On Saturday I had a lovely morning at the Royal School of Needlework in Hampton Court Palace as they were having a sale; found two of these haberdashers' cabinets (gave one to Sean as a cabinet for examples of his work) to house some of my huge collection of fabrics, these amazing wire spectacles (for a very short-sighted person!!) and scissors, including this dear little pair in a matching case. I also found some bundles of material which will be made into something soon. I had a wander around the formal gardens as they are open in the winter. It was a lovely crisp bright day - the complete opposite of today's wet and windy weather!
