I am now reading a series of four books called The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce. This author was recommended to me a year or so ago and this is me just trying it. I have to say that I am glad that I finally did. This is a book I wish I had read when I was a kid. It is very easy to read but very entertaining. I'm finding it very hard to put down. I would say that it is a step between Harry Potter and David Eddings. I also like the idea of a female hero in fantasy.
I have been stitching away and have another photo update of The Castle. I don't think it will be too much longer before I finish the Castle and move onto the dragon. I have also been trying my hand at paper crafts. I bought some care bear stamps on Saturday. A friend of mine is leaving work and she asked me to make a card using them. Yesterday I went out and bought some materials and thought I would give it a go. The result is a good luck bear card.
I'm quite proud of it since it is my first attempt. I used little tabs to raise the bear and the care bears sign from the surface and used layers of different types of green paper as a background. I used glitter for the little bears symbol (it's supposed to be a four leaf clover). I had bought some lime green paper with flower petals in it. I was disappointed that I couldn't find a use for it until I decided to stick it inside the card so that the card had another layer inside. I now have my sister demanding that I make one for her.
