Thanks for popping in. It's a while since I have managed to find five things for a Friday, life's just been like that. Today though I offer you these, whilst I hope that you are all well and enjoying life.
1. Did you hear Women's Hour yesterday? I just caught one article as I returned from the shops in the car and had to sit in the garage for a bit until it had finished! Sue Brown, Printmaker, Louise Asher and Liske Johnson came up with the idea of creating a community project called Same Sea, Different Boat during the strange non-motivating days of Covid-19 to boost crafters and to get them to describe their life during coronavirus. They asked them to make a 10 cm x 10 cm collagraph print to be stitched on, which would be made into a quilt. Here are a few links, here and here to her blog with all the information on how to make one and join in too if you like. It's looking really good so far.
2. Our last week of Eating Out to Help Out resulted in another tasty pub lunch plus a countryside walk. I'm not sure we'll carry on having the lunches every week or my waistline will get far too big but we have discovered some nice places to go now and again and hopefully helped them out as well.
3. I have a stack of books, THIS HIGH, to read with another couple on the list as they are due out in September. Thank you Miss CK for the Happiness you gave me. I'm back in 1536 with Thomas Cromwell with The Mirror and the Light having just reread the previous Wolf Hall books.
5. You may remember my poor teapot that flew off the table and broke, well here is its pretty replacement. Thank you Mr CK.
