Time for a new book

Well, I finished Memoirs of a Geisha tonite. I did not remember the ending, so I was able to enjoy it all over again. Excellent material to stitch a geisha girl by. :) So, I have decided that I must keep the theme going – so the next book I am going to listen to is Cloud of Sparrows by Takashi Matsuoka. This book is set in the Edo period of Japan and is an action book about a samarai warrior, his geisha love interest and three missionaries. I know absolutely nothing about it but thought I’d give it a try. And, if I decide after finishing this book too, I have another Japanese book ready to go. (will i ever stop working on the geisha???)

Also today I got some goodies in the mail. Yoonhye, one of the ladies whom I host pictures for, sent me several magazines — including an issue of Treasures in Needlework. That was extremely kind of her and I can’t wait to add them to the database. I also got my order in from 123 from which Kathy, another lady whose gallery I host, got me a gift certificate. With the gift certificate, I ordered Goldie & Jewel. I will probably start one of these soon. (I am so bad!)

I’m off to make some website updates now. Until later…

One thought on “Time for a new book

  1. I’m with you: I always theme stitch! Don’t you find it makes the stitching that much more enjoyable?:)
    Now, this book takes place in China and not Japan, but if you want a great book to read that has that Oriental flavor then try “Spring Moon” by Bette Bao Lord. It is wonderful!
