Reading instead of Quilting

I got very enthralled in 2 books written by Denise Giardina. The First was Storming Heaven, and the next was The Unquiet Earth. Both are written about the coal mining towns at the turn of the century and up to 1989. I read these because I was very interested in the Mountaintop Removal Valley Fill coal mining that is being done in the Appalachian Mountains. It is a travesty on our beautiful mountains. Ms. Giardina writes in way that keeps you spellbound. I recommend these to everyone.

After I finished these books, I decided to do a quilt on the Sunshine Quilter. Well, I still do not like this machine It is too finicky for me, and I am not a patient person, so it's up for sale, really cheap!!! Wish me luck on selling it. I am going back to my reliable Juki.
