A Photo A Day(ish)....plus one.


Remembering To Look. Remembering To Look.
Mum gave this to me many, many years ago. She'd bought it in Hungary and it's been sitting on my chest of drawers, as a runner, for years. The good thing about doing A Photo A Day(ish) is that it's making me pay attention. As I was heading off to bed last night I stared at this beautiful pattern and realised I'd not properly appreciated either the pattern, the gift, or the history of the piece for a very long time.




Remembering To Look 2. Remembering To Look 2.




And in other news, the other day I was bemoaning someone who had failed to send me payment for some yarn I'd sent her (not as a formal sale through a sale site, just as a goodwill gesture to a fellow knitter - so it was my feelings that were hurt, not my wallet). I'm happy to say the money turned up today, so it seems she was just a tad disorganised.

My faith in humanity is not only restored but - since she *also* sent me five dollars more than we agreed on - somewhat improved. Improved enough that I decided to up the ante by donating it (plus five more dollars) to The Hamlin Fistula Relief and Aid Fund.

Dr Hamlin is one of my heros - what a woman. I'm glad you mentioned donating -I've not thought of doing that before.

I love woven patterns like that. Yours is really beautiful.
