Mail goodies

Look what the mail-man just brought me – a big box from Amazon:

My New Lovely Books. Yay!

I ordered the two “River Cottage” books after reading two different posts on MoonCalfmakes’s blog. She was/is(?) doing a cookbook challenge, trying new recipies. First she did a River Cottage Stew that just made me want to eat just that. And later she wrote about Aubergine Parmigiana - and I knew I had to own both books.

The same day, I was listening to Electric Sheep’s Hoxton Handmade talking about Stitch London - a book with knitting patterns of London – quite literally. There are the animals of London (pigeons, mice, foxes and ravens) as well as buildings and people.  I love London. And my son does too. And he has a big non-firmation coming up, in which, I can tell you in all secrecy, there will be pigeons, oyster cards, big bens and perhaps a plane ticket or two…

When I was over at Amazon to order my goodness, I spotted the new Yarn Harlot book. And I love reading her books. So here the are – and I’m in for a lovely afternoon on the couch, reading and having tea and perhaps a cookie or five… (while the Chicken and Mushroom casserole is simmering away…)

 

P.S. In case you are not recieving my shop newsletter.. We are celebrating the opening of the new shop by giving  15% discount on all orders that enter the code NEWSHOP at checkout. It works until Sunday the 23rd at midnight (CET)….
