This is going to be a bit of a mixed blog – for sewing, gardening and reading.
Where did April Go. It’s May 1st and the weather is inclement still, although I took advantage of a pleasant day on Sunday to clean the pond out. Another job ticked off the gardening to-do list.
Onto the sewing, I have finished the “Jane Austen Quilt” top, removed the paper pieces, batted and backed. Really pleased with this.
This is previous photo (as I forgot to photograph the completed quilt when I laid it out on the bed). I have absolutely no idea how I am going to quilt this yet.
I have also been beavering away at my Sophia Loren cross stitch and have made the decision not to do all the pattern. Here is a photo of where I am at the moment.
Now onto my current reading material. I really like Phiippa Gregory as an author, her writing is profound, well researched and her characters are almost tangible in their happiness, grief, life and death etc. This is a trilogy that I am reading and have completed the first book, Tidelands and now I am nearly finished the second book – Dark Tides and then onto the last book – Dawnlands.
I have also been reading “Miss Benson’s Beetle” which was a thoroughly entertaining book. Rachel Joyce is another author that I really admire and creates very believable characters. Sometimes cried, sometimes guffawed out loud. Jolly Good Read,
Well that is me, thanks for reading, take care.
One thought on “MayDay Monday”
Those books Look very interesting! Your Jane Austen has turned out beautifully. I struggle with how to quilt special things too.
