I'm halfway through making my last batch of lavender bags this year. But I don't enjoy filling… https://t.co/JmjPYbcPh5
Condensation, making its return with extra gusto. Old house living, hey?
Lovely autumn displays at a certain jolly nice but jolly expensive local (occasional) haunt
Apple picking at my next door neighbour’s again. Local does definitely taste better.
Walking home from school drop off this morning 🌞
The common looking 😍
Not being remotely capable at sewing myself, I am totally in awe of the precision and skill of many of the professionals out there. Here is one! Stealing @tessacomptoncurtainmaker ‘s photos of the excellent pattern matching she achieved using my Rodborough Whitebeam fabric in steely blue, on these box cushions. Thanks Tessa!
I’ve been meaning to follow up on a post I put up recently about feeling cross that my 8 year old’s artwork came home from school with a label of check boxes of ‘success criteria’ slapped on the front of it, causing me to embark on a long rant about art in the National Curriculum. I just thought I should let anyone that commented know, I actually decided to email the head teacher about it (I know I know, annoying parent alert!), and her reply was really great. She totally saw my opinion and they’ve decided to make some changes. Great result! It was never the teachers I was cross at, more the system, but I’m so glad my rant didn’t fall on deaf ears. And here are some of my daughter’s latest characters. With no agenda!
Managing to cut lino with kids around... doing no entertaining other than drawing begins to pay off!
