Okay, right now I seem to have too much of everything lined up.
On top of the 3 cross-stitch projects, knitted vest and crocheted Granny Squares, I have now started a crocheted bookmark.
I started it two days ago. You would think it would be finished by now. I seem to have an aversion to finishing my WIPs right now. I am slowly working on Mom's vest.
I still haven't finished the ribbing. I think it is time for me to start concentrating on just one project and finish it.
I am similarly flush with reading material.
One of the staff members at the school where I worked brought in several shopping bags full of books that she was clearing out of her house. I took a few for some summer reading. Sorry about the blurry picture.
I finally finished The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I so wanted to like this oft-recommended book, but I just didn't. As I said before, there wasn't a single likable character in this book. Nobody to root for, nobody to feel sad or happy about. As for it being a gripping thriller, I just didn't think so. I slogged through this book. Some fellow bloggers told me there was a twist at the end. I figured it out. I can now say that I read this book, but i wouldn't recommend it.
I have also finished The True Love Quilting Club by Lori Wilde. This is a romance novel that I realized early on I had read previously. Never mind, after The Girl on the Train I needed something really light and easy to read.
This is a heartwarming story with likable characters that is the perfect summer read.
Now I have to decide whether to read one of the books in the pile pictured above or this:
My daughter gave me this book for Christmas and I think this will be up next.
I am joining Ginny for Yarn Along today. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.
Thanks for stopping by!
