Some stitching and some reading
Since I have a few projects on the go I have decided to start a rotation. A lot of stitchers seem to do this. I thought it would be a good way to finally get TW "The Castle" finished since I haven't looked at it in I don't know how many months. I'll start Tuesday since I want to get the bookmark finished this week. Sunday and Monday will be "The Castle", Tuesday and Wednesday will be the wild blossom fairy and Thursday Friday will belong to Celtic Winter. I have left Saturday open for whatever I am in the mood to stitch or for little projects. In "cross stitch card shop" magazine there were some designs of cats sitting on top of parcels. One of them stood as sweet even to me (not a cat fan I have to admit) and I thought it would be ideal for my sister. So that might be one of my little projects.
Well, I am onto Chapter seven of Harry Potter. I'm not going to give anything away but if you don't want to know one of the chapter titles then look away now. One of the questions that everyone was asking as soon as the title of the book was released was, who is the half blood prince? There was a lot of speculation on that and JK Rowling had to say on a number of occasions that it wasn't Harry. Personally I didn't have a clue and just assumed that it would be a new character. I never really gave it much more thought until last night. I got to the chapter called "Half Blood Prince". It was then that I realised that I was so caught up in the fact that the next HP book was out that the title itself didn't register. Not once while reading did I wonder who the half blood prince was even though it is obviously going to be a big part of the story. It's weird how that happens.
