I could baste a quilt!
And so I did.
I listened to an audiobook while I scrambled around on the floor, taping and smoothing, and poking in my pins. This is a Hands2Help donation quilt, by the way.
I'm on the second to the last in the eight-book Outlander series, An Echo in the Bone, and I'm maybe two-thirds of the way through the book. Hard to tell with Audible, or at least I don't pay particular attention to how far along I am.
It's been kind of like the story that never ends, partly because I'm a take-my-sweet-time kind of reader/listener (quilter/blogger) with a tendency to distract myself on other things. Each audiobook is well over 40 hours of narration (actually, two of them were over 55 hours), but that's okay with me because I'm enjoying the ride. Thanks, Sarah, for giving me the heads up on Outlander a couple years ago!
I binge-watched (twice, in fact) the first eight episodes, which came out on Blu-ray on March 6. The next season starts tomorrow night on Starz, but since we don't get the Starz channel, I'll have to wait a few months until those episodes come out on DVD/Blu-ray to get my next fix. Meanwhile, I'll finish the book series.

The scenery is wonderful, the costumes divine. So you could say that's been a slight distraction.
Back to reality, though. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!
