Morning all. Well, here we are in half term and, for once, the weather isn't half bad - more winter sun and frosts than the usual dismal grey skies. Unfortunately, E is bogged down with English Literature coursework and has A2 mocks looming as well, so there won't be much gadding about for us this week.
There have been a few highlights though. Our local library is currently holding a 'Library Fest' with various exciting and, more importantly, free workshops. Saturday saw me doing a rag rugging one, held by textile artist Kath Hutchings. It was brilliant - easy, fun and green. Never again will I throw away old T shirts; they'll all be cut up into 1cm strips and rugged!
Here are a few photos of Kath's work:
There is a short walk to get to the woods. Over a wooden bridge:
Spotting a few:
..... and there we are. Stunning isn't it?
Then it was back home to light the stove and watch the rugby:
It was a Valentine's Day well spent.
Other happies so far this week:
My new charity shop find. There are some lovely projects that I have my eye on:
Spotting a green woodpecker in the garden - please try to avert your eyes from all the weeds and focus on the bird!
Enjoying my current favourite lunch - avocado and poached egg on toast:
Starting knitting my first ever sock:
My Valentine's roses from R. He knows I'm not keen on red roses, so plumped for a rainbow bunch:
... and finally, catching Hamish sat on the coffee table 'helping' E with her homework!
Toodle Pip for now. x
