WIP and Yarn Along

Today is my birthday…not sure what we are doing, except going to find a good hamburger…I’ve been craving one…maybe go to the movies…who knows…

I read Maus I and II this week…powerful! and Sweet Tooth….

All of these are graphic novels and the Hubs wants to know when I turned into a teenage boy…..Sweet Tooth, very interesting…I do want to read the rest of the series…

I just started the 4th Martin book…..I needed a break, so I’ve only read a couple of chapters..

I also took Spencer’s Mountain out of the library…I’ve been watching The Waltons all summer, so decided to read the book (I was reminded of it by Lazy)

I also went back to Borders this week and purchased

I’m gonna give toe-ups a try…and the colorwork in the other book is just pretty to look at!

All my projects shown are socks in various states…..my upcoming crochet project is a swap gift…

Yesterday I spent the day beading and made two earring and bracelet sets and a bunch of stitch markers for my swap partner….

Happy birthday! I hope you have a wonderful evening. :)

And Maus really is powerful, I read the first volume a while back and was pretty stunned. I love graphic novels, I need to read more of them.
