Bones Never Lie - Audio Book review

Bones Never Lie by Kathy Reichs                     Read by Kathern Borowitz

Kathy Reichs has written 16 books featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan.

When I saw the name Temperance Brennan I immediately though this book would be about the TV person Bones.  It is and then again it isn't because the book character works both in Canada and South Carolina and she even watched an episode of Bones on TV. 

I enjoyed this book, and her portrayal of different personalities in different jurisdictions  struggling to work together to find a killer.

Christmas project - pipped pillow

 This is a pillow that I made for a client,  actually I made 6 of these pillows.    The pillows  have zipper openings on the bottom  which took a bit longer and is more difficult when using piping.   I was happy that the zippers were almost invisible but I focused on the stripe matching and zipper insertion so much that I didn't cut the fabric to avoid dog ears.  The client was however very happy with the look.

The stocking are small,  the white part is only about 1-1/2 tall by 4"  so I was not able to hoop them.  I embroidered the names on wool felt which embroidered beautifully.  I then cut around the names and sewed them on the stockings.  I did 40 stocking all together and  think they turned out really cute.

lots more stockings!
