Marigolds seem to be the only flower-type things in our garden right now, and are certainly the most colourful of the winter-enduring plants. I picked a few and then embroidered yellow ones on some recycled wool fabric, in order to make these phone cases for my shop. I made one for my own phone too as it's starting to look a bit worse for wear these days... it travels in my bag, on the bus, etc each day and gets a good workout.
And here is a song for today. I used to thrash this PJ Harvey album back when I was student (for the first time, that is) and then today my ipod chose this song at random. When I got home and turned on the radio, they were playing it too. Perhaps everyone's bad fortune is slipping away.
