I finished this wool project a few wks. ago and decided I'd like to frame it later on, so that is why the edges have not been finished out. It is a Buttermilk Basin design. I added red beads to the strawberries and a gold bead for the eye.
"Here to Stay" written by a new author Melissa Tagg. This is her second book and I loved the way she intertwined a few of the characters from her first book into this second one and gave them a whole new story line. I fell in love w/the secondary character of Blake the first time around and now he is one of the main characters in this new book. He's just as charming as ever, but I like the way the author gave us way more insight as to why he is so charming, but also vulnerable (he was running from things that happened in his past). He comes home after traveling around the world for five yrs. and he's not sure what kind of homecoming he'll receive.
Autumn knew him yrs. ago (her sister dated his brother), but she never really got to know the real Blake until circumstances throw them together where they have to work on a big Christmas project for their beloved town. She's been running her family's inn for the past several yrs. and longs to travel the world, but would especially love to live in Paris. Her inn is in desperate need of a makeover (so that she can sell it and move on) and he needs help coordinating the annual Christmas festival so he will be offered a dream job (so he can stay put for a change).
They decide to team up and help each other out, but end up in more than one comical situation after another and of course, they are super attracted to each other as well. Will she move away, or does she stay? Read it to find out! You won't want to miss out on what happens in between!! I liked this second book even better than the first!
Ok, that's it for now folks, but I hope to be back sooner rather than later!!
