Bible Sampler Block 35

 This week's story is called the Queen's Visit:

It is from I Kings 16:1-2 & 6-9.  This is the story of the visit of the Queen of Sheba to Solomon and his Court.  We don't know for sure where she came from or who she was, but she was wealthy, but even her wealth was small when compared to the glories of Solomon's court and she was amazed at his wisdom and power.

The name of the block is Queen's Treasure.

Bible Sampler Block 34


Block 34 is called King David's Crown.  It is from 2 Samuel 12:26-30.  This block was partially paper-pieced and partially precision pieced - not quite as simple as it looks.  The block name is also King David's Crown.

April Book List

 Today is the day for the listing of the books I read in April.  14 books seems like a lot - must have been a boring, dismal time.

All the Colors of the Night by Jayne Ann Krantz  - the second book in her Fogg Lake series - fun read.

 Fellowship of Fear by Aaron Ellkins This is the first adventure of Gideon Oliver - the Skeleton Detective.  Great stories 

In the Balance by Patricia Wentworth.  This is the 4th book in the Miss Silvers series.  Written in the 30's through the 50's they are wonderful mysteries with a touch of romance.

Trouble in the Town Hall  by Jeanne M. Dame  Continuation of the story of an American resettled in England and she's found another body.  Just a fun read.

Something the Cat Dragged In Charlotte McCloud - the fourth book in the Peter Shanty series.  A fun, funny read.

The Dark Place by Aaron Elkins  The 2nd book in the Dr Oliver series.

Saltwater Cove by Amelia Addler  This book made no lasting impression on me so I will probably not be reading anymore in the series.

Eye of the beholder by Jayne Ann Krantz  Another of her mystery, fantasy, romance adventures.  Always a fun read.

Divine Wedding by Hope Callaghan  Book 7 in the Divine Cozy Mystery series.  Great Stories about people at a half-way farm getting their lives back together.

Murder at High Tide by Lee Strauss  First book in the Rosa Ross Series.  Set in 1956 Southern California.  Not highly impressed and probably will not continue to read the series.

A Bias for Murder by Sally Goldblum  I've read several in this series and have decided there are more fun and/or interesting books out there for me.

Deep Blue Surrender by Robin Mahle   A story about a middle aged woman starting over again in life as a private detective.  

The Tombs by Clive Cussler - #4 in the Fargo series.  High adventure, exotic places and an  ALMOST believable story line are all the hallmarks of a Cussler adventure - I love them.

Chocolate Hearts & Murder by Patti Larson  #2 in her B & B Series.  Not as good as the first entry, but enough that I may try the third.
