I’ve still had time to do a little stitching, even though we have been rushing between Otaki and Levin for weeks now, checking up on our house building, and making all sorts of arrangements. I’m working away on a (free download) Red Brolly stitchery design and it’s coming along slowly. Mind you, with all this hot weather lately, I don’t always feel like doing much stitching in these warm temperatures.
I always have a book in my hands, no matter the weather. As a new member of the rather grand, brand new Levin library, I’ve been there several times to check out some reading matter. I’ve just finished reading one of Jennifer Chiaverini’s Elm Creek Quilts novels. Most of the series I’d read previously, but found “The Wedding Quilt” tucked away on the shelves. Each chapter traces the history of individual characters of Elm Creek, but the actual wedding quilt doesn’t make an appearance till the final chapter. A good easy read, and makes a change from the “serial killer” type of books I usually devour late into the night.
