Guess I'm slowing down!! Or side-tracked. All of a sudden many of the people I graduated from high school with (bad grammar) are showing up on Facebook. Could be because our 45th reunion is this weekend. I won't be going, but it's been great re-connecting. And seeing how they-certainly not me- have aged. I will say that our class beauty is still lovely. But some of the men have gone a little to seed. My cousin Jimmy excepted. He still looks the same.

On the needlework scene, I'm in the process of having Stephanie at Nouveau Encore design a family sampler for me. I need to send her the info that I've chosen because the more I look, the more I change. It will probably be the largest piece I've attempted and probably the last large chart I will do. There's something great about finishing a piece in a few days and then putting it together or taking it to the framer's.

Have a look: http://www.nouveauencore.com/

On the reading scene, the Jane Austen Stitching Group decided to read a book together. Well, I bought it and have read it. Okay, it was passable. To me, there's absolutely nothing about JA that says detective. But I also made another discovery. There is a series of books written by CJ Sansom. They're about a Quasimodo-like character named Matthew Shardlake. He's a Tudor age attorney who solves mysteries. I'm about half finished with the first one. Very good series and I'm going back for more.

That's all on the home front. See ya'll later.

I can't wait to see the finish.
Our 30th high school reunion is this year. I can't wait to see how some of them look after 30 years.

How exciting to have a sampler designed for you, i'll look forward to seeing your progress on this.

Do you think men age faster than women? i see some locally that i was at school with and the ladies always look better than the men, maybe be take more care of ourselves??

I'll enjoy watching your progress on your sampler! I can't wait to see what you've decided to use to represent your family.

I've read "Sovereign" so far--I seem to have a talent in jumping into the middle of a series--and I have "Revelation" (??? That title doesn't seem right... it starts with an R...) waiting for me. It's a fun series!
