Finish #77 – Twelve Days of Christmas

DSCN1877.JPGI must say that I’m not a huge fan of Debbie Macomber’s books. A big “sorry” to Ms. Macomber and all of her fans, but that’s just the way it is.

I will admit that I got hooked on those books she wrote awhile ago that were all titled with addresses. I can’t recall what the name of the series was, but I must have read at least ten of them before finally stopping. But, for the most part, I’m just not a fan.

But I saw this one, Twelve Days of Christmas, and it was (obviously) Christmassy, and I was ready for something Christmassy (despite the fact that we haven’t passed Thanksgiving yet), so I checked it out. It was okay. I think what I don’t like in Ms. Macomber’s books is that the characters behave strangely. They just don’t seem like normal people. I can’t explain it. I don’t know if it’s the way they talk, their actions, or what. It’s all just not normal.

To be fair, I did like the idea of killing someone with kindness that was presented in the story. I’m certain most of us have heard that expression. It got me thinking about who I would like to “kill with kindness.” Then I realized that I’m usually kind, but if a person annoys me, I’d prefer to stay away rather than find ways to engage (kindly or not) with them. Perhaps that’s not the best attitude, but…{imagine me shrugging here}. Judge me harshly if you must. I can take it.

Enough about that. I’m excited right now that I’m nearing the end of a quilting project. I’m looking forward to being able to share photos of my latest project in (hopefully) a few more days. (That would be a few as in a hopefully less than 30.) The quilting is taking some time. I’m doing this all over meandering quilting that is best done in small doses as it makes my wrists hurt to do it for any longer. I’ve also started a new project that has me excited to get back to my sewing room when time allows. I love having lots of unfinished projects!
