I thought it was very good. It was a much easier read than "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," but only because all of the Swedish stuff is becoming a little bit more familiar. I can't wait to get started on the next book in the series.

What is just too cool, is that not a week ago, Tom said we really need to pick up the movie, "Fools Gold." Well, guess what one of the two movies in the basket were? You guessed it. The other movie is "P.S. I Love You."

We had donations from people and businesses from all around town - it was great to see the community pull together to help out a friend in need. It was a crush, and hugely successful.

The background fabric has pink polka-dots (she likes polka dots), the pocket in front is pink (one of her favorite colors), she seems to really love buttons, and she likes owls (hence the addition of the owl charm). I had hoped to make a Tiny Book to put in the pocket, but the supplies didn't come in time, so I inserted some more buttons instead.
This is what I got from Jessica. It's wonderful, not quite what I would have expected for myself, but I love it.

I finished reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," by Stieg Larsson, tonight. The book turned out to be very good, despite my initial misgivings. I feel like it took forever to get through the first chapter, but only because I couldn't tell why it was so important to focus that much on a seemingly unrelated subject. After that, it all got much easier and enjoyable to read. And do the Swedes really drink that much coffee?

I'm slowing down - I don't think I've ever put this much effort into crocheting anything in a really long time. This pattern is the third from Red Heart, designated as Special Olympics patterns.
