Back to the "real" world of day jobs and model stitching. The private collection we visited was stupendous and the Gothic Exhibit at the V&A on Friday was brilliant. Saturday was a dangerous visit to my favorite textile book dealer where I was treated to a couple of great books by a friend. One that had been on my best wish list "The Studio" a special 1921 edition on embroidery and another on Transylvanian Saxon designs with excellent footnotes to link the folk motifs charted. Friends are real superheros when they understand one's lust for needlework and design books.

No stitching whilst gone, but heaps of inspiration. Watch this space.
