Flying the Coop

Do you know when you pick up a book and you just know.....? You just know that it will be one of those books that keeps you up late and makes dinner and the washing nigh on impossible to do!!!!!

I picked up Ilsa Evans' book 'Flying the Coop' this morning at the library and although I only managed to read about 20 pgs while waiting for my daughters school choir to perform, I knew! I did not wish to appear rude so put it away at the start of the performances but I could hear it in my handbag calling to me! Tragic I know. I read a lot and I enjoy a wide variety of books but it is not often that I read one I simply CAN'T put down.

I have read Ilsa Evans' other books and I always forget how much I enjoy her stories between readings. Her characters are real and her sense of humour, particularly around family life is superb. I also like that they are set in Australia and therefore all the more real for me.

Enough waffling on...I have books things to do.

Hope you have a great week!

P.S. What makes you pick up a book? The cover of this one did it for me!!!

Crafting Dilemma

LincraftI bought the most beautiful, soft 100% bamboo yarn on the weekend which I am busting to start hooking into a face washer after seeing a picture that inspired me on Pinterest.

I am getting close to finishing my stripy knee rug with just a few more stripes to go I think, so I am not sure I should set it aside at this crucial moment...what if I become obsessed with bamboo yarn and I can't stop? I do find that I feel most creative when I am nearing the end of a project. My mind races towards what is next on my wish list of beautiful things to make.

Maybe I could just make one to see what it would look like...

Does anyone else have these dilemmas? Do you have multiple projects on the go?
Happy making to anyone who is gardening, cooking, sewing, knitting, hooking, etc this week or even if you are just cruising Pinterest for inspiration. Feel free to pop in and have a look at my boards.
