Home books Plotting…


by Clare Mansell

Not very much of a crafting nature has been happening in this house this week, but a lot of plotting has been going on…

● I have taken on board the comments about the garden and we are going to spend some money on it. Some furniture and pots will be bought and I have a gardener coming over to blitz the weeds and maybe take on some projects for us… I feel very positive about this.

● Husband has been working on a cooking project of his own, which I’m hoping I can tell you about later in the week…

● I have been working on a course plan for a patchwork quilting class I hope to run in the autumn term at the learning centre in Akrotiri. A few friends have already said they will sign up, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed they decide to take it on to the schedule.

● The organisers of an art week on the base have asked me to exhibit one of my quilts, I’m very flattered and nervous at the same time – I hope it comes back in one piece!

● And I have been savouring my latest read… Husband found this one and bought it as a Valentines present, it’s the fictional story of an Army Officer and his wife living in Episkopi during the 1950s. When I finish it I’m going to try and get an interview with the author for the radio – A real life Episkopi wife interviewing an author about her fictional one, I’m looking forward to it…
