Ghost Moon by Karen Robards

Ghost Moon Ghost Moon by Karen Robards

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a great book! This is the 2nd book I've read by Karen Robards and it was great. Kept you guessing til (almost) the end, and from then on it was action-packed. I can't wait to read some more by her!

Some of the ornament kits..

Here are some of the ornaments I've stitched for my MIL. I haven't assembled any of them yet because I'm trying to get them all stitched before she visits at the end of the month. :)

An angel or a mistake??

Something very strange happened today- it is too good to be true really. I got a notice in the mail from a company we have a loan with that a phone payment for a rather large amount had been authorized. I was freaking out because I didn't authorize the payment. I called the loan place straight away and she said "an older man" called a few days ago and wanted to make two payments on our account. She said we are the only people on their books with our last name. I have called almost everyone I can think of that could have possibly done it, and everyone says they didn't (and seem honest about it.) It's so strange! I am nervous it was all a big mistake. I guess I may never know! What a blessing if it isn't!

New Stash!!

I finally made it out to Lazy Daizy in Raleigh- I LOVE that store!! I got there 20 min. before they closed and picked up a few things. Sadly, they are no longer carrying The Sampler Girl's designs, which I was hoping they would have, but I did get the last one they did have, which happened to be one I wanted! So here is a pic I of what I got- if you can't see it well it is In the Kitchen With Jane Austen by the Sampler Girl, Cecilia 1896 by Lisa Cowell, Serenity Waits by Plum Pudding Needle Art, Shell Gatherer by Liz Navickas Designs, a skein of Gentle Art Buttermilk (needed for the Jane Austen pattern- I didn't think I had any but found later that I do. oops), and a skein of now-retired Weeks Dye Works Butterscotch. I also got a Pine Mountain Pillow kit for Hanna that's not pictured here. It was half off. Hooray!

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,...
