We’ve been away again, and although this blanket travelled to Devon for a night and then to Cornwall for three, it came home without being touched. Too many places to visit and things to see! Since returning on Sunday evening I felt itchy-fingers keen to add a row or two, and found it a good way to relax yesterday. Life is very busy at the moment; I’m surrounded by flattened boxes, parcel tape and notebooks full of lists….
As for reading; I’ve just borrowed Dear Lupin by Roger Mortimer, a racing journalist, from the library. It’s the entire collection of letters he wrote to his son Charlie, over 25 years. I hadn’t heard of it before but a quick flick through showed it would be a funny and warm read. For the last few days I’ve been thoroughly enjoying The Summerhouse by the Sea by Jenny Oliver. I bought it on my Kindle while away in Falmouth. It’s perfect summer reading; well written with interesting characters and location. If you like Jenny Colgan, you’ll enjoy Jenny Oliver’s style too.
If you’d like to share what you’re making and reading every Wednesday too, leave a link in the comments. Don’t forget to link back to this post on your blog, and use #yarningalong on social media, so others can find us and join us in Yarning Along.

This weeks read!
Your blanket is really turning out fantastic! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
Thank you Teresa!
I always think I’ll do lots of crafting on holiday, but it often doesn’t happen!
I didn’t enjoy Dear Lupin, and actually gave up reading it. Not my thing at all. But I shall look up Jenny Oliver as I am currently on a Jenny Colgan binge!
5* for the J.O, so good for a light summery read.
