I've had my head in quite a few books just lately!
Do share them with me!
Last week, my daughter Helen gave me this
wonderful read, for my birthday:
'One fine summer's morning the sun peeped over the hills
and looked down upon the valley of Silverstream'
Miss Buncle's Book by D.E.Stevenson
Published by Persephone, it's fabulous and
I really do recommend it!
All Persephone books have these beautiful endpapers .
This one is taken from, 'Flower vase lit by rays from a table lamp',
a screen printed cotton and rayon design
by Vanessa Bell for Allan Walton Textiles in 1934.
I've finished Miss Buncle's book...in truth, I couldn't put it down!
So what to read next?
Sitting by my bedside, waiting patiently to be opened
I'm about a third of the way through this and
trying to enjoy it at bedtime!
(Or do I mean that it is rather trying at bedtime?!)
It sends me to sleep..or is that cruel?!!
I think my next read will have to be something
a little more light hearted.
Before Miss Buncle, I read this:
the Cornish postie.
A good and easy read.
Now then...moving on and
taking pride of place in my kitchen at the moment is:
This is a fabulous book and I really recommend it..
half price on Amazon at the moment !
Another birthday book, this one from Nich ,
is sitting in my craft room and I dip into it whenever new fabrics
arrive through my letter box...just to see if my fabrics are featured
or ... are very rare!
And needs no introduction!
I have to mention this book, below, because..
I love this book so much that I have ordered the 'sequel'...
And the fabrics..well they've had to take a back seat just lately
with all that's been going on in my life but I have a lovely selection
to show you as soon as they have all arrived!
