Today my neighbour came over to visit wearing this skirt. She bought it yesterday and all I can say is that I am sooo glad that I didn't go with her as there may have been fisticuffs. Isn't it the most wonderful thing you have ever seen.
I would even be happy to have it as wall paper.
She (Dominique) works in a second hand shop and saved these books from being thrown out. I have a phobia about cutting books up for collage but Dominique has a theory that if they are published in a condensed version by Reader's Digest they deserve to be cut up as books should never, ever be condensed. I buy that theory. Particularly if they are about to be thrown out even from the op shop.
This book will not be cut up - Archie is still very keen on learning the flute so it is probably time to think about investing in one.
I have almost finished the shrug - I can't wait to show you the final version.
I am so mad on these colours at the moment. I think they may be my favourite combination.
And here is a portrait Hugo drew of me this morning. I wear a lot of stripes. He has caught my new shoes perfectly - I had better take a photo of them tomorrow.
Anyhoo, time to knit...
Lots of love,
