Treasures in the Trunk: Quilts of the Oregon Trail by Mary Bywater Cross
Treasures in the Trunk: Quilts of the Oregon Trail

Judy Ann, March 4, 2009

After reading about the quilts made by those who had migrated to the West, I began to really get a feel for the women who came the West on the Oregon Trail. This isn't a story, but the description of the quilts and of the women who made them, which brings the past to life.

Treasures in the Trunk: Quilts of the Oregon Trail

Judy Ann, July 7, 2008

Anyone who loves quilts and the traditions associated with them will enjoy this book. While not written in a novel form, you quickly begin to see something of the women who made the quilts. If, like me, you had a great-great gramma who came to Oregon in a covered wagon, you will want to read this.

Knitting Without Tears: Basic Techniques and Easy-To-Follow Directions for Garments to Fit All Sizes by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Knitting Without Tears: Basic Techniques and Easy-To-Follow Directions for Garments to Fit All Sizes

Judy Ann, April 23, 2007

This is a delightful book to read, but even more, a very helpful guide to knitting. Ms. Zimmermann is witty and relaxed about knitting. She passes on things she has learned, which can be applied to life as well as knitting. Totally worth the price even if you buy it new!

Bubbles in Trouble (Bubbles Books) by Sarah Strohmeyer
Bubbles in Trouble (Bubbles Books)

Judy Ann, March 17, 2007

Bubbles in Amish country? It is as funny as the first and will keep you guessing to the end. The Bubbles series is high quality mind candy.
