Let the good times roll out before us like a deep thick shag pile carpet
that absorbs the spills,
doesn't show the dirt,
is always warm underfoot
and softens the bumps when we fall over.

And trust me after last night I really need one of them!

This fantastic calendar was sent to me by Nicola Killeen Textiles early on in December.
I have wanted to show it to you ever since.
Each month is a sample one of their dye processes.
If I were to be really organised I could photograph all 12 months and pre prepare a post for the beginning of every month.
That is a really big IF though.
Would I ever be that consistent/ persistent?
Keeping up an idea for a whole 12 months, with no sudden about turns or about faces.
Who knows. I make no promises.
I don't really believe in new years resolutions,
I always let my self down.
But the Bombshell was given this book by his Nana

and we think it would be fun to try and do as much of it as possible this year.
Hope you are all recovering from the festivities.
See you in a day or two.
Love Nora xxx
