My favorite embroidery books
I was very fortunate for Christmas and my birthday last year. Foliosociety books are so beautiful. I decided I had to clear a shelf off just for them...and the armadillo...
This was one of my last books for 2018. I rather enjoyed this book. There were a few nights that I stayed up way too late reading it to see what was going to happen. The characters were complicated and had issues which made them relatable. I also felt like the geography was it‘s on character. I definitely have a sweet spot for France
I was so lucky to receive these most wonderful #foliosociety books for my birthday. They are so very wonderful. The Winnie the Pooh is to die for. The end papers and illustrations by E.H. Shepard are fabulous. There are so nice that it's a bit hard for me to take them off the shelf and read them😊❤️📚
I am really enjoying this book. I rather like the older version of Sherlock. Wish there was a bit more time in my day to read more. This serene scene lasted about 20 seconds before the hooligans caused havoc. #schoolalmostbackinsession 😊
I am rather enjoying this sweet little book. It's perfect for reading right before bed. Nina's adventures are fun. I must admit I want to move to Scotland and buy a bookmobile. How fun would it be to have a double decker bus filled with books❤️🚌
I am really enjoying the second book. I really love the covers for both books. I love that Holmes is a girl and that there is chemistry between Holmes and Watson. I'm enjoying the European setting. I wish there was a little less angst, more details about disguises and sleuthing. I'm almost done and am looking forward to see how it wraps up...love the BBC Sherlock so I thought it would be fun to have some fun paper for this.
I received this lovely book from a dear friend in Wales. Her daughter loves it, and she thought mine would too. It is such a great book about friendship, drawing, and one's imagination. I highly recommend this wonderful book. I stitched up a little piece to send to my friend. #bookmail is the best.
I really enjoyed this fun book...I stayed up until 2 AM to finish it. There were parts that I really enjoyed(a dress that is magical and seems to have a mind of its own, the magical world where it takes place, and Julian). There were a few parts that I wish were stronger (more information/story about the clues, other contestants, etc.). I read it in a day because I was caught up in the story. It's not an all time favorite, but I'd read it again!
I thought this book had potential but it fell a little flat for me. I didn't really bond with the characters. I thought the main character wasn't as strong as I would have liked and the ending was kind of bland. I did like the parts in the bookstore. There was a bit of chemistry with another character that I kept hoping would develope but ended up being a little lackluster...
I really liked this little read. I love the idea of finding a little blurb in a newspaper and writing a story about the person. I enjoyed reading about Mata Hari's transformations in order to survive. I truly believe she was way ahead of her time and the consequence of her survival was her down fall. I love this photo on the cover! That head piece is amazing. I really loved the epilogue. I've decided to read a lot of spy stories in January.
I liked this book. I am a fan of dystopian novels. It was a darker read than what I normally read. I don't want to write too much about it and spoil the twist and turns. The ending had a good twist that made me 🤔. I really liked the the narrator's friendship with Penelope and the wolf.
My first book finished in 2017! I rather liked this book. I'm a sucker for a book about London, books, and libraries...so, it was an easy like. There is enough to the story line to remind me a little bit of Harry Potter which was lovely. There were parts of the story I found a little light and wanted more details, but for the most part I couldn't wait to read this each day...and I even ignored my children at times while reading it ...
I liked this last book in the trilogy. It didn't have the ending I wanted but I think it was the ending that was needed. There was a bit that was about 3/4 into the book that seemed a little slow. I did really like the flashbacks. I enjoyed this series and recommend it.
My favorite Christmas decoration...it's a little library.🙋🏻❤️📚
I really loved this book. I've always loved embroidery, but have always thought of it as kind of rigid. Love her carefree approach. There's also a cloth(not paper) sampler included which is so lovely. The ornaments I made in this photo were inspired by her ornaments class on creativebug dot com. The Santa pattern was from cozyblue on Instagram.
I just LOVED this book! I would sneak upstairs to read it under the Christmas Tree every afternoon in utter bliss! It's so bittersweet that I finished it! I loved it so much that I'm thinking about rereading it AGAIN right now - to shorten my mourning! #recommendsday #litsy #litsyfeatures
Holiday Hugs and Mistletoe Kisses.
I just love Joan Walsh Anglund. I was thinking of her when I created this. I used to have her dolls and many of her books.

I really enjoyed this book. It was such a unique, magical, love story. I have to say the Bonner girls reminded me of girls that would have gone to The Bauxbatons Academy of magic...unfortunately, they would have probably been supporters of Voldemort. They were so EVIl! I really loved reading about Miel's and Sam's friendship, and how it grew into love! And those moons Sam made 😍🙌🏻🌕🌑🌝🌛🌗
Adulting: I could barely get out of bed. I knew that my kids would freak if I didn't! It was really hard trying to explaining the results to them. Feeling so sad and embarrassed by the election results. I loved what Hillary had to say to the young girls in her speech today. To get me through the next four years: read more books!
I am struggling with this book. I feel like I have one eye on the book and the other on the dictionary. Some paragraphs seem to move along smoothly, and others are so clunky. At times, I wonder if the author had a thesaurus sitting next to her while writing this book. I also haven't connected with any of the characters. Fingers crossed that I start to feel engaged with this book! I hate to bail on books especially ones about magic.
I really enjoyed this book. After the first few chapters, I wasn't sure I would like this book. I wasn't really connecting with the characters. There was even a character that reminded me of Umbridge from Harry Potter that I was struggling with. Sometimes I don't want to read about evil people. I'm so glad I stuck with the book. I was really engrossed in the story by the end. Looking forward to the next one. #giveascarybook #allhollowsread
