Soon Within My Tapestry

As Carole King wrote, “My life has been a tapestry…”  And, although, the patterns of my life haven’t always been harmonious, they at least continue to be interesting.

(Click the images to experience the symphony of colours and patterns here in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol this month.) 

Interestingly, I don’t see as much of this in summer when the town is mostly Spanish. (I just thought I’d mention that.)

FOREVER PLAID… 
AND SOMETHING ELSE.

Just what is it they’re here for and, more importantly, where ought they go?

And, yes, I know this isn’t actually an example of tapestry but I don’t know any songs [that I like] about patchwork quilts.

A Change Would Do You Good

I’m beginning to appreciate the daring fabric combinations some people wear. Admittedly, some mixes still hurt my eyes (and my sensibilities). Yet others are not only daring but show a great sense of design and flair (in my opinion). I myself have become more adventurous in my pattern choices — although not yet in public. Unless, that is, I get hit by the proverbial bus.
