"I can tell that we are gonna be friends". #1 arrived home from the framers, a very welcome addition to the family on its temporary resting place atop the piano. (The photographer is the very talented Rebecka of Vintage Fairy Tales, and I am glad and honoured to say she is my friend.)  It's actually a dark walnut frame, although you could be forgiven for thinking it's black. I'm sure the sample wasn't quite so dark.

What a week it's been in our little slice of paradise with the constant rain, flooding, and the inevitable slips. We personally only experienced the rain, the slip was around the corner a way, and the only flooding we had was confined to the wood shed from the water pouring down the slope into it, although the old roof sprung a leak in the living room the other night. My beloved was despatched with a ladder and bucket into the ceiling so the problem was minimised quickly. All fixed now and the rain has finally stopped, hopefully for a while, but probably not. A good time to stay home, keep the fire stoked up and sew. The children have had a very confined school holiday, but at least it didn't rain on Sunday for the annual Easter egg hunt. Small mercies…
