Sewing date and lunch with some lovely friends at my place. I almost got this quilt that I started at the beginning of last year finished, only about 20 cms of stitching the binding on to go and I'm embarrassed to say, it is still not finished! I put it down after the girls left because I had some school prep to do for the next day. Must. Finish!
The Bertie Blankie is going well, I am getting a bit more done most nights of the week. I'm getting close to being half way there and in even better news, I'm not yet bored of it!
The Block (the first reality TV show I've been sucked into, ever!)
The Riddick movies
Thor: The Dark World
The Gentleman Bastard Series, Books 2 and 3. If you like a bit of a fantasy/intrigue/con artist sort of thing this series by Scott Lynch is pretty great!! I found out about it via a review by one of my favourite authors, Patrick Rothfuss, on Goodreads. How exciting is it to see what your favourite authors like to read? He rated the first and second books with five stars so I thought I'd give it a go and I'm glad I did.
and now back on to the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I got book 13 for Christmas and it's the final in the series but I'm determined to reread them all before reading the last one so I am all up to speed and know exactly where everything has been left off. No missing important bits here just because I've forgotten them! I just started book 5 last night. Do you reread series when the next in the order comes out?

My pumpkin is looking more pumpkinly every day. Unfortunately only one flower was pollinated so there's only one pumpkin. My dad told me (way too late to do anything about it) that I should have pollinated the female flowers with the male flowers by hand but unfortunately I really am a gardening novice and had no idea there were female and male flowers on the same plant and just thought all the flowers should turn into fruit through immaculate conception. Clearly not. I will know better for next time a pumpkin plant decides to grow in my garden. Especially now that I have googled it and know how to do it and tell the two different flowers apart.
What exciting things have been happening in your world lately?
