Christmas Tea Towel Exchange
Yesterday I finally found out who my partner in Namuelle's Christmas Tea Towel Exchange on San's forum is. It was Namu herself who stitched this delicious looking cake for me.
Let me share what she wrote in the Christmas card she included in the package. "I stitched a cake that we eat for Xmas Eve. It's a 'RELIGIEUSE'. A cake perfect for your hips! A lot of soft cream, some are pink or green." Namu also enclosed some cute Christmas stickers & decorative buttons. Thank you Namuelle, this is a sweet treat.
My exchange was sent to Heather (Bookworm) in Ohio. She has received her package so I can share a picture of the Christmas ornament tea towel I stitched for her.
Now on to one of my other hobbies. Yesterday I discovered that an "Overdue Books Reading Challenge" is being started on http://www.jimnshelle.net/books/archives/003945.html The rules are very simple. You have to choose five books which you presently own and which you will read by January 30, 2007. Your book titles are then posted in the comments section of the challenge. It's so much fun to see what everyone is reading and great to dream about what to buy once you've finished your own five.
This is the challenge for me!! The books I've chosen should give me enough variety in themes to actually accomplish what I set out to do. They are:
"Flying South" Barbara Cushman Rowell
"Winterdance" Gary Paulsen
"The Furies" John Jakes
"The Last Camel Died At Noon" Elizabeth Peters
"Blonde Martijn" Olaf J. De Landell
