One of my favourite things to do is read. Over the past year or so, I’ve found it more and more difficult to hold books of any size let alone huge ones like Ken Follett’s World Without End. I finished Pillars of the Earth and wanted to read World Without End but the weight of it caused my wrists to start aching within minutes. The one gift I really was hoping for this year was an eReader so I was thrilled to open the Kobo eReader. The first book I got was the new Follett, Fall of Giants.
After about the first 10 pages, I was used to the page turning speed and wasn’t finding it a deterrent at all. I’d read quite a few reviews and that seemed to be the biggest drawback but the new wireless Kobo is quick enough for me. As it means I can read as much as I want without wrist pain I’m hoping that translates into fewer issues with my wrists.
Quite a bit more got added to the baby quilt Monday night and I’m on schedule to get the piecing finished by week’s end. I may even have it finished other than the outer pieces by the time today is over.
Do you make a list of quilt goals for the new year? I thought about doing that but realized, for me, it’s destined to be unsuccessful. What I am going to try to do is set aside some small items that I make throughout the year into what I’m thinking of as the Christmas box and have them all done by the end of the summer. This year I got nothing done for Christmas that I had hoped to do because, as usual, I had left everything to the end of the year.
