Quilting and listening
This week as I quilted I've been listening to various readings and dramatizations from BBC radio. First up (and my favorite thus far) was a dramatization of Paul Gallico's The Snow Goose. It's only an hour long, but so good.
Of course, I had more than one hour's worth of quilting so I checked out BBC 7 and listened to Alan Bennett read The House at Pooh Corner until I ran out of episodes. Then I heard Prunella Scales read E. Nesbit's Last of the Dragons. Still more quilting to do, so I began listening to a dramatization of The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff, which is a book I own, and have assigned to my children to read, but which I have never read.
Today I will begin putting on the quilt's binding while listening to another episode in each of the three books already mentioned, and I think I will add to the mix Agatha Christie's Murder in Mesopotamia.
