Bombay Time by Thrity Umrigar

This would have been a good book to share with a book discussion group, or literary class. The story unfolds in a leisurely manner. It starts with who I think it is the main character, but by the end I was immersed in "Bombay Time" and all of its characters.  It's one of those stories that are small and huge at the same time.

As I waited for the plot to unfold, I was caught up in the lives of the tenants of Wadia Baug. Not much happened and so much happened. There is a plot but it is not a fast-paced plot. In the course of an evening, we have attended a dinner party, but we have also seen this how everyone else arrived at that time and place If you're looking for an action story this is not the book for you. If you want to understand people and be temporarily immersed in a different culture, this book is perfect.

Stitch 30: Long Tail Chain, plain beaded and whipped

This is not a good photo. When I finish this one, I'll give it a good damp stretch and take some decent photos. I do have some tension problems, both with and without a hoop, so I suppose there will still be some puckering.

For the Love of Meat by Jenny Jaeckel

I don't know what to say about this book. It certainly held my attention as I zipped through it in one evening. The stories seemed never to go quite or are expected. That's a good thing. Unfortunately, none of them stands out in my memory in any way. Can't blame the author for this because I have a typical ADD attention span and I was also reading another book at the same time which was also a rather quirky short story collection. I liked it enough to know all reread it at some point.
