knitting and reading

I'm knitting a diagonal baby blanket...almost finished!

And reading this delightful book about Beatrix Potter.  I so enjoyed the recent Miss Potter movie, and really enjoy reading anything about Beatrix.

 The book has some lovely watercolour paintings...

and interesting old photos....

I do so like the way she dressed...all those long skirts and tweed :o)


  1. i have seen some blogs talking about this lady is this a serie ? is this in america? i never heard about her before...seems interesting..ill check on youtube..maybe i can find out..i love people like you like cooking..myself have not so much experience im learning..take care friend...

  2. Hello Soraya - Beatrix Potter was born in England in 1866. She wrote childrens' books. Maybe you have heard of Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck? If you do a google search on her name, you should come up with lots of information.

    Have a good day!

  3. Hi Michelle - I really like all the photos and illustrations...I love the English countryside!
