I'm still kickin'

What do you know, this post isn't about a giveaway (well, a new one anyway). Actually, I felt the urge to post, even though I have nothing much to post about.

I have been sewing today. I'm making a twin sized quilt for my son. It is Wall-E and Cars themed. I have finished sewing the blocks together. The next step is to find some fabric for the backing and a border around the front. I also will be needing some batting and some yarn to tie it. It will be super cute when it's done. I'll post pictures too, when all is finished.

I am still trying to catch up on my library books. I have quite a few checked out right now, and I haven't been making myself read as much. Bad girl! I have finished City of Glass by Cassandra Clare, and Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I have yet to get my reviews written though. I read Little Women for my Classics Challenge. Yippee! The book I am currently reading is Strawberry Shortcake Murder by Joanne Fluke. So far our victim has died. Now to find out how, who, and why.

Entering giveaways paid off for me this week. I won two ARCs from The Bluestocking Society. They arrived in the mail today. Oh the joy! They are titled Rainy Day Rescue by Inda Schaenen and The Quarter Horse Foal by Inda Schaenen. They are part of the Saddle Wise series.

The other giveaway was given by The Epic Rat. It was her Wicked giveaway, and I chose to receive a Wicked Green Elixir Bottle. I think that's the one, but her link wasn't working. That's the only bottle on the site that I could see. Pretty darn cool, right? Hm, maybe I'll take a picture of it when it comes. Woohoo, like I said, I love me some giveaways.

I guess that pretty much wraps it up. Now for a haiku.

Amy, you lazy!
Get to your books, they miss you!
Delay your blogging.
