~ My Weekend ~

Saturday and Sunday were both lovely sunny days with temps in the 80s. Saturday I just puttered the day away and Sunday I went to Colorado...well actually I spent nearly all day on the patio.... reading a wonderful new book, Prayers For Sale, set in Colorado. It's by a favorite author of mine...Sandra Dallas. The story takes place in 1936, during the Great Depression and tells the wonderful story of friendship between two women, Hennie and Nit. For me this is a can't put down book and I don't want to see it end book. I know others might not feel this way about PFS or any of Sandra Dallas's books but that's how I respond to her stories. Besides reading...
I also stitched a little on Kindrid Sprits....this was one of our stitch alongs but I put it aside last September when I went on vacation and this is the first time I've picked it up since then....me thinks I'm very naughty. I need to finish kitty, do the border and a pin wheel and then frame it which I'm going to give a try. Hope you all had a fun weekend, see you soon...hugs, Linda

I have never read that author, maybe I will give her a try. I certainly do love to read. I just finished a book yesterday on a bus trip. I want to go buy the now out in paper back Debbie Macomber book. It was supposed to come out yesterday.
Your stitching looks great.
