- Piecing together of the hexies has started, I have decided to make some bright funky cushions for my family room sofa.
- A self sown Cosmos is bringing some much needed colour to my garden as well as much enjoyment for the bumble bees.
- I'm currently midway through sewing a dress for myself. This one has required me to hunt out the sewing machine instruction booklet and my button hole foot. These were my practice ones.
- From my never decreasing reading pile. I have just finished A Well Behaved Woman, the story of Alva Vanderbilt and have now just started American Duchess, the story of her daughter Consuelo Vanderbilt. It is quite amazing reading about Alva's life, in someways they were very much restrained by society's expectations of what was proper for a female, and in other's they did a lot to further women's health and rights. Both these are fiction, but very enjoyable reads.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
