Challengers done so far

In January I set myself some challengers for 2010. They were to read two books a month, complete my two cross stitch projects and finish my crochet and knitting blankets.

I read the two books: ‘Home in time for breakfast – a WW1 diary’ and ‘MASH an army surgeon in Korea’.

I’ve done a little bit of one of the cross stitch projects. The other one is on black fabric, and as my eyes aren’t as good as they used to be, I need good sunlight when I’m working on it.

I’ve now got only 39 ½ knitted squares and seven more ‘rounds’ to do on the blankets.

Here’s to February’s challengers.

Good god! Marie, that is impressive. I'm still struggling with The Suspicions of Mr Whicher. Good but heavy going. You really have set your mind to it.

How about Catcher in the Rye next? Going to read that one again soon.

Hope you're feeling better.

Hello JS,

It's not really that impressive when you think I'm at home all day. I'd love to do more but the painkillers I'm taking have a habit of knocking me out...

The Catcher in the Rye is one book that I've never read. Will add it to the never ending 'would like to read' list.
