Sneezing and sniffling

Not much happening at The Towers apart from a streaming cold to accompany some obsessive football listening. The pink striped orchid is still in flower



and another one's making its bid for freedom. Suspect that this is the softer, paler pink orchid that I blogged, oooh, ages ago

My knitting mojo has gone AWOL; it usually does at this time of year. I've started a couple of new blogs by way of compensation having more free time than usual. The first blog's a home for some of my cross stitch and blackwork designs which I've converted into free downloads - you can check them out at Tom Pudding Designs. It seemed silly to have the charts sitting around in a storage box and I've been meaning to get them online for a couple of years. The other new blog, Archive, is a mixture of vintage photographs, postcards and other bits and pieces that I've collected over the years. I guess this means I'm a serial blogger...
