Rose When I woke this morning in the summer palace, a mist hung over the valley and condensation covered every sprig ,leaf and blossom. Everything looked refreshed after yesterday's heat. We spent last night sitting beside an open fire and looking at the starry starry sky. I am going to make a concerted effort to finish the nanowrimo novel in the next few days. My first piece of "Dutch"lace is done, just have to work out how to finish the edges. Now I have to make the "Australian" lace- and then it is into the other lace pieces for which I have already drawn a number of designs.
