I was busy prepping my presentation yesterday and some other urgent work, so there was no time to listen to that remaining bit of the page-turner audiobook. So this morning, as I loaded the next customer quilt, I got back to it. But then it's time to get the day started, and I have 17 minutes left. How is that for control?
I'll probably finish while walking the girls this morning. All I can say is the author has a twisted mind. The plot keeps twisting at every page (or so it seems), and I almost feel like I need to go back and reread it. Yikes!! I'll have to get her other books. This is Paula Hawkins. She also wrote The Girl on the Train, which I've read. All I can say is that most of these psychological thrillers relate to twisted family ties. Need I say more!
Thanks to Gwen, who pointed out the "weeding" tool I discovered on one of my GO dies is, in fact -- well, it's a sort of weeder. It's meant to pull the fabric bits out of the dies, making sense. The fabric stuck in the slots on the dies when I used it the other day, and the weeding tool didn't click until Gwen mentioned it.

|WHOA --- who put that tree there?|
|MOM -- I can't find the ball|
|OH - it's in there -- I'll get it|
|Mom -- I'm caught in the bushes - help!|
|Mom -- I won't fall in the pond - I'm very nimble|
|MOM -- I'm exhausted. Let's do it again!|
And then she goes and sits in a muddy spot near the pond, and she is happy!
