  1. I'm waiting for The Giver of Stars from the library (going to be a long wait), good know that it will be worth it. I finished The Garden of Small Beginnings, it was good. I didn't like it as much as The Bookish Life of Nina Hill but it's definitely worth reading. I also flew through Stolen Things by R.H. Herron, @Kim Werker was right, it's a real page-turner. I've now started on Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani and I'm finding it slow going. I'm not sure if it's because Stolen Things was so fast-paced or if it's the writing style, maybe both. It's a good story though so I'll keep going.
  2. Hi @angelak *waving back* 😃 I haven't read the October Daye series, never even heard of it but I just popped over and ordered it from the library (not that the library is open right now). Thanks for the suggestion! I'm about halfway through The Garden of Small Beginnings. I'm enjoying it although I don't like the main character as much as I liked Nina Hill. but I REALLY liked Nina Hill. I do enjoy the children in Abbi Waxman's books though, they are always interesting.
  3. I just started The Garden of Small Beginnings by Abbi Waxman last night. I loved her book The Bookish Life of Nina Hill and so far this one seems promising. I usually read chic lit, thrillers, mysteries, historical fiction, and romance with some fantasy, young adult, and biographies thrown in. Oh, and craft books of course. 😄 Books I currently have sitting on my TBR shelf or waiting to go back to the library because I've finished: The Garden of Small Beginnings by Abbi Waxman Stolen Things by R.H. Herron Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani The Body in Question by Jill Ciment Gracefully Grayson by Ami Polonsky (just finished it) I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll (finished it) Make It Mighty Ugly by Kim Werker (finished it) DIY Watercolor Flowers by Marie Boudon Felt Wee Folk by Sally Mavor (her work is amazing! https://weefolkstudio.com/) Sweet & Simple Needle Felted Animals by Sachiko Susa How to Sew Little Felt Animals by Sue Quinn Wool Toys & Friends by Laurie Sharp
  4. Hi @angelak, Great idea! Thanks for starting this group.
  5. @Alice Creason, it was dark when I took the picture, the lighter colour is actually off-white. Now that you mention it though, Gryffindor colours would look really good in my living room. Maybe the next one. 😄
  6. Way to go, Alice, it's beautiful! I'm hoping to finish my zig-zag blanket this month as well as establish a daily calligraphy practice.
  7. Hi, I'm Lori. I spend a lot of time thinking about making things (other than dinner) but am trying to spend more time doing. I started a blanket during the zig-zag crochet-along using Kim's Craftsy/Bluprint class to learn how. I was going along great and then life got in the way and the project sat in a bag for a while. During the MIMU workshop I started working on it again and I want to keep up my daily crochet time. Also, last year I did Show Me Your Drills, learning the basics of modern calligraphy with brush pens. I went on to learn the lower-case letters and how to join them but still haven't learned the upper-case letters so I'm trying to set up a daily practice for that. It is really something that needs to be practiced every day even if just for 5 minutes I have a lot of creative things I'm interested in, all of which I little or no experience with, and my goal is to try my hand at as many of them as I can this year. Embroidery, hand applique, sewing, needle felting, drawing, painting, art journaling and more but even if I only get to one or two I'll be okay with that.
  8. Anytime after the holidays is good for me. Thanks for doing this @daisywreath!
  9. Wow! You've been busy, great job! I love the hat. Glad to hear/see you're out of your slump.
  10. Great idea, @daisywreath! I would be interested.
  11. Really good, @Kim Werker! Your Blu-print class demonstrations are fantastic. I have to think about the valleys a bit each time but I'm almost finished my first row. I really want to keep going but my eyes have had enough so it will have to wait for tomorrow.
  12. After days of procrastinating, pondering, and puzzling I have figured out the number of stitches needed and completed my foundation chain. 😊 Time to tackle the first row.
  13. Hi Kim! No, we haven't met, maybe some day. I'm about an hour out of Vancouver. I'm going to try to watch some of the class this weekend. I'm excited to get started.
