We are almost ready to go and so this will be my last post until 26 August.
But I have a couple of things to show you before I go:
Yesterday I received another fabric club instalment from Threadbear.
As usual, they are really lovely. I picked out my favourites - they are the five pieces at the bottom.
I love the green and yellow spot fabric. Can really see myself using that one as well as the yellow behind it.
I've been looking for some nice browns lately so chose the brown print behind the yellow and the brown with stars on the bottom.
And the reddish one? I'm always a sucker for red prints so this was a given.
Bury Your Dead....
If you remember I recently read The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny and felt a bit disappointed with the ending. There seemed to be something missing. Well it's now all been revealed in the novel Bury Your Dead.
The novel has three different sub-plots and it centres on Inspector Gamache who is struggling with a recent incident (don't want to give too much away). He is filled with doubts about the case 'solved' in The Brutal Telling and sends Jean Guy to investigate. Jean Guy is also struggling with the recent incident and his visit to Three Pines proves to be surprisingly comforting to him. As well as that investigation there is another one which Gamache is involved in at the same time. Everything comes together in the end and Gamache finds some closure and is ready to move on.
I'm so glad I read this book. Not only did it tie up the loose ends from the previous novel but it was a really good read. In fact I found it almost impossible to put it down. The character of Inspector Gamache was given so much more depth than in the last novel and at times I found myself weeping with the struggles he was having. He was presented as a man with great compassion and insight. Can't wait to read more about him.
Until next time
