Words Update

I was surprised when I realized how long it had been since I last posted. I will post a "needles" update later, but here is the "words" portion of the blog.

Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling, which I have not yet read. This may be my Christmas vacation read .

Mary Russell's War by Laurie R. King which I really enjoyed reading. This is a compilation of stories that Laurie has written over the years and posted/sold on her website.

Harry Potter And The Curse Child by J. K. Rowling which I loved reading. The took about 10 minutes of reading to adjust to the script layout of the book, but the story was amazing and added some cool details and insight into this world.

Thanks for still being here,

Catch Up

My life became a little crazy in November and then threw me into a wall in December....but is now calming down.
In November I found and purchased my first home. I found a little townhouse and moved in mid-November. Around the first of December I became extremely ill with a "possible" diagnosis of diverticulitis, which was officially confirmed the first of this month and was finally given instsructions/guidelines on how to heal and proceed from here.
Moving on to the fun stuff....I picked up a few Prairie Schooler patterns:

Very excited about these patterns!

And (drum roll, please) I have two stitching finishes...
