I've started this book a couple of times - once on audio and once from the library, but didn't make much progress. This summer I bought it at a garage sale. The book is not as exciting as some murder mysteries that I enjoy, but I am finding that I like it very much, now that I can read it at my own pace, a little at a time. You get a personal view of the men who fought in the revolution.
I finished my purse today. Carissa's is the identical pattern, except she made hers a little taller and a most beautiful mauve shade. You can see it on her blog. I am happy with the way it turned out, although I will admit to taking it completely apart, and putting stiffer interfacing in it, and slightly altering the shape.
On Saturday Jeff, Susie, Hunter and Todd took Ben, Carissa and myself up to the river property. Ben and Carissa hadn't seen it. It turned out to be a beautiful warm day and the river was quiet - almost no boat traffic.
