Bits and Pieces

First of all my wee girl Na'uli has been really unwell this week but she is such a little darling. She hardly makes a peep, just lies quietly on the couch and sucks her thumb. Hoping she'll be better real soon.
Next I was excited to find out today that I have inspired another of my sisters to start blogging. Both Jen and Allie have their blogs up and running. More lovely mums creating homely homes, raising their beautiful children and providing wonderful life experiences for them. You've really started something now Clare!
Over the last few weeks I have rediscovered the library. I'm not a big reader but having seen some interesting looking books-mostly of the crafty type -while browsing other people's blogs I've started jotting them down. Then I get onto the online library catalogue, put a hold on the books, receive an email when they're available and zip down the road to pick them up. I've been doing lots of browsing and drooling over the projects but being the procrastinator that I am I haven't actually made anything                                                   
  Handmade Home                            Meet Me at Mikes                                 
Sew Darn Cute                        Sew!                            
The Creative Family
    Sew what! Skirts                  Bend the Rules Sewing
Amanda Blake Soule's book 'The Creative Family' was a major favourite, in fact it's the sort of book that I'd be dipping into all the time so would be well worth purchasing. I just looked on Fishpond (for the first time) to see if I could find it....looks like I might be visiting that site again.

  1. I keep meaning to comment on this post about The Book Depository -the books are generally cheaper than Fishpond and postage is free on All orders. We have used it a few times now and have been very happy. :)
    ps. Great books on your wishlist by the way!
