Seeing things

We have pictures again:

Red Carpet on the Stairs
And this is what I found on my way to work today.

I love the cotton I bought yesterday, Twilleys Organic Cotton Sincere DK, which is really soft and just pouring with drape. I just wish I’d bought it to make a shawl or something from, rather than dishcloths or coasters/table mats.

166. Francis Drake & the Armada by John Guy
