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!
