Happy New Year


Happy New Year to you all and thank you to you all for your support during 2021
and interest in my website. 

I hope that you managed to meet up with your family and friends over the Christmas period and you have managed to stay Covid free.
I am now boosted and ready for the New Year.

January began mild and grey so we decided to go for a walk to blow away the cobwebs. The trees are yet to show growth but we did see our first burst of catkins.
Here you see across the fields towards the Lincolnshire Wolds.


 Over the holiday period I managed to do some weaving. The first scarf I sold before I had even finished it. It was light and airy and woven in a soft yarn with a purple patterned edge.


My second piece is also light and airy and made a soft beige viscose/cotton blend with a patterned edge in pale green and lemon.

I decided to make myself something for a change so I made 
myself a Christmas wreath made from pompoms. 
It was very therapeutic and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Apple tree Pirates

The Clumsy Pickle has  just published  a childrens comic book. It is the first in a 

series of the adventures of 'The Apple Tree Pirates' with Captain Onki and his crew. 

The illustrations are amazing and will make and ideal  Christmas gift for a child along 

with the Apple Tree Pirates activity pack

 


What's New?


Hello everyone What's new?

It has been an odd year and already it is autumn. I have spent a lot of my time in the 
garden as well as crafting and writing.

My book Fagus the Badger has been proofread and tweaked and now I am in the process of having some exciting illustrations done by the Clumsy Pickle


I have been making some fun cards for my Folksy shop.

All done.....


 Yesterday I had my 2nd Covid jab. 

Today I have a tender arm and a bit tired, but otherwise 
I'm not to bad.

Hopefully we are now slowly coming out the other end.

However, we still need to be careful. 

I for one will not be going silly and I shall still be wearing a mask when I feel compromised.

I can't wait to give my son and granddaughter a bit hug.

Take care and enjoy your Summer.

February is shit......


 Well a bitter wind is blowing from the east and snow is forecast this week. The thought does not fill me with excitement. I have to admit the lockdown this time is getting to me.
Before I could potter in the garden and enjoy the sunshine.

I had hoped that 2021 would bring enlightenment and light to the end of the tunnel, but so far February has been shit. I have lost two friends to Covid and now I have lost my brother to Bowel Cancer. Like many I never got the chance for that final goodbye, living in France I was never going to get to see him. A close friend of mine sent me some flowers to cheer me up and the gorgeous gerbera made me smile. Ironically, the post man delivered my flowers with my Bowel Cancer Screening test.

Completed and sent off can I say please don't ignore the chance for screening.

2021


Hello everyone it has been a while since my last post. I hope that you are all surviving lockdown. Christmas has been and gone and we are now in 2021.

I have been busy finishing projects and one of these is my book 'Fagus the Badger'. It is currently being proofread. Keep a look out to see its progress on my 'Fagus' blog page.
