Two down!

 I finished the second clue of the Sharon Show mkal. It's fun, and because I"m so familiar with Casapinka's designs I trust I will like it.  I wish I had used some different colors for the thorn stitch (the third section  from the top--it has two colors of pink in it but you can't really tell from the photo) but it still looks good. Two more contrasting colors would have helped.

We started watching "The Brokenwood Mysteries" and this a good series--it is a bit more lighthearted and less gross than Midsomer Murder (where people tend to die in icky ways). 

I finished "Kings County" which was---interesting? Kind of a mystery, kind of a relationship story, kind of an homage to what Brooklyn used to be--it kept me going til the end but I didn't stay up all night to read it.

The 'oof' is improving, I can tell. I now only get really sharp pains when I transition from sitting to standing or laying down. I really took it easy yesterday and I think that helped.

Not much else to report!

I'm playing around with Inky Wonderlands, too! It's really fun, isn't it? She has some free instructional videos. They don't have more info than the book, but she is quite charming. She has an adorable Scottish accent.

So glad you didn't break anything when you fell. Although bruised ribs hurt as much as a break!

I love that shawl. But then, I've never met a Casapinka pattern I didn't like.
