I have added several rows to the Granny's Favorite prayer shawl. Instead of crocheting two or three squares a day, I have been trying to do a row of nine squares. So now I have 54 of 243 squares done. I am liking the pattern more each time I add more squares . After I had three rows done, I realized it looked like a nine patch quilt.
Having just finished a book about the years following the Civil War, I am now reading a book about a family during the Civil War. I have recently realized how much I like historical fiction. Daughter of Twin Oaks is set in Kentucky, at the beginning of the war, where a teenager is thrust into an adult situation of keeping her family along with the beloved horses together and safe. I have just begun this book, but the vivid characters are already pulling me in.
