And as for reading, I have found a new cozy mystery series written by Amanda Lee. The first book in the series is The Quick and the Thread. The main character is Jill Singer, who gives up her accounting career in San Francisco to live the dream. She loves needlework and has always wanted to own a needlework shop. She gets her opportunity when her college friend tells Jill about a shop that is for rent in the small town of Tallulah Falls, Oregon. Of course Jill did not count on finding a dead body in her storeroom after the open house she threw to acquaint the citizens of Tallulah Falls with her new business. If you love needlework, you will enjoy this series. I am almost finished with The Quick and the Thread and I have the second book in the series on my bedside table. I love Paperback Book Swap as I found both of these books on that site. If needlework is not your thing but cake decorating is, Ms Lee has a second series that is written under the name of Gayle Trent. The first book in that series is Killer Sweet Tooth. Gayle Trent also has a blog that you might enjoy as well. She shares lots of pictures of pretty cakes and cross stitch patterns there. I may add her blog to my blogroll!
Well it is a rainy day here, I am doing laundry and I will probably take up my stitching again. I am looking forward to a visit from Miss Margaret. She is going to come and stay with Nana and Grandpa until Wednesday. I doubt I will get any stitching done while she is here!!
