Dear Readers, the colours in these pictures do not quite convey the intensity and passion of the real fabric samples, but so delighted am I with their discovery I feel I must share more of the polyester lovelies with you. It may not surprise you to learn that I was busy at work today, and unable to upload any photos - so I have been confined to my inaccurately named "sunroom" which is at the southerly end of the house, with no heating and the Listener to read, while I upload small batches of photos to Picasa and then to my blog. My hands are not quite blue, but there is a faint numbness, particularly in my little finger which suggests that a state of blue-ness is not far off. It is ofcourse, only 3 weeks from the shortest day, the nights are long and the day time temperatures are just making double figures. The room does in fact get quite a lot of sun but please bear in mind that the sun is only shining in the windows from 11am to 2pm as there is a splendid hill behind my house!! Despite the cold, and my busy day, I am still so happy with the discovery of the fabric samples.
Okay, hand is now almost blue, which signifies the end of this ramble. I have the last few pages of a novel to complete before tonight's episode of Downton Abbey, which I am watching mainly for the costumes. Night Night.
