Several years ago I wrote an article for Devon Life on a day in the life of Exeter Cathedral. On the day I visited I met many people, from the Dean to the flower ladies, but one of my memories is of being taken to see the vestments and to be able to see them close up and personal, so to speak. They were incredibly detailed in their needlework embellishments, in both coloured silks and gold and silver thread. I think I admire needlework all the more because my own use of needle and thread stops at an ability to sew on a button!

Earlier this year I sang in Verdi Requiem in St. Paul's. Where we lined up in the North Choir were many large cases containing vestments. I took photos of the labels on two cases, one reading "Starwars Cope" and the other "Burse Veils" and "The Other Ones".
One of the joys of visiting Rome is buying socks for my husband at the Papal outfitters where their reds and purples are vibrant and glorious!
