Continuing the quilting…
This is the second novel in Rollins’ Sigma Force series. I’m slowly being drawn into this Dan Brown meets Indiana Jones type series. Rollins mixes action, intrigue, and history with liberal doses of the paranormal to keep me coming back. This novel deals with the bones of the Three Wise Men and as the title intimates, maps to mysteries of priceless antiquities.
I wish Rollins’ character development had been as detailed as his historical descriptions, but alas action won out. Nevertheless the plot was so intricate and twisted, I found it an enjoyable read and plan to continue with the next in the series.
I have slowed down with my crochet projects the last several years as I have delved into quilting. But there will always be a special place in my hobby heart for crochet. I’ve had numerous requests over the years to provide patterns for my Afghan designs. That’s always been somewhat difficult as I tend to create as I move along in the afghan (rather like free motion quilting).
However, with Tunisian crochet, the effort becomes a little easier by using graphs. I designed my first afghan based on quilt blocks back in 2009. I wanted to crochet a copy of a quilt I designed…just to see if I could do it. It actually went quite well and I learned a lot as I progressed through the afghan.
