I can see how people really get hooked on quilting. Such a sense of accomplishment!

Oh, and it doesn't hurt that Jeffrey Donovan is rather easy on the eyes.

When Melody Grace McCartney was six years old, she and her parents witnessed an act of violence so brutal that it changed their lives forever. The federal government lured them into the Witness Protection Program with the promise of safety, and they went gratefully. But the program took Melody's name, her home, her innocence, and, ultimately, her family. She's been May Adams, Karen Smith, Anne Johnson, and countless others--everyone but the one person she longs to be: herself. So when the feds spirit her off to begin yet another new life in another town, she's stunned when a man confronts her and calls her by her real name. Jonathan Bovaro, the mafioso sent to hunt her down, knows her, the real her, and it's a dangerous thrill that Melody can't resist. He's insistent that she's just a pawn in the government's war against the Bovaro family. But can she trust her life and her identity to this vicious stranger whose acts of violence are legendary?
I found Cristofano's writing to be a little corny at times (I think it's because the author is a man but the narrator is a woman...) but it's a fast-paced and compelling story that provides some insight into the always-interesting worlds of the mafia and the witness protection program.
Thanks for letting me borrow it, Marilyn!

I'm kind of impressed by my hand-stitching around the eyes.

Really, I got this lovely new-to-me 2005 Altima.
Sure, it's not as badass as the Titan (or the Challenger, of course), but the gas mileage sure is better! Plus, it has heated leather seats, which will be nice for about four days in Alabama. And just think of all the places I'll be able to park!
She needs a name, no?

I have decided that Luke needs this Kapow! Shirt (or at least he will in 52 days...). It seems to suit his personality. Lucky for me, the fine folks at The Silly Wagon are giving one away! (If I don't win, I'm buying it anyway.) Enter here before June 9 if you'd like a chance to win. They have shirts with numbers 1 to 5, and lots of other cute kids' stuff too.
