Making - this crochet dress

Free pattern here.

Reading - Restoration by Rose Tremain.

Have enjoyed other Rose Tremain books, especially "Music and Silence" and "The Colour". 

Watching - Broadchurch on ABC iview. It's a fine English production which relies heavily on the high quality performances of Olivia Colman and David Tennant. Despite an overuse of focus pulls and fancy arty-farty camera tricks (as a former film student it kind of drives me batty!), I'm enjoying the emotional pull of this story.

Listening - Hardcore History podcasts 
These are terrific history lessons that are in no way boring!
'In "Hardcore History" the very unconventional Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", outside-the-box way of thinking and applies it to the past.'

Wearing - bobby socks and t-bars.

What's on your playlist this week???


  1. I LOVE Restoration.One of my top ten reads. You must see the film....it's every bit as good and Robert Downey Jr. is splendid as Merivel.

  2. Ooh good! I'm loving it so far - and want to read the recently published sequel, "Merivel: A Man of his time"

  3. Lovely dress. The model is lovely as well ;) I haven't heard of that author. I'll have to see if any of those books are available in our local library.
