The only thing I knew about Charles LINDBERG was that he made a daring solo flight from New York to Paris in a plane called Spirit of St.Louis. I knew nothing of his life, even that he had a wife. But this read proved very very riveting, and to quote the Authors note at the end ....
"Judge a good book by the research you do after reading".
I now know a lot more about Charles and Anne Morrow LINDBERG, and I have on my Waiting to Read List..Biographer A.Scot Berg's book.
PURPLE ..... one of my favourite colours is purple. This is a cuddle quilt I made for Middle Son's Wife.
CITY..... being a pommie born Aussie I guess my choice of city should be London. But no I have chosen LUXEMBURG.
No actual photo. But when I was a kid and growing up in Northampton, I had to share a bedroom with my sister. She was 9 years older than I, hence makeup boys, teenage thing long before I was. But I remember vividly when she started working, she bought herself a small (well smallish for the 1950's) radio and she would list to this strange (to me) music at night. Not being into pop music then or now particuarly, I had to swear on my heart not to tell the Parents. I think she may have bribed me as well. Maybe that was why she gave me one shilling pocket money each week. To make sure I kept quiet. I don't think the Parents ever found out.
and last but by no means least
This is a cuddle LAP quilt made with LOVE
for my dear cister in England. No I haven't spelt it wrong but she is not a blood sister but a cousin and CHOSEN sister. The only contact I now have with the Land of my Birth.
This was made a few years ago.
so this year I thought she needed a new one and using fabrics from my "Holy Stash" I made this one for her birthday.
and for next time The Terrible Cinzia has chosen
The letter V
