Monday evening, July 2nd the Olympic torch relay came through Leicester. It was passing by just up the road from where DH works so we went along to see it.
Here's the moment it passed by right in front of us - not a very good pic though!
Tuesday afternoon was the Book Borrowers group and this week one lady brought along a bunch of bags that she had sewed for us.
We had decided previously that it would be a good idea for one of us to put a book into each of the bags of an author that perhaps we had not read before and on the way out we would each pick up a bag and read the book that was inside.
My bag this week contained ....
I've never read Maeve Binchy so it'll be interesting to read this. This group is growing and becomming a nice friendly place.
Thanks for all your comments about Agatha Raisin and her adventures last post. I thoroughly enjoyed that book. We had a great discussion about her yesterday with lots of laughter about her 'funny ways' and things she got up to. I think i'll have to read a few more of her tales in the future.
Stitching is going on, but only slowly. The sampler for the winner of the 'Best in Show' at our Fruit and Veg show in September is progressing.
A frog visit though as it looks like i am going to have to take out the 'T' as it's just too far to the right...gggrrrr. The letters are 2 spaces apart but i have counted 2 from the blue at the bottom of the letter 'S' instead of 2 from the top and it is way too obvious that it's wrong.
Want to see a pic of the wrongness? Yes, of course you do, lol.
3 posts in a week i can hear you all saying, whats happened to Julie and her blog. The new 'all singing and dancing' computer we had a couple of months ago has developed a problem and it's going to the computer hospital to get better. Not sure when i'll be posting a blog post again. I'll still be able to read blogs and comment but just not upload any of my pics to mine.
Thanks for stopping by to read my wafflings.
