Sunshine and a very good book

Its summer in April here ... such a joy to stitch and read outside. 

I've added some feather stitches to the stitch-a-day piece ...

and finished reading Sarah Lapido Manyika's wonderful book. Like a Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun. 

This is a short coming of old  age book, with all the issues of disappearing independence that reaching her mid-seventies and slipping from the edge of the bath brings to Morayo De Silva. She is on of the most memorable characters I've met in a novel for a very long time. The prose is beautiful, events and the other people in Moraya's life are touched on in just the right amount of detail and honesty   ... I just loved it.
