 I loved this book. I was hooked from the very beginning. Such a lovely story both heartbreaking and heartwarming in the same measure. The diary written in shorthand that could only be understood by Pearl was a wonderful touch. I loved how the story unfolded and really enjoyed reading about each of the characters. A very powerful and touching read. Brilliant.

I couldn't put this book down. It was thrilling from beginning to end. The twists and turns from when the bodies were found to near the end when the book and a letter were found in the fireplace. You just never knew what was going to happen next. Sometimes you have an inkling as to what happened but not this time. It was an incredibly written plot which made for a compelling read. Absolutely brilliant.

 Finished my floral bouquet quilt.  Was hoping to have it long arm quilted but that didn't happen so I took it apart and quilted it myself using the quilt-as-you-go technique.  I am thrilled with it and it lies on the bed beautifully.  My lockdown UFO is now complete.

This is a design from One Wonderful Curve which uses the larger of the two curve rulers but I reduced the size of the quilt by using the smaller curve ruler. Just to be quilted.

Easter Fabric Bowl

I took a photograph of an Aquilegia in my garden, printed it on fabric to make this fabric bowl.  I think it is just right for Spring and especially nice for Easter eggs.  Happy Easter.

Kaleidoscopes are so addictive

I love playing with kaleidoscopes.  I think this one is particularly nice.  I love the colours and the shapes are nice too.
