Yarn Along

Books and yarn, two items that are part of my two favorite hobbies.  I am joining in on Yarn Along - hosted over at Small Thiongs.  This week I am still reading Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia Macneal.  It's a really good book, I've just been a bit short on time.  The book is getting to a point where I'm not willing to put it down, though.

I am crocheting a cowl for a friend.  It's been in the 70's here this week - so it feels a bit odd crocheting something meant to keep one warm.  I know winter isn't over though, so it'll be nice for my friend to have - I hope, anyway.

Yarn Along

Yarn Along is a weekly event hosted at Small Things.  The idea is to share what you are currently reading and knitting or crocheting.

This week, I am reading a book called Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia Macneal.  It is about a woman who is asked to be one of Winston Churchill's secretaries during World War 2 in London.  I've just begun the book but it is really intriguing so far.  Although, I do love Historical Fiction and most anything set in England.

I am crocheting a Granny Patchwork Afghan that I am going to be working on for some time.  It's really lovely so far and I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Yarn Along

Yarn Along is a weekly event hosted at Small Things.  The idea is to share what you are currently reading and knitting or crocheting.  This is right up my alley as I am never not reading something! I have been a bookworm since childhood and imagine I always be.

I have been crocheting the most adorable little hearts to make a garland for my daughters' bedroom.  Once they saw how cute the hearts are, they both asked for Valentine garland for their school classrooms.  In the picture, you see some of the hearts that will hang in their room. 

You also see my current book, A Perfect Storm.  This is the fourth book in a series by Lori Foster.  It is romantic suspense and quite a good series.

Crocheted Wrap

Here is another birthday present I made in January.  This one is a shoulder wrap for my mother-in-law.  My daughter, Miss O, is the adorable model:
