1. Read: I finished the book group choice - Road to Damascus. It wasn't a great read. It was all too disjointed and badly written. It'll be interesting to see what book group makes of it. My bath time read devoured was: Until you're mine - by Samantha Haynes. A great thriller. Just don't read it if pregnant. I have two more books on the go: The Girl on The Train is on my kindle currently and for bath time reading I've started The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood.
2. Made: Still need to do the binding for the Amsterdam Quilt. However, I have done making of a different kind - jewellery making. A couple of bracelets bought ages ago in a Fat Face Sale and a silver toggle clasp and I have a new necklace.
4. My Garden/Flowers: It's rained a bit this week so the flowers and weeds are growing at a pace.
5. Eaten: Cheese scones. Made last Friday whilst Chief was travelling down for the weekend.
6. Visited/Seen: Chief and I took a trip to Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetland Trust. They have all 6 species of flamingo's there as well as lots of other birds - many of which you can get very close to. I loved the Nene geese the best. These are the rarest geese in the world - originally from Hawaii and so lovely. Sweet faces. Totally fell in love. I won't bore you with a tonne of pictures but you can find more on flickr if you're interested.
How can you not love these geese?!
8. Stash: In 0 Out 0 Well at least I haven't bought any more fabric to add to the stash!
9. Birds: See number 6 above - although on the trip to Slimbridge and the stroll Chief and I had the next day means my bird list for the year is up to: 90!
10. And finally...I really would be interested in hearing what you all feel about these posts and whether I should continue with them and blogging. I know a lot of people will say they blog for them so continue if I want to. However, I started blogging as it was the done thing becoming part of this sewing community. I used to really enjoy it. I used to enjoy the interaction with other bloggers and being part of a community that I hoped would encourage get togethers offline, as well as on. Sadly I don't feel connected in the same way and haven't for some time. A lot of people have cut down on their own blogging and blog reading has become limited to those in their immediate cliques. I'm even wondering if I stop blogging whether I'll become more creative. Lots to think about.
