During the pandemic I decided to work on my domestic skills and have become a fan of YouTube star Bernadette Banner. So just received from Amazon her book Make, Sew and Mend: Traditional Techniques to Sustainably Maintain and Refashion Your Clothes.

A little busy so far this month, but WAY down from last.

Brought home an ARC, Ashton Hall by Lauren Belfer (pub date 6/22; fiction with a lot of history included)

My order for Little Wartime Library by Kate Thompson (historical fiction) FINALLY arrived. But apparently UPS lost my Conclusion of the Memoirs of Miss Sidney Bidulph by Frances Sheridan -- a replacement copy is supposed to arrive by end of day Friday.

And two new purchases:
* _My Life Story: My Memories of the Past, Present, and Thoughts for the Future_ by Chartwell Books (a guided journal)
* The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill (mystery -- gorgeous cover got me, although I have heard good things about the author's historical mystery series starting with A Few Right Thinking Men)

>2 varielle: _Make, Sew, and Mend_ sounds interesting!

>3 lilithcat: Dang. I think I own a Cees Noteboom title (unread). *Not* positive which book it is, although one of The Following Story covers looks faintly familiar.
