I was hostess for our book club last night (hence I’m a bit tired this morning as we chatted until nearly ten).  I baked like a mad lady yesterday afternoon – monte carlos, coconut jam slice, rock cakes and jam drops were on the menu.  Mr Petit was delighted this morning to find two monte carlos to take to work for smoko.  I love our book club because we have such a variety of people (well, me the youngest at 29, then a couple of ladies who I guess are in their late 60’s and early 70’s), although we only have one man.  So conversations are always interesting as we have such a range of opinions on the books.  We were also talking about other book clubs we had been in in the past, with book club styles ranging from not actually talking about the books (just a gossip session) to being what I refer to a literary nazis where some members’ opinions are king and are imposed on the other members!  I’m looking forward to this month’s book – Saturday by Ian McEwen.  First I have to finish my currently library book – Jackdaws by Ken Follet.

Got my blind fold on again

It didn’t take long for Blind Fold Scrapping over at the Little Scrapbooking Shop to roll around again.  Last night Mel ran a great BFS and it was even more awesome than usual as she posted all the players out a little packet of goodies to use in our embellishments.  I was feeling a bit brain dead last night and really struggled getting the page to come together, but this afternoon I picked a different photo and a different colour scheme and it fell together much more easily.  I can’t show you the finished product until Friday, but I can give you a sneak peak or two.  I used patterned papers from Kaisercraft’s Lilac Avenue range (can you tell I like it?  Just a few uses of late!), rhinestone brads, vinyl and foam thickers and some Kindyglitz.

Thanks to Mel for the stamped flowers, she rocks
