  1. Great wrap up! A pity that the Dawn French book did not work for you, but I really appreciate your thoughts on it – I was tempted for a moment to pick it up but now I have a better idea of what to expect and won’t be reading it.

    Your embroidery is so beautiful. I adore the woman with flowers on her head one!

    • Thank you! The French is a decent book for the right reader, but honestly I can’t see anyone in our group particularly loving it 👀

      Thank you so much! 🧵✨

  2. Looks like you had a good reading month (although what did make you pick up the Dawn French?! 😉). You continue to impress with the embroidery, they are all really good, I couldn’t even pick a favourite this month.

    • I can’t deny that I probably wouldn’t have bothered had it not been listed for the Women’s Prize, haha. It’s a solid enough book for the right reader, but not my cup of tea.

      Thank you so much! 😊

  3. Hello Callum. Such gorgeous embroideries. I’ll have to have a go. I loved The Vanishing Half. I kept missing bus stops and burning the spuds while reading it!

  4. I am OBSESSED with that cat piece! It is so beautiful (they all are, but I am a big cat lover).

    I am supposed to read one of Junji Ito’s manga’s for a personal reading project; however, I suspect that I might be too much of a scaredy-cat to handle them.

    Very much looking forward to your review for Winter in Sokcho. I read it earlier this year and really enjoyed it, so very interested to hear your thoughts.

    • Thank you so much! I love cats too, so I’m sure I’ll do plenty more cat themed pieces in the future 🐱

      Ito’s stuff definitely gets under your skin! And yay for Winter in Sokcho; I hope to see more people reading and talking about it soon.

  5. That first embroidery piece is stunning. Then again, they all are! 🙂 I also particularly adore the cat, I’m sure it made for a great gift! And it looks like you’ve had a busy reading month too- exciting to see The Vanishing Half as your top read.
