Over the weekend I managed to find some time to get my teeth into this book "The time traveller's wife" and now of course I'm finding it hard to put it down. I took Caitlin and her friend to the beach on Sunday afternoon and after a quick dip to cool me down I settled into reading while the girls played in the water and built sandcastles. I got a good chunk of it read and now I'm keen to see the film. I think it's always good to read the book before you see the film, as sometimes the film-makers get it right and sometimes they don't or leave bits out that change the story too much. Has anyone seen the film of this book? Was it as good as the book?
A sneaky peek of another project I worked on over the weekend using some yummy blues and greens. I have one more to make then I shall reveal all. I also managed to finish hand quilting my quilt and now have the binding ready to put on. The next couple of days are going to be busy in our house as tomorrow we have to lift up our old carpet ready for the new carpet to be laid on Thursday. Can't wait to have soft spongy carpet with no worn holes!
And in case you're wondering our baby quail died over the weekend :( I had gotten rather attached to it in the short time we were its surrogate family. We're not sure why it died, maybe the shock of what it had been through or an internal injury from the cat. It got lots of love in its last few hours of life though.
