and I'm ready to make another Dolly Clackett dress.
I've been playing tennis three times a week in 90 degree weather and don't have the energy left to do much sewing. I come home, hop into a cool shower, and read. This is what I just finished, and I highly recommend it:
From Amazon: In this rare insider’s view into contemporary North Korea, a high-ranking counterintelligence agent describes his life as a former poet laureate to Kim Jong-il and his breathtaking escape to freedom.
Since I was a teenager and read everything by Pearl S. Buck, I've been interested in China. Finally, during my graduate studies, I was able to spend some time there. However, when I went back again the amazing economic revival there disappointed me: much of the charm is gone now. So I have transferred my interest to North Korea. But of course I have absolutely no interest in going there. If you read this book, you won't, either!eta: My fabric.com order arrived yesterday, talk about quick customer service (of course they are headquartered about 10 miles from me). And I noticed a sticker: "Jackpot! You got the rest of the bolt!" So now maybe I have enough for a tennis skirt!
