Knitting and Stitching.....

I just finished stitching two new "models" for my friend Joanne's cross-stitch business. As soon as she has them available for sale, I will show you pictures!! I'm also knitting quite a bit - I'm making some dishcloths for my sister as Christmas gifts. She really likes using them to wash dishes. Since I don't care to use them for dishes, but like to use them in the shower, I'm also knitting some for me too! I'm still working on my shawl that I recently showed you a photo of. And...I'm making a cabled scarf for me in a lovely shade of orange. I never cared for the color orange before until I started knitting years ago. Now, I find myself drawn to it when I'm out and about shopping - especially for yarn!

Re-reading Old Favorites...

I'm a big fan of re-reading old favorites of mine. I have them sitting on my "keeper" shelves - and from time to time will pull one out and read it again - for the third time, or the fourth time, or..... Some of them I re-read every year. Yes, every year. One of them is "Be Buried in the Rain" by Barbara Michaels. This copy was given to me by a friend and is a mass-market sized hardback. I love it... It fits so sweetly into my hands. The story takes place in Virginia (my state), over a hot, humid summer.... Hmmm, sounds like real life for me.. Oh, that's right! It is real life - LOL!
There is a big old house, a ghost, some old bones, and a dog named Elvis. What more could you want!
