I know its been a while since I posted but I've just not felt like it, I don't know if its the sudden change in the weather or the time of year or even that the schools are back and I need to get up early again but my oooomph has been AWOL for the past few weeks...but its back now with a vengence!
I'm crocheting like theres no tomorrow, or at least I was until tonight...it might stop now theres no Big Brother for me to watch (and yes I shed a lot of tears at the very end).
I'm still working on my hexies and I think I've got about 60 now, although I'll probably leave them for now and take yarn to do more of them when i go on holiday next month.
I'm working on some scarves at the moment and I'm toying with the idea of opening an Etsy store too.
I saw some scarves that look almost identical in everything but colour to mine for sale on Etsy for the equivalent of £19...OMG £19 for a crocheted scarf!!!
After my last post I had a lot of people asking me about the books I'd read by Philippa Gregory and I can whole heartedly recommend them.
I picked up 'The White Queen' on my way to bed at about midnight one night and sat down for a few seconds to read the back of it... I was still sat there reading at 4.20am.
'The Other Queen' was a really good read too told in the first person from three different points of view.
Emily Purdy's 'The Tudor Wife' was good but not brilliant and it had some cringe inducing turns of phrase in it.
Since then I've read 'A Respectable Trade' which was great and such an eye openerabout the slave trade of the 18th century and am currently reading 'The Virgin's Lover' both by Philippa Gregory.
My only complaint with any of the books I've read recently is that because they're based on so much fact I end up spending hours browsing Wikipedia reading endless historical facts and then of course dragging out my inumerable heavy history books to double check and cross reference.
Have a lovely weekend.
