I am trying to learn how to use the new Blogger format when writing this post.
Thankfully Barbara from Cat Patches has published some handy tips. Please bear with me if I make some mistakes.
First I would like to share my progress on the Butterfly Baby Blanket. I am about 2/3 done with it. I knit a couple of rows each night.
Isn't it looking great? No, I still don't have a recipient, but I will keep it for the future.
Do you remember these floral arrangements that I made for my daughter's bridal shower last summer? There were two of them.
Well, I finally took them apart and repurposed them into this tobacco basket for my master bathroom.
I have been doing a whole lot of reading as well. Since my last reading update I have finished "The Nightingale" by Kristin Hannah. You can read my impression of it here. I have also finished re-reading "Knit Two" by Kate Jacobs.
I had read this previously, but I want to read the 3rd novel of the series and couldn't remember many of the character details. Since none of the books that I had on hold for my Kindle were available, I decided to read an actual book that I had on hand.
I am now in the middle of "Bellewether" by Susanna Kearsley.
I knew nothing about this book. I was just scrolling through what was available on my Kindle through my library and decided to borrow it. I am thoroughly enjoying this historical/contemporary fiction novel. Supposedly there is a little mystery also. As a bonus it takes place on my home turf of Long Island. There are some references to actual towns around here. Other than "The Great Gatsby" I don't think I have read another book set on Long Island.
Now I have lined up on my Kindle "The Book of Life" by Deborah Harkness that I have been waiting for since March and "A Girl's Guide to Moving On" by Debbie Macomber. The latter I may just have to let lapse once I am done with Bellewether as I really want to read "The Book of Life" that I have been waiting for.
Well that is a little bit of what I have been up to. I think I have figured out most of this new Blogger format.
Thanks for stopping by!
