It is the first day of Summer here today and it is raining. Thank you all so much for your kind words and advice regarding my knitting. The frustration will pass, but I will definitely do what I can to make the owner aware of the issue. I have to say though, I am pretty proud of my cables.
This morning I finished up the first trifold piece of my Queen of the Needle case. This is the part that folds over on the front. I only have a few beads to attach on here, but those will wait until the end, so that I don’t snag them. I love all the colors in this piece and the fun specialty stitches that Nan has included. Next I will be stitching the part that will be the back of the case, so it will be upside down from this piece.
I didn’t stitch at all last night when I got home because I wanted to finish reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It was so good re-reading it. I think the first time I read books five and six there were so many people around me also reading them, that I raced through in order not to have them spoiled by other people’s reactions and comments. So, I think I missed a lot the first time round. This time I so thoroughly enjoyed them and was able to really savor them. I am glad I decided to read the whole series again before the release of book 7. It’s been fun. And with that I have completed number 101 of my 101 Things in 1001 Days list “Re-read books 1-6 of Harry Potter before Book 7 is released.” At the time I started my 101 Things list (coincidentally on June 21, 2006), there was no official release date for book 7.
That’s all for today – hope you all are having a great Thursday!
I am grateful for Harry Potter.
