So I started to reread a series by Julie Kaewert. When I started the series I had read the last book first and the first book last. So now I am reading them in the proper order! The main character is legally blind without his glasses so I can understand that. The character also has thousands of books and owns a publishing company. The books are called "A Booklover's Mystery" and all the titles start with UN. The first book is Unsolicited. It is a really good mystery series!
I did get the Kanzashi Flower finished and made it into a hair clip. The second petal row is made with a small checked gingham fabric and the size 6 pearlized off white seed beads are sew to the center. The beads cover the petal ends and also help prevent raveling.
