Two people I've to thank for lovely presents from overseas are, Lucie the Happy Quilter, who sent me a lovely thread keeper and my penfriend B from Cornwall who gave me some lovely tea towels and fridge magnets from the Kirstie Allsopp range. She knows I think KA is entertainment plus.
|My lovely gifts.|
My reading matter at the moment is quite light. I've a few magazines and a lovely book. I try not to buy much in the way of magazines anymore, but some just call me. Two I can't resist and luckily bi-monthly, are, Landscape and Landlove. The other shown is Mollie Makes Home. I've read this from cover to cover. In the past I've bought 2 copies of Mollie Makes and then handed over to my daughter. I've far too many quilt/craft magazines so try not to even look, but every now and then something catches my eye. I don't always come away with it, but sometimes I do.
I am reading a great gardening book, shown below. I also finished one I showed in an earlier post and loved it too bits. That one was My Cool Allotments.
They are dropping quickly and going quite brown on the edges due to the heat.
It is 4.30pm here in Warragul and 36 deg (hot), but hubby says that at the cricket being held in Melbourne, the temperature has just dropped from 35 deg to 23 deg in 10 minute so the cool change is on the way. Bad thing is that the wind is gusting at 91 kmph, which is not good if there are any fires about. They've also had to bring out heavier bales to go on the wickets. Yes, I do like my cricket, but I've been busy doing other things as well.
All for now, so take care and enjoy your weekend.
