A finished bookmark!

I can post this now because I gave it to my friend Lauri tonight. :) The design is from the Leisure Arts book "Quick as a Wink."

Watch Me (Last Stand trilogy #3) Watch Me by Brenda Novak

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the first of this trilogy that I've read, though it's the most recent book. It was really good, kept you guessing as to "whodunit" which is always a good thing! I plan on reading the other two, and probably the fourth that comes out later this year, though the crime committed in that one looks particularly disturbing.

My heart aches for some stash...

Cross stitch stash that is! It has been much too long since I bought anything new. I was just looking at, one of my favorite online stores at some of the new items. Sigh..... And there are some Sampler Girl designs I want too. I hope I will have a little tax money left after bill paying to buy some new things or I just might cry!

Islands Islands by Anne Rivers Siddons

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a really good book. Although not a real page-turner, it kept you engrossed enough to keep wondering what would happen next. I do like a book once in a while that is entertaining to read but I can put down if I need to. The chapters were very long though which made it hard to find a stopping point! Overall I enjoyed the book and was somewhat surprised by the ending, which is almost always a good thing. :)

Finally I have finished something! An ornament kit my mother-in-law wanted me to stitch for her, and San Man Originals' "Bless the Feast."

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
