Alex has taken on the task of quilting and "decorating" the house. The quilting stitch is a bit wobbly, but good for a first effort by an 11 year old. Can't really say any more as she wants it to be a Christmas present for someone (sshhhhhh) Tonya - I'm really cross about the Gwen Marston book. I wanted to get it this last month (DH's private pension comes in quarterly), but the car had its pre MOT service which cost a fortune, as did the yearly car insurance. There may be a chance in October. However, we are going back to the UK for a family Christmas this year and I am hoping to get into Canterbury for some English retail therapy. I may get lucky in one of the many second hand book shops! I've just looked for it again on Amazon.fr. Are you ready for this - "neuf et d'occasion a partir de EUR 80.17". GULP!
