Best pen in the world
Away from my boring story about pens I picked up my stitching again last night. I got about half of what I picked out done. I am going to have to take a break from it soon as I have a bookmark to stitch. I have no idea what design I am going to chose for the bookmark but I think I will try and make a start on that tonight. This week I challenge myself to learn how to upload photos from my camera so that I can post decent progress photos.
I finished reading "The Man In the High Castle" by Philip K. Dick yesterday. It's the first alternate history book I have read and I really enjoyed it. It is set in America which is controlled by Germany and Japan. America and the rest of the world are supposed to be split between the two after they won the war. One of the parts I liked about the book is that it describes a famous book which the Japanese allow but the Nazis banned. This book tells what happens if the allies had won WWII. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it. It's not just for sci fi fans as there is very little of sci fi in it. This was my first taste of Philip K. Dick and I look forward to reading more of his work.
