The joys of having a public holiday today means today I could be totally selfish and lazy and not get out of bed or get dressed until the afternoon! Instead I spent the morning reading half of J.R. Ward’s “Dark Lover” and getting it finished … and have to admit I’m looking forward to book number 2 of this series, “Lover Eternal”.
After being relatively disappointed with the Twilight vampire series, I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this book … although with the ‘adult’ scenes, it certainly isn’t comparing apples with apples with the Twilight series … I think the only similarity is that they both contain vampires! It’s taken me literally a couple of months to read this book, mainly because I keep putting my stitching first – I get the impression from the end of the book, though, that my book reading may soon have to take a priority on the odd weekend and my stitching will have to take a back seat! That’s the only downside to reading a ‘real’ paperback, I can’t do both of my passions at the same time 😛
The rest of the morning has been spent finishing off my Sweetheart Tree project that I started last night – it took longer than expected, as I’d forgotten just how much of a nightmare all that backstitching is … but worth it in the long run! I managed to watch 4 episodes of The Ghost Whisperer (3rd season) while I stitched. Sorry for the crappy photo, as it certainly doesn’t show up the nice warm buttery linen!
Offer: Seeing as I’ll never ever stitch this one again, I’m happy to offer up the chart to anyone who wants it. If you leave a comment in this post that you’d like to go into the draw for this chart, I’ll draw a name out at the end of the week. I’ll also send the leftover beads – I’m pretty sure there are enough left over to complete the project again.
Now it’s time to finally shake off the cobwebs and jump in the shower and get dressed – I need to pop over the road to the supermarket to buy supplies to bake some banana muffins … then it’ll almost be time for bed again LOL.
