Happy Dance time…

well, um…no, I haven’t finished anything. Not exactly. Finishing something would imply I’ve done some needlework. Unhappily, that’s not the case. However, just picture good ole Snoopy dog, wavin’ his arms (paws?) in the air, feet a-tappin’…and that will give you a good picture of what I was doing two days ago. Why?

Because it’s arrived!

What’s arrived, you may ask…


Monica Ferris ‘Knitting Bones’

Monica’s new book is out…this is the tenth or eleventh (I can’t remember which) in the series of Betsy Devonshire novels. How could I possibly resist stories where a needleworker and knitter is the protagonist?

I wait eagerly for her books to come out, buy them, spend 2-3 hours in a fun, easy read, then have to wait a whole ‘nother year. My only wish? I wish Monica Ferris (her pen name) would write a little faster. 🙂

‘Knitting Bones’ is a fun addition to the series. Lots of Betsy, Jill and Godwin time, plus a fun sub-plot about a crow. (yes, I said a crow :-))) No mention of Morrie or Irene, but a surprise appearance is made by a member of the Monday bunch who’s been um…involuntarily…absent for a number of years.

For those who just want to spend a couple of hours enjoying a fictional world set in a suburb of Minneapolis, this is a fine choice. I really enjoyed it.

    Thank you for the tip on the new Monica Ferris book! I have read most of the early ones, but haven’t done too good at keeping up with the recent additions. I’ll have to check it out 🙂
