A Few Of My Favourite Things

Welsh Tapestry is one of my favourite fabrics but there is very little that I can find written about it.  The Flannel Makers is a very interesting read and I learned a lot about the Welsh wool and weaving industry/cottage industry but nothing I didn't already know about Welsh Tapestry. 
Maybe I'll write a book myself.

I love a bit of textile reading on my hols, last time I read the brilliant Counting Sheep
by Philip Walling.  A fascinating book for anyone interested in wool, sheep, farming, 
British history, economics and trade.

We were recommended an excellent book shop and I came away with Tove Jansson Work and Love.  I've made a start but am trying to savour it.
