No stitching for me today ...

well, not so far anyway :)

I dropped the kids off at school and headed off to do the grocery shopping, came home, put it all away, turned on my computer, caught up on some emails and blogs, then buried myself in the book I started yesterday and that's pretty much my day :)

The book that has caught my attention, Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K Hamilton. It's the first book in a series about vampires and zombies - the main character is an animator and vampire hunter. If you are not into these sorts of themes then this isn't for you :)

Luckily for my stitching it is only a short book and I should have it finished by tonight, so I should be back to my normal stitching routine tomorrow. Provided I don't go and get the second book in the series and start on that!! I am a bit of a bookworm but I tend to read in phases, and I haven't had a good reading phase for a while so I guess I'm overdue for one :)

With regards to stitching, I have this overwhelming urge to go on a serial starting frenzy and start everything I have kitted up (and even some that I haven't!) ... not good!! Hopefully after my reading binge that will have quietened down!

Before I go, thank you all for kind comments about my Love Tree ornament and Merrick as well. I appreciate them all :)

I'm always deciding what to do each day to Mel. I am dying to read a book myself but I know how consumed I get with a good book and my stitching goes on teh back burner:) Lucky you going to see Robbie!!!!
