|April began with the arrival of two Godey's Lady's Books|
Godey's Lady's Books, discovered by my mother in Maine. Mom runs a community tag sale every other year, and sometimes the most interesting things walk through the doors. She contributed $5 apiece for these two books, and when I told her they might be valuable, she said maybe she should put in another $5 for each. What a riot!
A new quilt by Lori DeJarnatt arrived around the same time. The quilt came from the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, and Lori had made it after a difficult period with her mother, who has Alzheimer's. The quilt is called "No Rhyme or Reason" and it's one of the things that inspired me to try making quilts.
Could my first experiments making quilts be the reason why so many people visited my blog in April? I wish! The blog entry I wrote about my first completed quilt had the most views of the posts I wrote about making quilts, and it was only #5 on the list for the month.

So, now that we're into May already, there's a new Quilt of the Month on my web site. This month's quilt is called "Wild Thing" and I've blogged about it here in the past, so it's a flashback. If you're a fan of The Troggs, make sure to click the link to hear their famous party anthem while looking at the quilt. Enjoy!
