Wanna Get Lucky?
by deborah coonts
Lucky O’Toole; could you pick a better character name for a murder mystery set in Las Vegas? Probably not, especially when that character is as strong-minded,
energetic and eclectic as Lucky. Former
Aviation for Women columnist Deb Coonts' sense of
humor shines in this rollicking romp through
the back halls of a showcase Las Vegas casino
in her first book of a series.
Be sure when you pick this book up that
you’ve got a little time, because you won’t put it
down until you are done. And when you do finish this page-turner, get ready for installment number 2, Lucky Stiff, which will be
on bookshelves in February. February will also find Coonts in Reno at the Authors'
Table in the Exhibit Hall at the WAI Conference. — A.L.
Several years ago one of our columnists
mentioned making a quilt out of aviation
t-shirts and keeping it in her airplane.
i thought it sounded like a good
way to deal with an
old t-shirt collection (we all have
them) but couldn’t
my time learning how
to quilt just to use up
Problem solved! the
people at the campus Quilt
company in kentucky have made a business out of turning old fabric memorabilia
into well-made, sturdy, custom quilts and
pillows, with big 15-inch squares. i wouldn’t
have thought these quilts would look as
good as they do until i saw one, and even
slept under it in a guest room. they are so
well made you almost forget they are made
from old shirts. you can choose to use the
front or back of the shirt, or both. the people at campus Quilt make it very easy to
pull it all together. you send in a deposit and
they send you a mailing kit with everything
you need to package up your shirts, including a pre-paid return envelope. you can
place your order on line, www.ca
mpus-quilt.com, or by phone, (502) 968-2850.
Go to their web site and check out all
the options. what a great way to clear out
a cluttered closet and have something to
show off in return. —Nancy Bink
