Good morning my friends. I’m back from my wanderings around Britain – having been to Bickington (Devon), Shoshi’s home (Devon), Widecombe in the Moor (Devon), Torquay (Devon), Quainton (Buckinghamshire), Beeston (Nottinghamshire), and finally, Stoke on Trent (Staffordshire) to Sarah’s shed. For those not in Britain, a fair trip from North Wales to the South West of Britain, then across to the London area, up to the North Midlands then across to Wales – with a mileage of around 1000 miles! It was great – and I really will show you the photos… So disoriented have I been since getting back that at 11pm last night I suddenly realised it was Wednesday today!
So my desk this morning displays a distinct lack of activity – mainly because, since returning home, I have been making gold cloaks ready for young kings to wear in the Santa Parade in a couple of weeks (gold because they are representing the fairtrade shop in town which is helping celebrate 50 years of fairtrade products), and rapidly knitting little Christmas stockings for my grand daughter who is raising money to go with World Challenge on a trip of a lifetime to China! Consequently no time for my things… Christmas cards, stuff for a three day craft stall in a fortnight, Christmas presents…. you know the sort of thing!
So, a pair of specs – new, and brilliant for the close work of pergamano; my sweetie bag – essential; on the green cutting mat is a small pile of experiments from before I went away – not touched since I got back; front right is the pile of pergamano magazines I took to my course – some done! yay!!! – and a brochure from Brunel Manor Hotel – where I stayed whilst on my pergamano course, and is amazing; back left is my name badge from the course and a little night light – ready for completing one of the projects from the course. The photo frame given me at the crop still doesn’t have a picture in it – haven’t been near the printer!
And that’s it. Woke this morning at silly o’clock and thought I should post so I can come see all your far more interesting space… so now that’s just what I intend to do – in between making yet more cloaks for kings, of course!
Take care, my friends – I do trust this finds you well, and in less of a state of disarray than it finds me.
