Yesterday I talked about Spring decorating and what the wool pillows on my couch represented….and right away Rita figured it out….they are the wool tartan clan plaid from Outlander…the Mckenzie Clan plaid of Jamie’s Mother…here is a photo of him wearing it…See I know think you want your own pillows…right?….now If you are interested in history and a good story I strongly suggest the Outlander series of books and at least the show on STARZ or DVD to catch the last 3 seasons…I mostly listened to them on audio tape so I could still stitch and would really wake up run to my sewing room so I could get back in the story….Here is a little blurb to get you interested…
Outlander (Cross Stitch in the UK) is the first in the OutlanderSeries of novels by Diana Gabaldon. The book focuses on two main characters, Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser, and takes place in Scotland in the 18th and 20th centuries.
While Outlander follows a few basic tropes of the romance novel, it deviates from them just as often, and could be accurately described as a work of historical fiction, science fiction, and adventure, among other genres. Diana Gabaldon has asserted that the series as whole is the story of a long, successful marriage, so while Outlander certainly involves the typical courtship story of a romance novel, it is the only installment of the series to do so.
Now…I’m warning you this is addicting… so…if you need hours of entertainment to get that stitching done this is it…and remember…Audio so you can still work on your stitching at the same time!!!! …Click HERE to get yours now…. this is the 1st book in the series…and the narrator Davina Porter is awesome too!!
My crazy cousin Mary got me hooked on Outlander AND she is the one who bought me those lovely wool plaid pillows that started this whole thing…we have lots of fun…hours of conversations about the books…and maybe a trip to Scotland…
Have a great day everyone!!
