First I would like to say a big thank you to all of you who left comments and sent me e-mails about books I should read. Thank you so much! Of course now I have a very long list that I need to take to the library, but I think that is always a good problem to have.
I am still working on the shawl, I think I am a little more than a third of the way done. The pattern is actually for an adult, and since I am making it for Emma, who is just a little peanut, it won't need to be nearly as long. It is supposed to be a shrug, so I really only need to make it long enough to be the width of her body after I sew the sleeves together. I think it will be perfect for spring, and plan to give it to her as a birthday present. Since her birthday isn't until May, I have a bit of time!
I finished The Fringe Hours this week. I really enjoyed it. I am also going through the videos each week with the Bloom Book Club which is equally as good. I like how the author really makes her hobbies and personal time a priority. If we never fill ourselves up, how can we continue to give to others? Overall, very good book! And it continues with my whole theme of self-care and self-reflection this year!
I grabbed the above book, Attempting Elizabeth, off of Kindle unlimited (hey, you get a free 30 day trial!). I don't think I realized that there is pretty much an entire genre of books about Pride and Prejudice. I mean, I realized it to some extent since I have read other books like Austenland, but I didn't realize there were so many re-writes. This was a quick read, kind of cheesy, but cute as well. Something easy to read after all the non-fiction I have been reading as of late!
Are you reading anything new? What projects are you working on?
