progress & memming
I finished sewing on all the trim with gold sequins on the edge of the skirt last night - woot!

And since I'm in the mood: (taken from everyone!)

Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.

1. The Bible
2. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
3. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis
4. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
5. The Queen's Necklace by Frances Mossiker
6. Carry On Mr Bowditch by Jean Lee Latham
7. Seven Men Who Rule the World From the Grave by Dave Breese
8. Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer by James L. Swanson
9. The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder
10. To the Scaffold by Carolly Erickson
11. Failure is not a Option by Gene Kranz
12. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
13. Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
14. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling
15. The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara

oh, To the Scaffold is a good one. And I think it's funny that nearly everyone has Jane Eyre on their list!

Wow, you've got some *really* good stuff on there. I've read 9 out of your 15, and of the remaining 6, I either know what they're about and/or have been intending to read them myself (7, 11, and 13). (And Killer Angels is *fantastic*.)

Thanks!

Is it any wonder we are LJ friends? :P

I know I actually just re-read the Killer Angels this week (audio book while I was sewing) - I'd forgotten just how good it was. I hadn't forgotten the impact it (and the film) made on me in JR high though... :P

Heh, no wonder at all! :) *checks* Hmm.. we're not mutual friends. Are you able to see anything on my journal? I forget how this friends-only stuff works.

It's been way too long since I've read it, although it's *been* read at least 5 or 6 times since junior high. I think I saw it in my brother's room last week. I remember seeing the film when it came out - I was 10! I think my mom found and read the book first, and told me it was awesome. *sigh*

We're not? Opps - thought we were. Sorry about that - all fixed now! And yes I could see your locked posts, you just couldn't see mine. My LJ is mostly public anyway... :P

Oh - no wonder! Hee! At least now we're both on the same page. :D
