My Secret Santa gift from the Book Blogger Holiday Swap arrived and I couldn’t wait to rip the paper off and see what was inside… Complete joy! two wonderful, and completely different books from my wishlist and super hand-crocheted bookmarks to go with them.
The books were Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont by Elizabeth Taylor, a wonderful author I only discovered this year, and First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde from his supremely inventive Thursday Next litcom detective series. They both go onto the reading pile for after Christmas. As for the bookmarks – I have never learned to crochet, and they are so neatly done and lovely bright Christmassy colours.
A huge thank you goes to Meghan at Medieval Bookworm for her brilliant choices and great crochet skills. Thank you again and very best wishes for a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
