Today has been a very low day indeed, the weather has been wet & cold all day and I haven't been able to warm up. Setting up the bedroom however to take these photos warmed me up and cheered me up too. There's something so satisfying about making your environment nice.
I acquired this absolutely beautiful piece of embroidery that I've made into quite a glamorous cushion. The colours and the stitching are exquisite and I chose a pale pink silk taffeta to make a pleated frill round the outside.
I bought this lovely striated ribbon in Melbourne when I was there at this time last year.
just look at the detail in this cherry blossom.
I've also cheered myself up with this lemony combination after listening to Woman's hour on radio 4 when they were talking about pastels being in this season. I never see myself as someone who follows fashion trends but this is a happy coincidence.
That's all for now. I'm off to cook dinner and fall into the sack.
I do have another blog in the pipeline though about my recent trip to Scotland. I'll finish it off this weekend some time and show you my reasons for becoming a Scotlophile.
