IT'S A FAMILY THING...
The son and heir's book is at the "Spooks" end of the market, I - as you all know! -write romance and our lovely cousin Lucinda Ganderton makes the most beautiful things and writes craft books so that you can make them, too.
My granddaughter is lucky enough to have an heirloom patchwork quilt made by her.
Her latest book written for Liberty's is out on the 5th October - you can check it out here - she has made some special limited edition items that will on sale in the store to celebrate the launch.
It's the kind of book I reach for when the nights draw in.
Writing tends to be an all consuming occupation, but the the arrival my granddaughter did produce a sudden rush of knitting and, as the nights draw in I'm looking at the abandoned projects in the basket in the corner. Small, lovely things to keep the hands occupied in the quiet after dinner while I watch Downton Abbey.
What kind of stuff do you turn to when the nights draw in and the inclination to leave the house after dark declines sharply?
Are you a demon knitter, a Christmas decoration queen, or does cross-stitch keep you busy?
