It is all go here - never a free moment - last night and this morning we were lying on tarps up on the hill behind the house, snuggled under eiderdowns gazing up at the Perseid meteor shower shooting silver trails across clear, starry sky. Earlier in the evening we had had to multitask while eating dinner, not only had we to squeeze in some sips of Blanquette de Limoux but also had to listen to the 1988 performance of Murray Perahia playing Beethoven's Emperor Piano Concerto, find time for a few tears of simple joy and manage a little stitching. And here is Christabel - I am having a passion for longer horizontal samplers at the moment. Volume II of the Vierlande motifs together with all these samplers and more should be with you in a couple of weeks. I'd love to stop and gossip but must get back to the new book. I hope you have a lovely day.
