I’ve been reading some good books lately – the most recent is a wonderful book by Lucy Mangan called Bookworm – a memoir of childhood reading. I was slow to learn to read as a sickly child but once I got it, there was no stopping me and I really loved Enid Blyton.
There’s lots of bad press for Enid nowadays but I will always be grateful for her introducing me to the complete delight of losing oneself in a book.
All very lovely but it has cramped my crocheting on the bus! So now I’m back to listening to someone reading to me thanks to Audible and crocheting lots of flowers to make silly bunting.
There are loads of patterns for this type of thing, I started following a pattern and then started changing it to suit my preference for bigger or smaller petals… The wobbly eyes are stuck on with UHU and I use a gel by Dovecraft for drawing on the grins.
All for sale in my Etsy shop.
Thanks for reading,
back next week
