Half a year of books: audiobooks

For several years, I've listed books/ebooks/unabridged audiobooks that I've read/listened to on Pinterest. No reviews, just pictures of the covers so I could remember titles and avoid duplicates. In the first half of 2019, I listed 64 titles. For some reason, books/ebooks I listed from Amazon were linked through to 'Amazon Fashion'. I've always been able to delete unwanted links; now I can't. So it's goodbye Pinterest...

Taking up where I left off

I thought I would take up blogging again where I left off in 2018. It's hard to believe that more than a year has gone past since my last post, in spite of lots of good intentions on my part. I'm a bit of an expert at putting-off-stuff-until-tomorrow.

So, what's been happening here? Nothing of note really - it's been one of those fallow years where I've felt as if I've been marking time rather than forging ahead. I've read a lot of books and listened to countless audiobooks while despairing about the state of this country and the government. And I feel it's only going to get worse after January 31.

In other news, I'm beavering away on several new knitting and crochet designs. There has been much swatching.

The models are now finished but instructions still need bashing into shape before the patterns are tech edited and tested. Why does everything take an age?
