Teaser Tuesday.

Teaser Tuesday ----- let your current read fall open and choose two sentences from lines 7 -12 and copy them.
My quote is from 'Innocent Traitor' by Alison Weir. page 230. not lines 7-12 I'm afraid .

'Mrs. Ellen helps me with the clasp, and then stands back to see the effect. But as I gaze at my reflection in the candle-lit mirror, I am startled by the stark image that confronts me, for in the flickering light the red stones look disconcertingly like gouts of blood around my neck.'

I'm glad you didn't stick to the lines 7-12 rule. That teaser is very intriguing.

Zetor, I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to add you to my blogroll, I've been meaning to ever since you came by with your first comment. so you are added today, and I've read through some of your posts and am very delighted with your blog. Some day we are going to have to chat about cooking and cook books, and I quilt too (sewing of a kind), but right now I a) have to go get dinner (speaking of cooking...) and b) young ones are lining up to use the computer, and I can hardly wait to get our second computer!!! so I'll be back again!
