Updates, Updates, Updates!!!

I made a book selection!!! I'm now lost in the lovely world of Helen of Troy! Has anyone read this one? I read another one by Margaret George called Mary, Called Magdalene. (Also very enjoyable!)

I went a little buck wild with holds at the library and they're coming in in droves so there will be much fireside reading by Bex coming up! I LOVE IT!!!

Well, here's the picture I promised of me in my new sweater. This is the first sweater that I have ever made and am mostly just grateful that it looks like a sweater and not a potato sack!

Don't I look happy? I'm soooo happy!!!

And at long last here is my update picture for Lissandrea! She's so gorgeous!!! I go to work on her and I find myself staring at her instead!!! Much more stitching to come though. I love the winter because there's so much stitching time in the evenings! January and February are the best months for getting lost in projects!!!

Here are just some random pictures of my hubby and I at a family reunion we went to this past autumn. We look a little goofy but you get the idea!!!

I'll leave you with a final word from the LOL CATS:

Until next time ladies and gents! (Do any men read this...if so PLEASE drop me a line...I would love to hear from you!!!)

I was wondering for your lissandrea, are you going to stitch the whole pattern? Or do you plan on cutting it shorter?
SHe looks stunning!!!

My goal with Lissandrea is to do the entire pattern...but we'll see how it goes! LOL!

Lissandrea looks incredible! and I love your sweater!

PS - I'll let you know about the Samurai SAL - I've been told I'm getting it as a gift, but sometimes they trick me... XD

Lissandrea looks great! Love reading your updates! I'm very impressed about with your sweater as well! They do usually turn out looking pretty shapeless, so good work :)
