Book Club & Other Goings On

My very first 'Book Club' book arrived in the post this morning which is pretty exciting! We've gone for 'Damned' by Chuck Palahniuk.

As I was ordering it online I could A) pay for postage, or B) add another book to my order which seemed the better of the two options so I treated myself to 'Sepulchre' by Kate Mosse. I read her previous novel 'Labyrinth' which I enjoyed -It made me really want to visit Carcassone at some point (on the travel list).

I figure if I don't get around to reading it beforehand I'll pop it in my luggage and read it during our June trip to Italy.

In other news I have finally got around to printing out my 'Cooper' by Colette Paterns and purchasing the waxed cotton and cotton drill for the outer (no lining choice yet -baby steps!). I still need to source hardware as well which is tricky in terms of colour matching when distance buying. Anyone have any stockist suggestions?

Unfortunately as you may be able to see in the picture above, the waxed cotton is already a little 'distressed'. I'm not sure whether to cut around it or assuming that the bag will end up looking significantly worn with use, try to make a feature of it...

Anyway, I must dash as I have a project which needs finishing for tomorrow and a friend visiting for tea! Busy, busy!
