Weekly Dose of Serenity

Wow, It's been a long time since I've had the chance to blog! I really need to get better at this - LOL. As the title of this post suggests, I thought I'd start posting pictures of what I consider my Dose of Serenity. I'm not a well seasoned traveller but I consider the place we went in the Bahamas as the most Serene place in the world. Just can't get the place off my mind so I hope you enjoy seeing our trip pictures in the upcoming weeks.

The second picture is of the Biscornu I received from Karen in AZ. Her stitching is superior! I love the button she selected to finish it off - matches the fiber just perfectly. I can't wait to use the fiber and fabby she sent along with her package too.

I haven't been stitching much lately. The third picture shows the progress of Rites of Spring which I haven't stitched on for about a week.

I have to blame it on my love for reading! I go through spells when I can't seem to put a book down. Right now I'm reading a series of books by Larry McMurtry call The Berrybender Narratives. There are 4 books in the series and I just finished book 2 while lounging in the pool this afternoon. They are title Book 1 - Sin Killer; Book 2 - The Wandering Hill; Book 3 - By Sorrow's River; and Book 4 - Folly & Glory. It's a story of a wealthy English family who travel to the New World during the 1830's. They encounter all kinds of characters along the way. I guess they would be consider Western Fiction. If you have similar tastes in reading material I would highly recommend this series.

Well I hope I don't stay away too long next time! I'm going to try and get in some stitching time this afternoon, hopefully the temptation of Book 3 of the Berrybender adventure dosen't distract me!

Thanks to all of you who enjoy reading my blog! Until next time!

Hiyas honey -- lounging by the pool? What are you trying to do? Torment me? lol

Congrats on Rites, it's looking good. And the biscornu... well, I'd say you were pretty lucky there :)

How's it going Ruth! You know I've got to take advantage of the pool before it gets too hot to even think about it. It's almost there already. My pool water was 86 deg this weekend - not as cool as it would like when it's 90 deg out.

wow, what a pretty site, all that water and the sail boat :)

great exchange from Karen .. almost as nice as what I received from you *grin*

I have the same problem .. a good book in my hands means no needle :(
