I managed to work on this a bit this past week. I didn't find a pattern I wanted to do with it, but I was enjoying playing with it. I have a couple more variations I want to try.
on the Updates blog
After being locked out of my own site for no-one-knows-why since May 17 (Posts after that date were written ahead.), I am finally back. YAY!! Hooray!!
I will have some updates on TAST, some studio journaling, and maybe a book report or two, but first I have to update the blog program. That may take a while because I'm not particularly knowledgeable about CSS and .php documents and there are a few things that won't correct themselves with an update and will require me to play around with stuff.
I am on a lifelong quest to be organized. It's apparently not a natural thing for me to be and it seems I just keep getting worse instead of better. I'd hate to think how bad I'd be if I weren't trying. I may post something about my progress, such as it is, but it's mostly housework that I'm working on, now. Not anything exciting. Once I get through a heavy annual cleaning, I do have some quilt/embroidery projects I hope to be working on.
This is a good story. I especially liked the chapters set in 1966 to 1969. It rings true to the time to me. I have a little difficulty with the chapters set in 2009. Bea seems to be older than she is and Lilli seems younger than she is. However, it's not unrealistic that that is really how they are. It's just that the people I know in their 70s seem younger and more alert than Bea and those around 50 seem more mature. Although this annoyed me, within the context of the story, it explains a lot. It's the only thing that makes sense with her reaction to Randall. Considering Lilli's age ind 1969and the short time she knew him, it seems unlikely that she would have continued to feel in 2009 as she did in 1969 unless she were immature.
Overall, the story is not unpleasant, and despite the little annoyances about Bea's and Lilli's ages I really did enjoy reading this.
