This afternoon I went to an embroidery exhibition and my friend Beth had this wonderful cushion in the display. You really need an upclose photo to see the exquisite finishing work and appreciate the skill that went in to this cushion. Well done Beth - its beautiful!
Well thats it folks I'm off to my chair for a stitching marathon to get some progress I can show on the ABECEDAIRE. See you tomorrow.

So the bowl of destiny was brought out and dusted (well it's actually a Royal Doulton bowl - pattern Rosalind - which was a wedding present received by my Grandma around 86 years ago??)Into the bowl go the papers. Thank you to the 21 of you who left such wonderful comments. It's a pity there's only one surprise:-)
No trumpets here; no drum rolls; no music at all but the lucky winner is EDGAR.
