No stitching - just setting myself up to stitch. It started with seeing that they were comparing Gone Girl to The Girl On The Train. I got the Gone Girl audiobook from the library and I thought it was dull till I hit the halfway point, then the shoe dropped, and I loved it. The Girl on a Train ebook was just $7, and I decided to get it, and for another $7, you could add the audiobook. Fine - include the audio, and I will get it listened to much sooner. It took me three days. Then I decided to see if I could add the audiobooks to my other ebooks - and I did for $1 - $4 on 5 ebooks. Then I started looking thru the library audiobooks. I could get those free and just convert them off as mp3's and set up my audiobook stash for stitching. And after two weeks, I have added over 60 audiobooks, probably more, into my audiobook stash. I even got to listen to a book while doing it. I listened to Penny Marshall's book. I could have spent $4 for the ebook and added audio total, but it got sort of mixed reviews. But my library had the audiobook. So I got it and it was interesting. Getting Penny Marshall voice reading the book to me was nice, but it did take a few days to get that whine nasal voice out of my head again. And a free library audiobook was nicer to listen to than if I had paid the $4. My audiobook stash is now a wide range of authors and topics.
So I am set - and ready to stitch again. And Tuesday is $5 movie day, and we are going to see Far From The Maddening Crowd.
And has everybody seen the cover of the Sampler and Antique Needlework latest issue? Part one - yep, gonna have to find that... and already want part two... ahhh, learning to wait....
