So, I have something for Valentine's on my door. It's smallish but does the trick and seems the ladies here at Oakcrossing like it. I've had several positive comments, which is always nice.
Before my sister and her DH went off to sunnier climes for the month we had a family dinner to celebrate (2 weeks early) my great niece's 5th Bday. Of course I was unprepared so did the $ in a card method and suggested she and mommy enjoy some shopping. Well, looks like they did !
I'm told she got some stuffies, including a Unicorn. She looks happy doesn't she !
Glad to see Claire enjoyed her mini shopping spree :). In the meantime I've been keeping busy hand quilting on my Lucy Boston. I'm about 1/3 done, but this week has been a bust as I've had the plaque for the last few days. Hope it's not the dreaded FLU - as that's what I had the last 2 winters, which hospitalized me and put me here @ Oakcrossing. DON'T NEED THAT AGAIN!!
Also been busy reading. Finished off Doris Lessing's Golden Notebook . Can see why it was a sensation when it was first published but not sure it is quite the earthshaker it was when first written. Also polished off The In- Between World of Vikram Lall by M G Vassanji - would definitely recommend this one, and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak also excellent! Can you tell what I've been doing this winter .... lots of reading ;)
