Me and My Cocoary

Rosebud Romance

Welcome to my Cocoary. It’s like an orangery, except for cacao trees (I’ll let you work out why it’s not a cacaory, unless it’s just me with a mind in the gutter…), and it’s where I like to settle myself with my crafts and my books. And my chocolate, naturally. You’re more than welcome to pull up a chair and have a cup of tea. Take a truffle – they’re there to be eaten, not to look pretty!

Crafts:

Generally, I’m a cross-stitcher, but I sometimes crochet, and I intend to take up other forms of embroidery, and possibly quilting, when I have a bit more time. Occasionally, I have been known to make the odd, poorly-made, dress.

Books:

My favourite novel or series is Nancy Mitford’sΒ The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate. I am very fond of the Saga of the Volsungs, as well, with the dragons and gold. Poor dragon. They always seem to end up dead in a ditch, sword through the heart.

My favourite author, though, is Georgette Heyer, who established the Regency romance as a Genre.

But I’ll read anything that stays still long enough. Even the ghastly horrible things which probably ought not to have seen the light of day.

Chocolate:

What’s not to love?

  1. I just came upon your blog, and since I am a cross-stitcher I just had to check it out. I have to say that you say you have very little discipline. I don’t quite believe you because I don’t think you would every complete a cross-stitch project with no discipline! I will enjoy reading more of your blog.

    • I never had any before I started cross-stitching, and I don’t have much for most other things. Just something magical about cross-stitching! I’m glad you like my blog; thank you! πŸ™‚
