Too hot to hike? I’ve been enjoying this time to read and sew.
I read two short books last week that I highly recommend. Year by the Sea was an excellent book. If you’ve ever felt like running away and reinventing yourself…this is inspiring. And The Gift of the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh was beautifully written and timeless. They are not ‘new’ books so you may have read them already, but they were new to me.
I’ve been stopping by the library more often to spend time browsing to find authors I haven’t read. Some are good….others I’ll pass on. But you just never know. I couldn’t get interested in the ‘beach’ books I checked out but last night I started, A Lesson in Secrets and I’m loving it already.
I read The Beautiful Mystery and it was good, too!
Sewing has been great fun and I jump from one project to another. I was on Etsy looking at cute little cloth dolls to get ideas and found this pretty little girl. The sweet lady that made her is Bella and she is as beautiful as her name. She even shared the pattern with me. Thank you Bella!
So I am busy making my own versions of this sweet dollie. (I’ll show you my progress tomorrow!) Look at all of Bella’s amazing dolls on Etsy HERE! You’ll fall in love with them, too!
I’m joining Ricki Jill for Literary Friday HERE!
Have you read a good book I should know about?
Have a beautiful Monday!
