Words and Wool
Here I am sitting on the floor in the kitchen during Potty Camp. Cousin John and Laura have been attending "Potty Camp" each morning this week. John is a star pupil. Laura, it has been decided, is not ready for potty training yet. This is sad news since I have a very pressing use for the diaper budget money. It looks like I'll be finding another creative solution other than the diaper money.......
Here and there I get time to continue work on my crochet afghan. I do love the colors and the crochet is very soothing. I finished another little knitting project this week but the photo will have to wait to be revealed at a later date. I'm still working on the white shawl as I find a chance.
Rachel is hard at work on her knitting for 4H as well as her embroidered Lord of the Rings quilt.
In the reading world I have begun a new author. Have any of you read Rosamunde Pilcher before? A friend recommended her to me and loaned me several books.
Coming Home is the book I have begun with. I was initially leery of beginning a 700-page book but am already 10% of the way through. Coming Home is set in England beginning in the 1930's and right now the book is about a young girl left in England at boarding school while her parents are working in India. I'm loving the book so far with its cozy descriptions of England and little things that make me feel at home in the story. Hopefully I'll just keep on loving it!
Do let me know if you have read any of her books or which ones you recommend. Thanks!
