Book Club

When our bookclub formed we wanted a name for it..... we are all 'mature' women - (me being more mature than some, and less mature than some!).  One lady (who shall remain nameless - and is maybe not a lady!) said with a giggle ....

"We can make Allan (the librarian) blush - lets be "The Morning Glories"

 .,....... well (me being more mature than some, and less mature than some) smiled and agreed........... and went home to chat to Mr Google to see what the joke was.....

~ Don't ask...... if you want to know ........... google it! ~

Today is our last bookclub for the year
(we will do a Christmas break up party in January - that makes sense doesn't it???) 

A friend of mine recently made a quilt and on the fabric was .......... yes, some Morning Glory flowers....

Everyone will have their own personalised "Morning Glory" book-mark.....


Happy weekend.....

(PS This month we read Four Fires by Bryce Courtenay)

That is so funny, I imagine you'll get lots of giggles over that name! I've read Four Fires and absolutely loved it, definitely my fave Bryce Courtenay title. Have fun with your book club.

That's funny...It's our bookclub breakup dinner tonight and I've made 12 bookmarks for them all. I did these last year too, same but different of course.....maybe we need to get together and "discuss" bookmark ideas for next year.

Fun. I think belonging to a book club would be as much fun as getting together with quilters.
