A Work in Progress



Adventures in (mostly) reading, and (sometimes) needlework and other artsy endeavors...

Teaser Tuesday: The Stepford Wives

2017-10-17T08:00:00-05:00

Since I have more or less cleared my night stand of most books, now I have the pleasure of 'rebuilding' it! First up is a new book for my monthly prompt. Although the first book I selected was most promising...



And Now for a Little Stitching?

2017-10-16T08:00:00-05:00

Hello stitching. Where have you been all year? There is something really comforting about pulling out a needle and thread and working on some small needlework project. I especially like Prairie Schooler samplers. You can keep your hands occupied and...



In Search of Cambridge, England

2017-10-05T17:53:00-05:00

Sometimes a story beckons even if you don’t quite know what it is. I do know it needs to be set in Cambridge, England. School or spy, or maybe a little code breaking? Set now or in the padt or...



A Governess, a Tutor & a Willful Young Woman

2017-10-04T16:00:00-05:00

I've picked a prompt book and am settling into it nicely. A little Victorian drama along the lines of Wilkie Collins or maybe Henry James's Turn of the Screw has a certain appeal and so far it is turning out...



October Prompt: Ghosts and Hauntings

2017-10-02T22:23:57-05:00

September didn't feel very autumn-like for the most part, save for a few teaser days. October has been wet and humid, but maybe fall will finally make an appearance. I'll blame it on the weather that my RIP-reading has been...



Bilgewater by Jane Gardam

2017-09-29T13:00:00-05:00

After reading Jane Gardam's Bilgewater, I want to read everything she has ever written. Every novel and every short story. Actually I have already read Old Filth as well as a number of her short stories and knew she was...



A Cold Day for Murder, Dana Stabenow

2017-09-28T16:00:00-05:00

Kate Shugak, all five feet and 110 pounds of her, is a force to be reckoned with. Straight black hair, flat cheekbones, brown eyes at a slight tilt and bronze skin, she has returned to northern Alaska and her Aleut...



Teaser Tuesday: Something Like Happy

2017-09-26T13:00:00-05:00

I really love John Burnside's writing. So much so that I've just gone off and ordered his novel A Summer of Drowning. I'm not sure how many novels he has written, but he has published a slew of books, most...



In Search of New Reading Prompts

2017-09-25T08:00:00-05:00

I'm starting to think about 2018 reading. Despite what feels like an endless summer, the year is quickly approaching the last few months. I might have not accomplished all or even much of what I hoped to at the beginning...



A Little Bookish Miscellanea

2017-09-22T11:00:00-05:00

I'm on the home stretch of Jane Gardam's Bilgewater, and it is So good. All those readers who 'virtually' pushed the book into my hands--thank you. You were right. It will easily top my best of reads list later this...
