I finally finished Hemingway (yay!) and I must say I think he turned out pretty cute (the pattern is an enlarged version of a Christmas ornament pattern that Anna Maria Horner has at her blog). I still feel a little badly that he took me so long to finish, but he’s done now and that’s all that matters (right?).
And here are Hemingway and Ollie together; they are now very good friends and inseparable.
I also finished a pillow last night and a present for Alex, but I’m not going to post pictures until he sees them. He’s supposed to be home tonight, but I have a feeling that that’s not going to happen. I’ll post pictures of those once he is back.
I’m currently reading Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris (who also wrote Chocolat). It’s really interesting and well-written; I’m really enjoying it and, since Alex has been gone for the past few days, I’m actually almost done with it. I accidentally left Katharine Graham’s autobiography at my apartment (I still have my old apartment through the month) on Sunday when my Mum came to see me for Mother’s Day. Lucky for me I have a bunch of books at the new apartment and was able to grab the Harris book to read.
I bought a couple of books at the thrift store on Monday. I found Brunelleschi’s Dome by Ross King (I was a Fine Art History major in University), The Navigator of New York by Wayne Johnston, and God’s Equation: Einstein, Relativity, and the Expanding Universe by Amir D. Aczel. Books make me happy.
I think I may sew some quilt blocks tonight to keep myself occupied.
