A hike to the Post Office

It has been hot here today.  So it was a bit of a puff up the very steep hill to the Post Office to collect the mail from the post box.  It was well worth it though because waiting there for me were a couple of books that I have had on order (and I'm sure the exercise was good for me!)  They are both beautiful books.  The first is 'Simply Retro' by Camille Roskelley.

This is Camille's second book and I love it.  I have her first book (Simplify) which is also great.  I am enrolled in Camille's online quilting class at Craftsy which is called 'Pre-Cut Piecing Made Simple'.  It is great fun and, I can see that this new book has lots of projects in it which will help me practise the techniques I have learnt.

The second book which arrived today was 'Stitch Zakka'.  This book is a collection of projects by many of my favourite designers.  It is a lovely book and I'm going to enjoy looking through it and deciding what to make.

Hopefully I will have some quiet time to browse through both books this weekend.  Hope you all have something nice planned for the weekend too!


  1. I hope you enjoy reading your new books. Perhaps next time you stagger up to the post office, there might be some Birthday Pressies!!!


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. It is lovely to hear from you and very exciting to read what you have to say!!
