First, thank you for all the very kind comments for my Me Made May post! It might be the first time I have been successful in wearing things I made for an entire month and I did not make anything new, outside of the Romi Mystery Shawl that I finished during the month! Yes, that’s right – no new articles of clothing were made to get me through the month! I impressed myself and my closet space has increased dramatically! Where to go with all the things I have removed are the next thing I am contemplating. Donating in Coronavirus Times is turning out to be quite tricky! I will update you when I have found an outlet.
Sadly not much making going on in my house these days, but I have departed for Sleeve Island with my Ranunculus! Yay!
I have not picked up my Lunar Fade in a couple of weeks and I have yet to even wind the yarn for the TTL MKAL.
But if I can get those sleeves done sooner than later, I might get to one (or both??) this week!
I have two awesome finishes this week (and another bingo, but still no cover all!) Two excellent and dramatically different finishes! I also started a new bingo card this week!
Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope by Nicholas D. Kristof
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am not sure reading this book in the midst of a pandemic was smart, but there you have it. This was a hard listen. I cried multiple times in this book and without making this book be “all about me”, I absolutely saw much of my family in these pages. I am grateful for grandparents that made a difference in my life, like many of the people in this book. We as a nation must care about everyone, especially those outside the margins. I highly recommend this must-read book.
The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I did not know anything about this Japanese tale but I needed a book for a “retelling” for SAH Summer Bingo. Enter George Duncan and the book opens with him finding a wounded crane in his yard. And so the story begins. George has not been successful in life in relationships, but then comes Kumiko. I loved everything about this story. Love, loss, friendship, and a battle of good over evil. I highly recommend!
That’s all I have for this week… I am going to try and get those sleeves done! What should you be working on this week?
As always – if you wrote a post to share, please leave your link below and thank you!
