I bought a Gail Pan table runner pattern a couple of weeks ago but couldn't find suitable fabric in my stash to make it. So what's a girl to do? Go to her local patchwork shop ofcourse! So yesterday I came home with some fabric .
The shop also sells wool so I was able to buy some to start knitting something warm for my grandson. He is now 12 weeks old.
In years gone by I have always read several books a year. There were times I read over 60 but I seem to be reading less and less each year. I know this because for decades I have kept a special journal listing every book I read year by year. It is quite interesting to see how the genres have changed over time and I can see what my special interests were at the time. Well, hanging my head in shame, I declare that I have just finished the first book for the year. Isn't that pitiful? I love Philipa Gregory's books which are all based on historical fact with fiction woven in. The author is actually a historian. I have read all her books in this series as well as many others over time. Trouble is, I can't fit it on my bookshelf with the others. No room!
The weather is rather dismal here so I am quite happy to sit and sew, knit and crochet.
