Garden Party Day again. My the weeks do fly past. My Mother used to say .... don't wish your life away, it goes too quickly when you get older. This was usually said to me when I was counting the days to a birthday or Christmas.
This week 2 Asian Cousins
I have been busy preparing
The Scot has been busy too
These were the same as I make to put Australian Tea Bags in, when enclosing a tiny gesture with my swaps.
The weather has been beautiful these past few days and I have been sitting outside on the swing seat, sewing and reading.
I have finished The Silent Governess~Julie Klassen. A really excellent read. And I will be looking for more books by Julie Klassen, I really like her style of writing.
So now onto a new book. I thought I would read A Thousand Splendid Suns~Khaled Hosseini. I read The Kite Runner by the same author and was totally enraptured. A Thousand Splendid Suns is proving to be the same.
oh btw did I tell you how I love my Kindle.
This is the Postcard received from Thea in 4x6ers PostCard Swap. The theme this month monochromatic.
Its amazing isn't it - how we all interpret the theme.
and finally a rethink on the Quilt for P. Whilst the golden clamshells is perfect, I began to think it was getting a bit suffocating. So I think I may try brown, very dark hopefully a tone on tone. But this is a mockup in black.
