Love Me If You Must by Nicole Young

I enjoyed this book. It has an Old Victorian house, with a body in the basement. Which makes the story a little bit scary. There is suspense, a small town, a nosey neighbor. A handsome police officer, an Englishmen with a sexy accent. Murder, mystery, and a bit of drama, makes this book a Good read.

Gypsy Hand Woven scarf

I know that I use the word Beautiful to much. But that is the perfect word to describe this hand woven scarf. I hand dyed, and hand spun Merino wool into these wonderful colors and named it Gypsy. Then I wove the soft, warm, beautiful yarn into a scarf. I do my weaving on a Cricket Loom. The scarf is 70 1/2 inches long(not including fringe), the fringe is 6 inches long, and the scarf is 5 1/4 inches wide. I just LOVE this scarf!!!

The Ashiel Mystery by Mrs Charles Bryce

The Ashiel Mystery by Mrs Charles Bryce has every single thing a GOOD mystery should have. This book has lots, and lots of twists and turns,
a secret code, secret society, murder, a bit of romance, a Great Detective, and a Scottish castle. I LOVED this book. Give it a Read!

Autumn Vineyard Scarf

I hand dyed and hand spun Merino wool, with the Beautiful colors of an Autumn Vineyard. I knew that this yarn had to be woven into a Beautiful scarf. It was so amazing watching the scarf come to life right before my very eyes on my loom. My Autumn Vineyard yarn is worsted weight, I used that for the weft on this scarf. The warp is a beautiful green Alpaca/Silk blend fingering weight yarn. Warping the loom with the fingering yarn, then weaving with the Worsted weight yarn really makes the colors in this scarf pop. I just LOVE it. The scarf is 5 inches wide, and 65 inches long, not including the fringe. The fringe is 5 inches long. I am so Happy with the way that this scarf turned out!
This item is available in my etsy shop

Dracula by Bram Stoker

This book was published in 1897. This is the first vampire book that I have ever read. This is an amazing book. The story is told through journal entries and letters, written by several narrators. It is exciting, mysterious, scary, suspenseful, and fast paced. I can see why this book is a classic. You must read this book.
