Lots of nice reading

I just want to say that I'm so grateful for all your comments, they mean such a lot and are so appreciated. Thank you also all for your kind wishes for Hubby - he's on the mend and hoping to be back at work next week!

Yesterday I read Rosie's post at rosiepblog.blogspot.co.uk and noticed that she had bought the very magazine which I'd thought about buying. I couldn't decide between the two and couldn't really justify buying them both so I opted for this new magazine for the summer.



I think it's a very good buy and includes lots of 'good ideas' featuring clothes and fashion, glamorous beauty updates, a brilliant menu planner and some clever touches to stamp your own personality on your home as well as a section on gardening about growing your own food. This is the summer edition and it looks like there will be four a year.


Off to my sister B's today for a lunch and a crafty afternoon and hope make a start on something nice and vintage-y, armed with my stash of material and these lovely books I've had as gifts or bought for myself..


I should find something - shouldn't I?

    1. Thankyou Marina. I must be honest I have all these books but it's very hard to decide exactly WHAT to make! It's fun browsing though

  3. 'Good Ideas' looks like an interesting magazine, Patricia. I'll have to have a peek inside when I see one on the supermarket shelves. Hope you enjoyed your 'crafty' afternoon:)
