So Much to Share.
Hmm, I seem to recall I was going to blog regularly once more. I think that was what I said wasn't it? Ah well, the best of intentions and all that. So what's been happening since last time? More taking of an afternoon stroll with parasol to hand.
Almost got it now.
A big fat roast dinner with my three eldest all in one house at the same time, not something that happens much now, but lovely when it does.
Davey sorted our extremely overgrown campfire area and restored it to its former beauty. We have already had so many evenings sitting by its warmth, drinks in hand and barbecue food close by.
Sometimes Lauren worked on her degree by it...(please note the decanter lurking close by filled with the most gorgeous mix of our homemade blackberry wine blended with a red to make the BEST wine EVER!
Sometimes we just ate by it or had quizzes with Lucy as quiz master
but always we have enjoyed it - lots.
In the garden the blackcurrants, gooseberries and redcurrants are growing away with promises of scrumptious things to come
and dear Biscuit is still sitting beautifully on her eggs...hurrah!
Davey is making elderflower wine and I will probably be making the first batch of elderflower cordial later today. I just love the stuff don't you?
Well, the work front has been busy... manic actually with a whole pile of these Little House Notebooks being embroidered and packaged before heading off to new homes.
I really enjoy making these notebook covers with their mix of hand and freehand machine embroidery, particularly since I added the option of personalising them with a name. I stitch away and wonder about the person receiving it, whether they will use it for sketching or lists - I do love list - or thoughts about life.
I also had my Ship, Ship Sailing Game featured in Cornish World, one of the lovely magazines centered around life here in Cornwall and the many artists who run businesses in our gorgeous county (including me that is!).
A lovely end to the week I must say.
Well, that's me done. Sorry it was so very, very long.
Bye for now x
