2022 Monthly Book Challenge
This year we would like to invite you to join us in a monthly reading challenge.
We love to read…almost as much as we love to sew, quilt, and bake….so what would be better than having a monthly reading challenge to go along with our usual quilting and recipes?
Here’s how it is going to work:
- Each month we will post a challenge topic along with book suggestions.
- Then, each month, we will post again with recipes and patterns that are pair perfectly with the book suggestions.
- And then…..if you’d like, you can join us over on “The Stash” for more conversations about the books, the patterns, the recipes, etc.
Oh my gosh! This is going to be so much fun!!!
We have been talking about this for what feels like an eternity and this is the year to finally get it started…heaven knows after these last two years we could all use something new, lovely, excitng, relaxing, enjoyable, agreeable, etc. etc. etc. to revitalize us right?
Soooo….let’s get started!
Here is a sneak peek at the monthly topics:
(And keep your eyes peeled for a new post coming in a day or two all about the January Challenge!)
