My children had some friends round for tea today, which meant that my company wasn't needed - this might seem like the perfect opportunity to fit in a few extra hours of sewing, but such is the absorbing nature of stitching that I don't feel as though I remain a responsible adult with a sewing machine pedal underfoot. There's every possibility that I might delay feeding the children until they are lain strewn about the house light-headed with hunger or distractedly agree to them playing cricket indoors, oblivious to the sound of shattering glass. So instead I cleaned out my kitchen cupboards: happily re-ordering my bulging collection of herb teas and making the pans sit nicely in their drawers, temporarily reunited with their lids.
This impromptu fit of housekeeping seems to have overflown out of the kitchen and on to the computer, for this evening I have found myself overhauling my 'I like to read...' list in my sidebar (eyes right and then scroll down a little). I still like to read all the blogs that were on there, but I've recently discovered so many new ones - or never listed some of my favourites - that I thought I might change things round a little and share some new lovelies (There are so many things that I want to put in my sidebar, that I try to limit myself to 30...which is why I don't just keep on adding to it...even though it pains me to have to edit it).
If you have a few minutes to spare then do go visiting - they are mostly quilting and dressmaking blogs, with one or two foodie blogs thrown in there too (because one has to eat in between the stitches).
I would love it if you would share some of your own favourites too - it's always a treat to discover new ones.
