Glorious autumn day
Spent day in bed feeling ghastly. Drank a lot of tea and dozed. Listened to A Good Read on podcast - Miriam Margoles and a writer I havent heard of. Miriam chose Great Expectations and the bloke chose To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolfe. I have not yet managed to get to the end of a Virginia Woolfe novel. I find them turgid and the characters inspid. Miriam was of the same opinion. The lady in charge of the show recommended Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote which I then found a copy of online and rather enjoyed, for the part I managed to read before dozing off again.
Here, for your enjoyment, are some photos of the work of Lea Stansal, who I absolutely admire for her stunning and original embroidery
