I finished the back to the tunic I am making for Pk yesterday (and this evening, got a good start on the front). It isn't the most practical garment but it's awfully pretty, I think. I love working with bamboo and this pattern is pretty but doesn't involve too much complicated counted, which is a nice bonus.
In terms of reading, I am bouncing between several books at the moment, as usual. I always have at least one novel and one non-fiction book, usually faith and/or parenting related and this week is no exception. "Sacred Parenting" has been wonderful so far. I have to admit, it's a bit slow going for me since I need to be in the right quiet headspace for it and I just haven't been there of late. "Cast of Characters" by Max Lucado is wonderful!!! I have a new, very good friend who has no experience of church or Christianity who has decided to become a Christian. She has many questions about the Bible and I have been looking for some reading for her that starts easy but that I am comfortable with. This book is marvelous - profiles and discussions of major Biblical characters and as always, Max Lucado helps me to see things in new ways. My fiction reading, "The Quilter's Holiday" by Jennifer Chiaverini, is brilliant. I LOVE her books and her characters and she always manages to make me want to get out some quilting, even though I am most definitely a knitter at heart. Her books make me want to think about really matters and focus on that - family, friendship and, of course, crafting!
