Joining in this for the first time!
Walking over the misty Sussex Downs. Thinking Ravilious.
Reading: three sorts of scary.
But also dipping into these.
Making: wonky bread, marmalade, quince jelly and chutney.
And making fires – LOTS of them.
Sorting china – plenty more where that came from…(the roof!)
Watching and waiting – think the narcissi are winning!
Listing: in the Etsy shop – cosy stuff! Cushions, cowls leg warmers…
AND plenty of time spent BlogLoving: this month I have particularly enjoyed:
Friday night : Brighton gearing up for a sunny weekend!
The picture below is a shot from one of my windows, about 7.30am. The view has been changed rather dramatically over the last couple of years – first by the famous i360 tower (known locally as Brighton’s giant loo roll holder – at a cost of £46 million!), then by the curious wind farm (£1.3 billion) – you can see this section on the horizon if you zoom in. I am sure it will be a useful resource – but I fear sunrise and sunset on a clear day will never be quite the same…
And the anticipation? Well, the FESTIVAL of course! Starting at the end of next week. I’ve booked quite a bit. More to come.
This might have been my best birthday present ever. A kitchen fire, contemporary with the house, to be lit whenever it snows. We light the drawing room fire every day in Winter, but this one is a special ritual – it is, in fact, too hot for comfort with the oven on… Note my little granddaughter’s ‘ducks’ currently centre stage! And overhead we have this splendid creation from daughter number 2:
Shame my photo isn’t quite so splendid – sorry, but I am improving!
Time to get sorted!
This is the view that greeted me on my way downstairs this morning. It’s a small part of my overall stash and I am currently switching out some of the heavier weight winter yarns (possibly prematurely – it is in fact snowing outside…)
If I manage to make enough of a dent in the tidying up so that I can access that drum carder by tomorrow, I should have time to make a couple of art yarn batts – always fun stuff!
