Yay! It's Friday!

It's been a quick week here. Lot's of good stuff! 
Monday night it was book club and we discussed this book. 

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand 
by Helen Simonson
Loved it!  All the girls loved it too. Everyone gave it 2 Thumbs up.

Here's a quick "back-of-the-book" description:
Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired) leads a quiet life in the village of St. Mary, England, until his brother's death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village. Drawn together by their shared love of literature and the loss of their respective spouses, the Major and Mrs. Ali soon find their friendship blossoming into something more. But will their relationship survive in a society that considers Ali a foreigner?

Wednesday night we had dinner here. Amazing food! Amazing service! I had the Butternut Enchilada. YUM!
Of course there is work everyday and in between all the fun I have picked up my needles and hooks again. 

My newest enthusiasm... Granny Squares! 
I'm not sure what it is about them but I love them! 
Easy, portable... whatever! 
Love doing them!

Hubs says he thinks I'm racking up a body count! LOL .... 
I think he may be right. 

I was working on this little project but I had to set it aside. 
It's just to hot right now. 
I'm calling this The Yummy Summer Sunshine Afghan. 
It will go to Sweet Daughter later this fall.

 This one probably will to. 
I'm calling it The Stained Glass Afghan. It reminds me of the old 
stained glass windows that you used to see in big churches.

That's the week in review. 
I LOVE the weekend!

I love those squares. I ordered something similar from Etsy for coasters.

I've been meaning to read this book too.
