Just a quick line to say I shall be absent from my computer for a few days, as Eldest Daughter and I are off to Italy (Florence to be exact!), somewhere I have wanted to visit since first seeing it when I was 18 or so, and they shot the film of Romeo and Juliet there (the ancient one starring Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey). I can't quite believe I shall be going yet, and so getting excited is only very slowly happening.
Anyway, a quick photo of the Malvern quilt, on our line:
As you can see, it's unfinished (still has ancient paper templates in the back around the edges - Woman's Weekly probably!) An unusual design though, and unique to this lady.
Last week I came down to the kitchen first thing, and found "someone" in residence on a kitchen chair . . . Someone in possession of all his Crown Jewels . . . and he knew how to use them on occasion! I am afraid he got bundled into a cat carrier and taken off to the vet's for the kindest cut of all and Ghengis is now more Bagpuss . . .
Expect one or two (hundred!) photos of Florence on my return.
