Yes, The World IS Flat!

One fourth of the world is now pinned to a folded quilt to serve as a reference point for Strip Two. Incidentally, Strip Two is not going so well. It was started. The shaping was off. It was ripped.

In the same holiday vein, my gifts arrived from my generous partner for the Book Swap at Knit The Classics. I received the lovely items from Canada: my very own copy of Wuthering Heights complete with a double hearted book mark that I really-really like! Of course, the requisite chocolate candy came in the form of chocolate hearts made by Shakespeare Candy Company. How perfect is that, I ask! My swap package is winging its way to Hawaii. If I could have figured out how to jump in that package myself, I too would by on my way to Hawaii! I wonder if the postage for me would be less than the price of a plane trip...hmmmmm....Something to further ponder.

This is just lovely!! Thank you-thank you, Jamie!!

The Passion of Reverend Nash by Rachel Basek is a gripping story of a female pastor as she grapples with the passions of her private and professional life and finds her way to her true calling. The author supplies a surprising yet altogether satisfying end to this beautifully told story.

I believe that there is a plan and a purpose for each person's life and that there are forces working in the universe to bring about good and to create a community of love and brotherhood. Those who can attune themselves to these forces - to God's purpose - can become special instruments of his will.--- Coretta Scott King
