|Knitting in my son's room for the Yarn Along|
Tuesday, March 08, 2011
This week I have been focusing more of my creative energies on sewing. I still haven't determined what to do for the quilt backing, but I love the ideas everyone provided. When I haven't been sewing, I have been reading. I picked up Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult from my parents' house this week. My mom had read it and thought it was fairly good. I had not planned to start it, but it was all I had at the gym one day. I started it and was hooked. It is a page-turner like most of her books, although not as good as some. I finished it in no time. I would recommend it as a quick easy read, however it does deal with neonaticide.
I also have another new read. A friend of mine recommended Freedom by Jonathan Franzen a few months ago. I have checked it out of the library twice, and the due date is looming. I decided to start it as well as read Coop. One of our librarians told me it is really good and has several holds, so there is no possibility of renewing it. If you need me, I am busy knitting the sweater, finishing up a pair of longies, reading two books and sewing a quilt. No problem, although I think I may be considered fickle in my pursuits lately.
