However, on to the important stuff, I have two stitched creations to share with you today, both from the wedding of my brother-in-law two weekends ago! The weather was not as nice as it was this weekend, but it was dry, which is the main thing. I made two samplers - one for a frame and one as a scented hanging.
I would like to enter these stitches into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday - Ombre (Variegated threads create an ombre effect)
The Male Room #84 Anything but a card (The top one is the more masculine for the two of them)
Simply Create Too #138 Anything but a card
I also have a book review to share with you:
Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty
Yvonne is a very successful, middle-aged lady whose knowledge about genetics is widely sought after. When she starts an unexpected affair, she has no idea where this will lead her…or how much it will change her life. She knows very little about the man she is having an affair with and chooses to ignore a lot in order to keep this completely separate from her personal life.
The story starts in the courtroom and tells the story bit by bit from Yvonne’s perspective, both past and present, to explain what happened and also give some insight into the people that have been involved, and what might have caused things to lead to the courtroom. The story keeps you guessing, but it is difficult to think that somebody so intelligent could be quite so naïve. I did enjoy reading the story, and I would really like to watch the film that goes with it.
Thanks for reading,
