I folded and then spread the shawl on my desk -- yes that's Jennifer Ehle on my wall in one of my favorite stills from the 1995 P&P (meditative in landscape) and a glass of wine
I sent her a Jacquie E. Lawson card, told her I wore it home, and will keep it on my chair as I like to wear a shawl as a wrap round my shoulders in the house for warmth.
