Watching Twelfth Night (1996) last night, I was mesmerized by the stunning Gothic Victorian estate and interiors. At first, I mistakenly thought it was Strawberry Hill, but the credits listed Lanhydrock House in Cornwall. A bit of goggle searching ensued. Images+info here and here.

One down, 2,545 to go.
New vow to finish old sewing projects (heaped up and tucked away) before beginning anything new. This dress was something I made about 5 years ago of sanded rayon with a metallic sleeve - sort of “everyday faire wear”. Not only was the metallic fabric scratchy, but the dry-cleaning process ruined it, so I replaced with leftover fabric, added bits of plum velvet + trim I had on hand.

Ellis Peters: medieval mysteries
Sir Derek Jacobi as Brother Cadfael.
Have been enjoying BBC’s Cadfael mystery series for some time. I think I've watched nearly all 13 episodes filmed back in the mid-late 90s. Available in a fantastic DVD boxset from Amazon (which I long to own), you can check them out on Netflix. Many personal websites share insight and information about the main character, Brother Cadfael, and the Shrewsbury setting.
I recognized guest actors from other shows I've enjoyed like Anna Friel (Timeline, Bathory, Pushing Daisies), Natasha McElhone (The Secret of Moonacre), Hermione Morris (BBC Spooks) to name a few. Coincidentally, it was filmed in Budapest on a set used by BBC's Robin Hood - another show I watched with great enthusiasm. Ellis Peters also writes under the pen name Edith Pargeter, whose The Brothers Gwynedd series I enjoyed about 10 years ago. Love Welsh historic fiction!
