WIP Wednesday

This week has been awesome! I never thought I would enjoy getting up and taking my partner to the train in the mornings. But I do. Though my body is still adjusting and settling into the new times I love what happens after I get home. There is an hour just to sit and think in the mornings all by myself. This morning I'm using it to write, but on other days I just sat and read my book. It starts my day off on a great feeling. This moment of me time just to sit and think and get ready for the day. I am finding that I feel better in the mornings having had some time to wake up before dealing with everyone else. Does anyone else find this? It's like the quiet before the storm. 

Now I didn't get much stitching done this week. Actually not much of anything. I DRAAAAGED the kids to the Library last week and they found a pile of new books but so did I! 

One of my favourite fantasy authors is Mercedes Lackey and she is known for her Valdemar series which had about 30 books in it and I had almost all of them. Are you hearing the had? At the Library I found 3 more books added to this series one starting a whole new trilogy/story line. The Valdemar series is broken up into groups of trilogies that tell different stories throughout the time of this land. Usually centred around a different protagonist each time. I love that you can read 3 books and be satisfied or 30 and it's all about the same world. SO the new books I've read are Redoubt and Bastion from the Collegium chronicles series, and Closer to Home from The Herald Spy series. 

I also found a NEW series she has started. Oh gosh... I know myself and I will be hanging out and waiting for each book of this series to appear! It's awesome! There will be at least 12 books following the 12 daughters as they adventure out into the world. I'm in heaven! This one is called The house of the four winds and it's a joint effort with James Mallory. It's the start of the One Dozen Daughters series and I am looking forward to seeing more appearing. 

I have been struggling to get into books recently and really haven't felt like doing much and then since Wednesday last week I've gone through 4 books and I'm looking for more! 

Now this isn't a book post. It's meant to be a WIP post but I don't have any of those. I do have a finish that I managed to start and finish yesterday. Though it needs it's own post to explain  exactly what it is I will leave you with this teaser picture. 

Can you guess what it is? 

More to come on Friday anyway so you don't have to wait long. 

Happy Stitching, 


  1. I also get up 1-2hrs earlier than others at home. But I do only house work at that time. I try to finish off early so that I have uninterrupted time until late afternoon when I have all the house to myself. I guess that is a crochet needle holder or coloring pen/pencil holder.

  2. I am naturally an early riser so might try getting up earlier and having some time to myself. Sounds like a plan! I guess you made a jewellery roll.

  3. I'm an early riser, too, and I have always loved the first hour of the day. When I was still working I got up an hour earlier than necessary to get ready for work, just to sit down, read the morning paper and think about the day to come. And now that I'm retired I do the same: I get up early and enjoy the first hour of my day to get prepared for everything to come.

  4. ... oh, I would guess it's a needlebook?

  5. I love getting up early, I always feel so productive on those days (maybe just because I have an extra hour to get stuff done?!!!)
    Your finish looks lovely, I'm going to guess that it's a crochet hook holder.

  6. You sound so happy! That's fantastic I could hear the joy in your words as I read them. I'm glad that you found this great way to start the day and the books sound really cool. I love that genre. Happy reading
