For a bit more direction in August I plan to participate in Austen in August.

The Truth about Melody Browne

I am only half way through The Truth about Melody Browne by Lisa Jewell, but am enjoying it. I got it from a neighbour who was culling her books. I expected chick lit and it might be in a way, but while there is a romantic interest, that is not what the book is about. After reading the latest Bridget Jones earlier this year, I find this one a much better read for me.

Back to reading

I am currently back to reading.

Right now I am reading one Antia Blake after the other, but I am looking Forward to picking something very different for the next read from my TBR stacks.

I love the idea of reading books with summery allusions in the title as in this challenge.

More Criss Cross in Orange

First things first: I won a lovely gingerbread ornament at Yvonne W. Thank you Yvonne, they are too cute!

This shows you what I wanted to sew next once I was done with the orange madness (and possibly the classic brother's blue top). But then I made a strategic mistake: I showed Betacarotin to MyGuy, fully knowing he loves orange. Well, no, you cannot have the one I have finished (because it is a concept art for both brothers), so what is a wife to do? I started cutting and sewing another 117 blocks of Crisscross Applesauce. This time the center 4 patches will be green. One block done so far...
