Reading, Sewing and Journaling...

I'm busy, busy, busy sewing on my Christmas tree rug today. Still have some hope that I might, might get it done for the weekend...

I've been seeing this book recommended on lots and lots of blogs I read now for...a good year I think. So tempting. But I have resisted as I know normally I like "realistic books"...anything to do with ghosts, magical creatures, aliens etc...well it just does nothing for me, I just don't enjoy them somehow. One exception: Harry Potter - which I totally love! So anyway, this "Twilight" series of books have been popping up on blogs nearly weekly for me and yesterday afternoon I spotted it on Amazon for only £2.95. And I thought it was worth a gamble. It turned up this lunchtime and it's currently lying on the bedside table teasing me. I have to say, reading on the back...well I think it might be something for me after all... Fingers crossed :)

Today I have started to think about my Christmas Journal for this year. I have done one for the last 2 years following Shimelle's great class. What size to do...? I'm pretty sure I want a rectangle format rather than a square format. Nothing too majorly big. Maybe 7x5...maybe a little larger. We'll see... Are you joining me too? :)

All I can say is that when you start reading Twilight make sure you dont have plans for the next few hours! I started reading mine and couldnt put it down!! I finished it off in 5 hours lol Its a great book.

You are a bad influence, I want to go buy the book tomorrow. Hopefully the Borders down the street from me has it! I'll need to stop reading your blog soon LOL!

Not sure I will do Shimelle's class this year considering I gave up on day 9 last year.
