A deer cushion, and more yarning along
This is a cushion that my best friend bought me this week. For some reason I have a "thing" about deer, and always become excited if I see anything deerish. in a charity shop, and am quick to snap it up.
So I was quite excited to get this lovely cushion as a present.
And it fits so perfectly on my crochet armchair.
On to the yarning along component of today's blog. I am becoming quite fond of these posts.
I'm linking in again with Ginny at Small Things' Yarn Along, .
I am making yet another stash bag to give to one of my sister in laws for Christmas. I have come up with an awesome idea, again inspired by Ginny, who is currently reading Anne of Green gables. One of my sister in laws loves those books, so I have found an etsy site which has Anne fabric. So I plan to buy some, then line the bag with it.
I was quite excited when I came up with that idea~!!
So this is the latest bag, along with my latest book, "Bertie Plays the Blues"
I am totally besotted with anything and everything Alexander Mccall Smith has ever written.
And this is his latest book, which I did not even know had been published, but which my lovely husband found in the local library this morning!!!
I was so excited, and am kind of amazed that I have even stopped reading it to write this blog!!
Alexander McCall Smiths' books are just so incredibly lovely, they are difficult to describe, but they have such lovely gentle characters, that you become so fond of.
Bertie Plays the Blues is part of the Scotland Street series, and it may not surprise you to know that when we went to Scotland last year, this was another pilgrimage I made!!
Walking, or rather sliding along the icy streets of Edinburgh in the early morning, on our last day before flying home, to make sure I found Scotland St, was one of my best memories of the trip.
And this last pic is something I picked up at a charity shop for $4.50 today. It is super cute and reminds me of my grandmother.
Sending lots of good wishes to everyone out there, and hoping your week is lovely, and that you are all being kind to yourselves
