I didn’t finish of the Rose of Sebastopol 😮 The weather was dark and miserable and so on Friday, I took up Sovereign and delved once more into the adventures of Matthew Shardlake – frankly, I cannot wait for book 4 to be available in paperback! This one was a delicious as a bar of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk and I couldn’t put it down until I’d finished it. Then I moved on to The 13th Apostle – hmm, what can I say…don’t waste your money springs to mind! Definitely not a recommended read from me at all.
I noticed in a little flick around the internet the other day that the Rose of Sebastopol is on the Richard and Judy reading list, as is another book that I
struggled through read over Christmas called Notes from an Exhibition by Patrick Gale. Let’s hope that other of their recommendations are better than this one! I do intend to plod along with Sebastopol, it has potential – it’s just not gripping me at the moment. Meanwhile however, I will today be turning my eyes towards The Art Thief once I have completed some more of the fabric art journal that I’m behind with.
Here is a little taster – it doesn’t show up so well on the scan really, in fact it looks like I’ve just cut an A out of some sparkly paper stuff! In fact, I made it with some soluble stabiliser, lots of little bits of fancy fabric and some angelina fibres. Shame it doesn’t show properly. Ah well – must complete the rest of the letters, it takes quite a while.
