It has been a day for getting little things done. I turned a pile of lemons and limes into six bottles of cordial (very yummy!), and finished my present for our incoming Baroness. It's a white linen napkin, hand-hemmed with silk thread, with her device in one corner (appliqueed, split stitch in coloured silk on a linen ground, with a surface couched goldwork border to neaten the edge up). His Imminence is getting the same (well, with his device, obviously). I also did various boring household chores, and am now going to spend the remainder of the evening in front of the fire, stitching.
