So, I was talking to my sister yesterday morning about Yarn Along which was started by Ginny at Small Things and how it has been the perfect impetus to get into my needles and yarn...only trouble is, it's created a monster....a crocheting monster of many projects that are flying off the needle at lightning speed.
It's a very good monster to say the least but I find I am actually a whole project behind now with posting on Yarn Along. Yes, this is the project I worked on this week and the book I read, but I also did much more which will have to wait to be shown next week....all of this is exciting because it means there is a finished project photo to go with this week's yarn along.
In reading we are on our first ever chapter book, Ava Grace and I. She's been begging me to start a chapter book for her and I thought this one that belonged to my mummy when she was a little girl would be a good choice. I explained to Ava about how she would have to make up the pictures in her head and she assured me she was already really good at this so off we went.
We're about 4 chapters into it and it's a lovely story I remember reading when I was small, about a young girl named Penny who loves ponies and makes friends with a little gypsy girl while visiting her stuffy Aunt. The success of reading aloud thus far has already made me excited enough to snap up all sorts of chapter books when I was at the thrift store on the weekend. (can't wait until we reach the age and stage of Laura Ingalls Wilder!)
