Old Hobby Rediscovered

Recently I have been rediscovering my creative side and this has led me back to cross stitch. I have a pattern which I purchased back in 2014 and never really got very far. I picked it up again a few weeks ago and I am still in love with colors and the sentiment. So here is what it looks like now. I can’t wait to get it finished and framed. When finished it will say “Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy”. Hope you enjoy.

Well Hello…

I know it’s been a while since I posted anything and I completely missed this past week’s book releases. Life just got in the way. Anyway, it’s fall now in North Dakota and the new construction that took place over the summer behind us seems to have scared off my jackrabbit friends.😪 I haven’t been doing as much reading lately but I hope to get in some good time this weekend. A couple of weeks ago I shared with you a diamond painting I was working on and I am pleased to announce that it is finished, though not yet framed. Hope you all are doing well.

New Hobby

I have recently been distracted by Diamond Painting. I know, how dare I let anything come between me and my book. But there it is, and I just wanted to show off what I’m working on. I haven’t completely abandoned my books though. I am currently reading “The Long Call”, first in a new series from Ann Cleeve. It releases on 9/3 here in the US and I hope to get my review up this weekend.

Happy Reading!
