We interrupt this program............
This lady is not a follower. Nope, I have my own drum and love beating it to my own rhythm. For the past 4 years, my local Grand Daughter has been begging me to read Harry Potter. I had no desire to read it or even watch the movies. There were quite a few of my acquaintances reading, watching, knitting and crocheting everything HP. I just didn't see the thrill in it and could not understand what all the hoopla was about.
A few weeks ago, the local Grand told me she found the HP book set in the "American" version. It was reasonably priced too. I bought it. Don't get upset about me going for the 'American" version. Reading UK books is not really an issue for me. I have done it numerous times. My line of thinking was..................if I am going to read 7 books in a series, I want to get through them quickly and be done with it. (I know, poor attitude)
Well, wouldn't you know it.................I completed book 1 in just a couple of days (I only read at bedtime). Book 2 has been started and I am completely hooked! Hubby is now reading book 1 and seems to be enjoying it too. I get it now! Yup, a little bit of a 'late to the party' person but at least I made it.
Now, I am perusing google to find HP patterns for different things to make. Not for me, but for the local Grand who is still loving all things HP. Maybe a scarf or some mitts or a wall hanging................the possibilities are endless.
Until Next Time.............................happy crafting Muggles!
