I don't usually participate in stitch-a-longs or quilt-a-longs or blocks of the month because I typically have too many other projects going, but this year felt a bit different with more at home time and need for hand projects for zoom meetings than usual. At the beginning of the summer Mollie Johanson of Wild Olive announced a summer reading and stitching club, and since I'd recently finished my embroidered Prayer Book cover, small stitching projects sounded appealing! Every week for 12 weeks Mollie sent out a new embroidery pattern designed to be stitched onto small book shaped English Paper Pieces blocks. When finished, the blocks were designed to assemble into a book bag. Each pattern was inspired by a childhood classic and I thought it would be a fun chance to revisit old favorites and maybe find new ones.
Of the twelve books selected, I'd previously read (and in some cases re-read and re-read) ten. There were two that were new to me, The Borrowers and All of a Kind Family. I checked out the All of a Kind Family books (it's a series of about 5) and read them all, they really are a ton of fun. The library didn't have audiobooks of the Borrowers so I'm still waiting to read those.
