‘I really liked the references to other books. Having read lots of them, it added a new dimension to reading the story and understanding the characters.’
Our next book club meeting will be online only. Our next book is Celia Rees’s This is Not…

http://instagram.com/p/XGHKsEzfAv/ When time is so precious and work is talking over, it is very easy to stop doing the things that you love but that are not essential to your day-to-day life. For me, crafting has always been something that I love but not something that I need. So it has been something I have… Continue reading Bird for the Soul
With all that I have on my plate at the moment, something has had to give. It makes me sad that this something is crafting. The last thing I crafted was the embroidery I sewed for our sew make believe lucky dip present and that was only because I had to (although I was so glad… Continue reading Losing my Crafting Mojo
