As some of you may know I am part of an online Australian paper piecing group called Wombat Stew. There are seven of us who take it in turns to choose a theme for our month and then we ask one another to come up with a paper pieced block on that theme.
Alyce chose Japanese cuisine
Jane chose houses
Lara chose teapots
Kristy chose sewing (you can join her BoM sew along for these patterns)
and Marieka chose retro kitchen
Gemma is yet to choose in April
March is my month and I have chosen Mid Century furniture and architecture. I am excited to see what the girls will come up with.
But recently we introduced the idea of a Wombat Stew Book Club. To encourage us to expand our reading menu and then have the bonus of discussing the book of the month. Not all the wombats are joining in.
This month the book is called 'The Handmaid's Tale' by Margaret Attwood. It is fiction and classed as a Utopia/Dystopia. After reading the blurb on the back cover, I said to my lovely local bookstore lady "I would never choose to read this kind of book." And I am finding it very heavy going. The writing style is very different to anything I have read before and the content is very jarring.
I am more of a non-fiction kind of girl - biographies and history are my faves. Just visit my booklist on Goodreads to find out.
