Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.
Yes, off the floor! It's huge and the floor had to be my design wall.
It is now numbered and pinned and some of the squares have been stitched.
But now the cathedral window cot quilt is my top priority.
I've decided that my hexagon scrappy quilt is never going to progress if I don't double up on my fabric selection. (Hey I might even triple up or quadruple it.) So I've taken that up again at night. Hopefully this way progress will not only be quicker but I'll get to use up more of my scraps.
There's been no progress on my French General quilt top or the Dragonfly Japanese Fabric one.
It's been a long while since I've linked to WIP Wednesday.
Why don't you drop by and visit Lee at Freshly Pieced?
Shutter priority, ISO 200, 2.5 second shutter speed.
Used the tripod with two second delay and quickly added myself to the photo. I moved around while the shutter remained open - this almost made me transparent but that depends on how much movement occurs. I think that the more movement there is, the more transparent the object becomes.
Fall of Giants, by Ken Follett is the first book in The Century Trilogy.
Mr Honey Pie gave this to me as a Christmas gift and I'm loving it.
Prior to this book I'd been reading Jane Austen's Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice and had to complete them before tackling this tome. I'm afraid that I have to confess that I'd never read these two classics before and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed them.
I'm presently revelling in Follett's novel.
He turns the First World War into a personal affair and reveals to the reader the behind-the-scenes of the war at the basic level without over-simplification.
Five families, from all walks of life are intertwined in an uncomplicated narration.
Follett is very clever at weaving definition into the story line.
He teaches the reader the intricacies of a variety of cultures, national policies, and social classes with ease.
I'm finding that Follett doesn't bother himself with flowery vocabulary or emotional nuances.
He is concerned with facts though and cleverly intertwines history into the lives of fictional characters of an ugly war.
I'm finding that he explains the rationale of World War One better than any text book I've encountered.
