A Work in Progress

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

My Handiwork on Display


Remember all those weaving (and other fiber) classes I took this summer? My finished projects are hanging up in the hallway outside the classrooms at the museum along with the other students' work. Here's a little peek at my work...

Food in Fiction: A Thursday Thirteen


Reading Louise Miller's The City Baker's Guide to Country Living makes me hungry. That's how "into the moment" I am when reading it. Some books do that to you. There is a certain pleasure factor to reading generally, of course....

A Suitable Boy: Part 1


Time for a Suitable Boy update and progress report. Part one finished and only eighteen more parts to go! That kind of sounds like a lot, doesn'it it? If I read only one part a week I will finish by...

Teaser Tuesday: The City Baker's Guide...

Recent Book Acquisitions!


I've been busy. Can you tell? It's not quite as "bad" as it looks. This pile is from the Daedalus catalog, which is chock full of inexpensive and remaindered books. A stack of new remaindered William Trevors! Running from top...

Teaser Tuesday: A Suitable Boy


Yes, I'm sorry. I hope I won't drive you mad by too much of A Suitable Boy. I am hoping to write about it once a week or so, but since it is on my mind and what I am...

Now for Something Epic: A Suitable Boy


I think I need a new category of "books read (or reading)", though in this case it is more a matter of "books attempted to read". There was a time (much like there was a time when I only read...

Characters in Fiction and Their Books


Although certainly not a requirement, isn't it nice when reading a story to be able to relate to the characters? You want to be able to empathize, that is part of the reason I love reading--being able to walk in...
