Blackwork by Monica Ferris

I recently finished this book by Monica Ferris.  I thoroughly enjoyed the book.  It is a mystery and needlework is mentioned throughout it.  It's a mystery in the style of Murder She Wrote mysteries.  I found it very interesting and plan on purchasing more of her books. 

Listening to the rain

We are finally getting rain today.  All the trees and plants are so sad.  They have been without rain for days and days.  I am also keeping an ear out for the weather radio, severe thunderstorms are coming with the rain.  Hopefully all will go well and everyone will be safe.  High wides and hale warnings are out.  I had been hoping for just a nice soaking all day rain but here we go.  Praying that all goes well for the folks in the path of the storms.

Gift for Aunt

These are pictures of a shawl that I had completed some time back.  At a recent family reunion I realized that my aunt would appreciate having something handmade to wear when she reads her devotional in the morning.  She just turned 90 years old and reads her devotional every day. 

So maybe when she is enjoying her morning tea, reading her nook, or working crossword puzzles this will let her know that someone far away is thinking of her.  Wishing her well.
