New Blues for what I think will be a blue
Also my grey mink shawl (a little more done) and new white wash cloth
(up top of the picture they are)...
I hope to go a bit of a ways by train soon and will be
bringing the blue yarn to use on the trip!
My husband was talking the other week about how when he was in
grad school he would listen to books read on the radio
as well as classes.
He's always been a huge nerd that way and it makes
me fall in love with him at the past years in his life,
though I did not know him at the time.
One of the books he listened to was
He told me that it was about a boy
who blurts out his suspicion that his older brother's
new wife is cheating on him.
It leads to the death of his brother and his brother's new wife
and the boy ends up raising the kids and getting involved
in a fairly fundamentalist, if a bit cooky, church.
I read it the week my husband was away for work
and wow, that first part was hard reading.
But then, I loved it.
The author really loves her characters,
there is a lot of redemption in the book,
a lot of growing in humility, love and mercy.
In other parts of creative life,
yesterday I made a cheesecake
and last week I used a sewing machine for the first time
in at least 28 years.
My friend whose machine I was using helped a lot
and it felt momentous! :)
I did a fairly strait line!
I hope to get into sewing more after Easter,
as I have a lot of things to do between now and then!
What are you making and reading?
