Quilt Recipes

Good morning, Comanche folks!  As winter has decided to throw us some more cold weather, I thought I'd do a book review in case you plan to curl up and enjoy a good read.  Here's a book that will help quilters find enjoyment during those cold days: Quilt Recipes by Jen Kingwell (746.46 KIN) has some beautiful quilt patterns.  When you get quilter's block (pun intended), just look toward the back for some yummy baking recipes. Whip up some Tasty Ginger Biscuits or Delightful Powder Puffs and sit down to have a taste with a cup of hot tea.  Now that sounds lovely!  Are you dreaming of Spring and gardening? Check out Will Bonsall's Essential Guide to Radical, Self-Reliant Gardening (635 BON).  It has innovative techniques for growing veggies, grains, and perennial food crops.  If you are looking for something to make your younger family members crow, try Acoustic Rooster's Barnyard Boogie Starring Indigo Blume (E ALE).  This is an easy reader in which Indigo falls asleep on the night before she is scheduled to sing at a festival and finds herself in a dreamworld with the characters from her favorite book, Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band.  They are rehearsing when a storm destroys their barn. Can Indigo rally the band to work together to save their home?  Can they help her find her voice in time for the festival?  With the revived interest in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, I thought it prudent to add that to our Young Adult collection, though adults will enjoy it as well.  According to USA Today, Wheel of Time is one of fantasy's most acclaimed series, and this 30th anniversary edition has a foreword by Brandon Sanderson, who used the author's copious notes to finish writing this epic series after Robert Jordan passed away before completing the last books.  Rand al'Thor is cold.  Though the spring festival is tomorrow, it is a year without spring.  It is a year of strangers, of a lady, a gleeman and a peddler.  It is a year of war and the rising of a false dragon...and they want a boy on the brink of manhood, born within a certain span of months.  They want Rand.  Or do they?  If you like fantasy, and you like Tolkien, come on in to check out The Eye of the World (YA JOR #1 Wheel Of Time) and we'll see you at the library!
