Hurrah it's Friday! But no photos to show
At last it's Friday - my last day at work! Although I have enjoyed it I am glad it's over. It's been great catching up with my friends and, of course, the extra money will come in handy but I have missed 'my time'.

The only stitching I have done this week is to make a start on my freebie chart piece for the HOE exchange and this was only because I went to Stitch-n-Bitch on Wednesday evening. Obviously I cannot post a photo yet but it's nice and I like it, although I am not sure how I will finish it yet. I need to finish off my needleroll this weekend for the Monthly Finishing Challenge and I would like to put a few stitches in Hannah Beeby too. Apart from household chores I have nothing planned so hopefully I will be able to stitch some.  I have already mailed Wendy's RR (and the Quaker scissor keeps) off to Edgar and I am waiting for Wendy to send me Donna's RR. This is my first Round Robin (hopefully not my last) and I am really enjoying it. 

I managed to get a paperback copy of Stephen King's Duma Key off Ebay which I cannot put down. I wouldn't buy this in the hardback version as it's rather a large and heavy book which I find difficult to hold so I have been waiting for it to be released in paperback. The problem is that reading means no stitching - maybe I should have waited until I could have downloaded it from iTunes? I must admit I am not a great Stephen King fan although I have read a few of his earlier books, but Duma Key is set on a fictional island on the west coast of Florida which is where we go for our vacations (the west coast not a fictional island!). Stephen King lives on Casey Key and we have seen his house from Turtle Beach on Siesta Key and I can tell how well he knows the area as he has mentioned several places that I know. It does make me 'homesick' especially as I am not sure we will be able to make a visit this year :-(

Have a good weekend 
Thanks for visiting

    I can't wait to see your needle roll! And I don't generally read Stephen King but I've seen a few of his movies and they are scary! Are the books are frightening?
