Colorations Again

I've been stitching.  I've completed the weaving areas (orange and purple sections)  

 and started stitching the center.  The weaving was fun, but did require some concentration.  I'm glad I waited until I was home to do it instead of starting it during the last hour of the last day of classes.  This is a class by Orna Willis called Colorations.

Purple May

Look what the birds planted for us!  A beautiful purple columbine smack dab in the middle of a patch of day lilies.  

 The iris are blooming

 and so are the salvia

and for another shade of purple we have clematis climbing on the post.

 I wonder if I have too much purple.  Nah, there's never enough purple.

Qiviut Cowl

I suspect watching progress on this cowl is going to be a lot like watching paint dry.

 

The yarn is so fine and the beads are fiddly and I knit very slowly.  But, it's pretty and ohhh soooo soft.

Krazy Batik

Yipee!!!   Krazy Batik is all done.  

 

The pattern is Krazy Keepsake from Australian Quilters Magazine.  I'm not sure of the exact issue, but I started the quilt in December of 2000, so it would have to be sometime before that.  Oh, I do like to age my quilts.

I am very pleased with this quilt and David likes it, so it's his.

The Girl Who Played With Fire

From the Goodreads website:  "Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government.

But he has no idea just how explosive the story will be until, on the eve of publication, the two investigating reporters are murdered. And even more shocking for Blomkvist: the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to Lisbeth Salander — the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years genius hacker who came to his aid in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and who now becomes the focus and fierce heart of The Girl Who Played with Fire.

As Blomkvist, alone in his belief in Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation of the slayings, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous hunt in which she is the prey, and which compels her to revisit her dark past in an effort to settle with it once and for all."

Well, I know that I am late to the game on this one.  What a great book.  I spent a few nights reading when I should have been sleeping.  I have the third book on order because I need to know what happens next. The ending is quite a cliff hanger.
