Another beautiful sofa




And it's pink, again? We have been looking for a long time for a great sofa, and it seems the overarching trend these days is for low backs (zero support) and metal legs (which we don't care for). And the really beautiful sofas come with the price tags we can't really stretch to.  The Alcove Plume and Ruche are making me seriously think coral pink though.

Woolly weather


Is this another month edging to a close?  I've been busy sewing merino wool pants for lovely babies around the world, and nursing my broken-legged husband.  The one upside of this situation is that I can hear him coming now - 'click click click' go the crutches - no sneaking up on me for a few more weeks.

We're also bearing the crazy October weather; rain here and sun just down the road, a fine cotton tshirt at 3pm, woollens and slippers by 4pm.  Today though is an all woollens day.  Good for sewing and listening to Tony Bennett and Fawlty Towers audio CDs.  John Cleese, yes!

Leila Jeffreys


Yes again, such is my admiration for this photographer.  Birds are my all-time favourite animal, and birds are Leila's focus.  I just stumbled across this August interview which talks about her latest exhibition Prey.
