An Inspirational Pattern
Blog about a pattern or project which you aspire to. Whether it happens to be because the skills needed are ones which you have not yet acquired, or just because it seems like a huge undertaking of time and dedication, most people feel they still have something to aspire to in their craft. If you don’t feel like you have any left of the mountain of learning yet to climb, say so!
As you can see from yesterday’s post, I have done some colourwork but I am not confident at it and I tend to get uneven stitches. So I avoid it. But I would really like to make these mitts. Just for the challenge.
I have a lot of left over half skeins of sock yarn, so I’ve no excuse really. Actually, I may even start today!!!
And a book review…………….
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the third outing for Jackson Brodie and I really like Kate Atkinson’s writing style. It just flows. There are some familiar characters in this book, and a series of coincidences which bring them together.
Brodie is travelling back to London from Yorkshire but gets on the wrong train heading for Edinburgh when it is involved in a train crash. His life is saved by a young girl who works for a doctor who mysteriously disappears when the man who murdered her family is released from prison. The doctor’s husband is being investigated for arson of one of his own amusement arcades, enter Det Insp Louise Monroe, an old flame of Jackson’s.
All these stories are tied together by the end of the book, and you are left wanting another book just to see what will happen to the main characters afterwards.
I really want to read Behind the Scenes at the Museum to see what her first novel was like.
