This is...... my current reading material.

The Fatal Shore: An epic description of the brutal transportation of thousands of men women and children to Australia. Written by Robert Hughes and VERY interesting.
Saknaden efter Josef: A crime novel by Elizabeth George. Only into the second chapter.....
Back issues of Living at Home: I'm trying to cull my magazine collection so I am reading back copies and cutting out the bits I want to keep. This German mag has such great design ideas and lots of inspiration for me.
Amy Butler's little stitches for little ones: 20 keepsake sewing projects for baby and 'mom.' Great and easy to follow patterns. I've made two things so far - bibs and a little dress. Mum has the dress because she is using her new fangled machine to put the buttons on. My old machine is totally annoying when it comes to button holes!
Organic Vegetable Gardening: By Annette McFarlane. Speaks for itself and I can totally recommend it if you are interested in this topic. Has chapters on climatic influence, starting out, propagating and saving seeds, pest control and an A to Z of vegetables with everything you need to know to grow them.
And, I didn't photograph them, but what I am actually reading most of at the moment is children's books. Especially 'Baby Animals' and 'Baby 123.' Sick of the sight of them to be honest..... but I read them with enthusiasm because I have the best audience in the world.

Thanks to 'My Champagne Dreams' for this week's theme.
