The Great Escape

sputnik on the windowsill

Summer mornings in central California mean cool breezes with lots of sunshine.  Sputnik usually escapes to her lookout on the windowsill.

Hubby has been reading "The Great Escape" by Paul Brickhill.   Lately, I've been wanting to escape into another world by reading a book at night, and I found the incentive to do so.  While in the Etsy forums today, I learned about a book club that just started.   The idea is to create a piece based on a book that members have read, then upload the artwork to the Flickr group.   For more information, visit The Crafty Book Club blog.

What is your favorite way to escape into another world?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sputnik looks so cute, seems like she is saying "and what are you looking at?". The book club sounds great, I just might be too busy right now to put any more on my plate.

I forgot to add on the post.

I believe we'll have two months to read the book and create an art piece inspired by our reading.

Marlene, I know what you mean about having so much we want to do but not enough time.

That is a beautiful photo of your cat. Love the reflection as well as the angle.

I love this picture of Sputnik. Looks like she is making for the great escape and was caught in the act.

What a cute cat..I know I said this before..but he is beautiful.
I can not stand it when I finish a good book..it is hard to get started in another..My father use to tell me.."A good book is like a good friend"..
so true..
How are things? Hope all is well..keeping you all in my thoughts..
