Not much time today; too much going on in my personal life (all good). This was done quickly and I quite like it. It's String Challenge #54 and two of the tangles are completely new to me.
PokeLeaf (M Thomas & R Roberts)
Onamoto (M Thomas & R Roberts)
Hurray (Agneta Landegren)
Planateen (Sandra Strait)
The last two were new and I plan to use both of them again.
What a lovely, lovely day it was here; cool, sunny, no humidity. Just perfect. Everything looked washed clean-and-clear after yesterday's downpours. I was fortunate to get outdoors and take a walk. I am also reading a lovely, (if controversial) book called The Mockingbird Next Door, which brings back all the pleasure of reading To Kill a Mockingbird for the first time in the 1960s, and again just a couple of years ago. This biography of Harper Lee may inspire me to read the novel a third time. The controversy in my current book is over whether she authorized the biography or not. Whether she did or she didn't, the book itself is evocative and enjoyable, and certainly seems harmless to her reputation--so far. Back to reading!
