It's great till I have to actually remember which way I was going.
Sometimes I have to ask a friend if the letters are right way around.

>I once browsed through the Caulfield books on Victorian Embroidery. 

Some time ago I got an abridged edition of Caulfield, with 1882 adverts in
the front and no colour plates.  I sold it to a friend of mine when I
finally got the two volume Dover edition.  And you're right about the
needleworked Victorian gorp.  Is that the one with the plant stand made
from lobster shells?  :P
