cow parsley in stitch.

Well the weeks go by with much the same routine. lockdown is loosening a little but for us older people, much the same and fearing a second spike we won't be out that much where there are people about. Having our food and other stuff delivered or collecting it from outside the stores.
 Working on this piece at the moment. I seem awfully good at starting new pieces and hopeless at finishing them so want to get this one completed.
 Below is the other cover of the butterfly concertina book.

 This is me on my birthday with cake and sun hat tells you it was hot.
 Ending with a shot of dandelions from one of our daily walks.

Perpetual Journal April 2020

 Happy May Day to you all! Here are my pages from my perpetual journal (that is a nature diary you add to year on year)  for April. I have had a little more time for drawing and am making the most of my journal. It is so interesting to compare the notes from last year. At first things seemed early but now we seem to be on the same page for blossom and butterflies etc. The Guild has had to postpone the Rodmarton Exhibition to Sept 2021, not surprisingly, so no work deadlines for me for a while!

 I finished the turquoise circle in a square. It is called ' lark song spirals from the heart of the field'. It is 19cm square. I have it in mind to make a series of small pieces in the same fabric that will stay smallish and hang directly on the wall. Lastly I will leave you with one of my neighbours cattle, up close and inquisitive, Because it makes me smile every time. Hope you can find the energy and good spirits to dance around a maypole today- metaphorical or otherwise!
