these two mummies is intriguing. So I made them the center of my story. Anyway, with any luck, after some editing, it might be good enough for this anthology. I really hope so – it’s very cool to write a story set in the same state you live in!
As far as quilting goes, I’ve decided to jump into the world of ‘mug rugs.’ If you don’t know what a mug rug is, let me explain. It is a small coaster like object which is placed under a coffee mug. Sometimes it has a pocket to put your spoon and/or packet of hot cocoa mix or something in it. Sometimes it’s just the ‘rug’ itself. Anyway – Easter is fast approaching, and my little siblings are coming to visit. I wanted to make them something, not as an Easter present, but just…because I love and miss them.
So here’s my first mug rug ever made. ‘Raven’ is my sister’s nickname. Two more to go!
Anyway, I better run for now. Take care!
