My friend Kelli had a reading at Changing Hands Bookstore recently.

She wrote a novel and self published it.  The setting is Mozambique and a western city, two places I know.  It was fun being there for her first official book reading ans signing.

Quilt and Pillow Set

The pretty thing is done.  It is now in the hands of a mama who will gift it to her daughter later today.

The front  (above).  And the back (below).

The back has a single stripe of squares for texture.
