I am a desperate reader. I read everything. I have looked up the ingredients in the bathroom cleaner. So here I am one day, sitting in my chair completely hammered with the drivel on television. And literally with tears of boredom rolling down my cheeks I open my faithful iPad to find a new author, hopefully one with thirty or so books. I have read every book by every relatively famous author dead or alive. And for pity sakes what do I find on the best seller list? Vampires!

Oh joy. Me and vampires. The only thing I inherited from my mother is a dread of blood. I can't even look at bruises.

But as I said I was DESPERATE. So, I think I'll just skip all the gory parts. The author kind of gets her hooks in me though with a little blurb about getting the chance "to walk in your boots." There you go, I like boots!

So I start reading this book, skeptically. And what happens, this big pushy, really gorgeous vampire starts harassing the main character. A very nice young woman, who volunteers and is funny and level headed.

Well, I have got nothing better to do than go vacuum the living room so I keep reading. Wouldn't you know it, this vampire would like to get to know the woman, now it's getting kind of compelling.

I definitely don't like him. But the author had words and ideas that got me thinking about my prejudices. She really turned my head. She took me from loathing to really caring for the man.

That is never a small thing.
And it just happens to be one of the best love stories I ever read. Apparently I am not the only one. The book has a following an author could envy. Get a sample from the Apple book store, you might like it.
The book is Eternal Lover by J R Ward.

While you are reading listen to some music

Finally, here I am again. Older and wiser. Loved these technologies so much I stopped and learned a few new tricks, made some major tweaks and find myself ready to start rolling this ball again.

I say tweaks with humor because what I really did was change everything! Now I am only about five years behind everyone else. So stay tuned while we kick in a few walls, repack some of the potholes around here and get busy again.

As I recall I needed to add a lace design for you to try on the blog over at Google, and I planned to reload my samplar from the History of Decorated Fabrics. Keep visiting I have some really exciting things in store, video demonstrations, little projects, and some really pretty new designs. Keep Stitching, a Lot! September 6, 2018
