I have been getting ready for the needlework event at Parham House tomorrow and Monday. I love Parham House and the early needlework collection collected by the keen needlewomen, the Hon. Mrs Clive Pearson and her mother, Lady Brabourne. Their collection embraces an unparalleled group of Suart embroidered pictures, textile furnishings and samplers. In addition to this 17th century collection are works from the later centuries up to the present day. I shall look forward to telling you all about my two days there and hope to have some lovely sights to share with you. In the meantime, gaze with delight on what is probably the loveliest long gallery in England. I am so excited, I shall hardly sleep!
