Review of this Week

This week has revolved around my first week of training at the fabulous Palmerston North City Library, and getting ready for my eldest son's 10th birthday - very exciting to be getting to double figures.
I love working at the City Library again - Come visit if you are in town.
The library also has wonderful events - highlight of my week was attending a talk by Peta Mathias about her newest book


She was as fabulous in person as she is in her TV programs - she was witty, enthusiastic, honest and articulate, and I am now 21st in the queue for her book at the library - thankfully they have more than 1 copy!
I have continued to stitch the charity quilt, and I have done a few more pages for my paper/stitch book.
Blogs that inspired me this week :

Another beautiful embroidery from Hanna

Had to share this great YouTube video - seen on a couple of blogs this week
Looking forward to some DVD watching this weekend - will share if they are worth it. Talk to you again soon

Hi Lynette
Thanks for the sweet comments on my recent journal page and thanks for the link. I love sewing on to pages and lots and lots of layers. The paper I used with all the loose fibers is called lace paper that I hand dyed.

The links you are sharing are wonderful - watching "How to be alone" while having some quiet time to myself was rather lovely!
