A few years ago Father O asked me if I took photographs of everything I made. He was sort of telling me off because he knew perfectly well that I sometimes forget! He knew because I had just given him some items which I had not taken pictures of. Oops.
So here we go. Some belated photographs of items I delivered Some Time Ago and Forgot to Take Pictures Of. Shame and embarrassment all round.

Happy Easter! Well, what a Holy Week I had… Father outdid himself indeed, what with fix this (pole removed from canopy – why?), revive that (ombrellino!), could you make this (new altar cloth!) and oh, by the way… I have this tapestry and it would make a splendid frontal!
