Just before the clock strikes 12 and we all turn into pumpkins or white mice – thank you everyone who called in and said hello at the Norwich Summer Fair today.
From this point you can travel the inter-galactic super highway to find me here and here and here.
On a practical note; birders there will be curlews, godwits, oyster catchers and herons on cushions by the end of the week.
For the people who fancied a flamingo I can’t find the promised photo but flamingos are definitely in the repertoire so I’ll get on with that.
And all those folk who arrived after the bees had sold out there will be new bees at next weekends open studio for sure.
Hope to see you again.
After a busy week
in which acres of chaos have been created
the team have pulled together
and deserve treats!
We are planning a trip to the sea.
Cushions are in stock at the lovely Eel Catcher’s Daughter.
I updated my Etsy shop today
In and out between showers taking photographs.
There are a selection of cushions embroidered with some of my favorite beasts, all made from recycled woolen blankets that have been washed at 90 degrees. I will be adding some more work over the next fortnight.
And now all orders will now be sent out with my new rubber stamped label!
The first socks of 2014 are off the needles.
I love working with Noro yarn, the colours are wonderful and the finished article a joy to wear.
These are knitted in Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn, colour 8
and there is some discussion regarding ownership…
Keeping up with sock requirements for folk around here isn’t easy for a slow knitter like me but a second pair have been started in colour 369.
Meanwhile there are now Badgers on cushions and I hope to update my Etsy shop on Sunday.
I am thinking about Badgers on cushions.
I can’t remember the exact year but around 1982 I stayed with my mum, brother, cousin, uncle and aunt in a house on the South Downs in East Sussex. On top of the Seven Sisters over looking the English Channel, surrounded by beautiful countryside and a short walk from Belle Tout lighthouse we spent a week house sitting and looking after the resident cats. I think it was eight cats in total but there may have been more, all with different personalities and needs to match. But the best thing, the most exciting and unusual thing, happened after dark when a family of Badgers would visit the garden, eat some peanuts, drink some water, play and then leave. Up to five or six badgers, every evening without fail would drop by at around 10pm while we sat in the kitchen with the lights off and watched through the French Doors as they rolled around the lawn playing with each other, for up to an hour and then leave.
