Sorry that I didn't update on Monday but the power brick for my laptop died and I've had to wait for the replacement to arrive. So here is a quick update, it wasn't a good week for crafting as Dave and Christopher went down with the lurgy.

Stitching - I only managed an hour of stitching all week on the Fruits of the Vine needlecase

Knitting - The socks didn't get worked on last week, but I managed to do a few rows on the Ishbel. The rows are so long now that I don't get more than one or two done at a time.

Sewing - I made a start on the Kaths Kubes that I bought at the Quilt Museum, I've got the freezer paper templates cut out & attached the fabric.

What I was doing last week was reading. I managed to finish two books, the last time I did this was when I was in hospital waiting for Christopher to arrive! It wasn't planned that way but both books were set around the First World War, one a novel written in the immediate aftermath of the war in 1918; Cicely Hamilton's William - An Englishman, the other Elizabeth Spellers The Return of Captain John Emmett which was published last year. I highly recommend both books.

Hope your family is feeling better. I've heard good things about The Return of Captain John Emmett and can't wait to read it.

Oh gosh, I sure hope everyone is feeling better now! I want to read the John Emmett book, but I'm not sure it's out in this country yet. So frustrating!

Best wishes to your men for a speedy recovery. I hope you'll find some time for your hobbies.
There's a lot going around at the moment, hope all is well by now. It's good to hear what other people are reading.
