Isn’t this one of the most beautiful trees? Standing there all glorious in the autumnal sun!
Continuing this weeks theme of leaves and nature, I’ve sat and embroidered a little sampler of leaf designs, not sure when they’ll come in handy but you never know.
I’ve been experimenting with water colours to try and bring more green and nature inside in the winter, they don’t take long to do, but look really effective against a white wall – my funny little brain likes to pretend its alchemy
Even though I’m a few days late to post I’m really enjoying #tolkientober
Day 4: Forest – posting to catch up! The Forest of Fangorn lies on our doorstep (Painted with oil on canvas.) #LordOfTheRings #Nature
Happy #nationalpoetryday2021 as its the 7th of October thought I’d post this haiku!
While its raining outside here’s some wonderfully happy pot marigolds. Aren’t they just so sunny! #FlowersOnFriday
I so don’t know why, but this always makes me smile. It’s a random paving slab in the middle of a field, but it’s a seven – which is of course a magic number. (or the field is #7!)
We may be on course to run out of food and/or petrol but at least we can have #FlowersOnFriday p.s – if you read this and you’re not in the the UK don’t panic!
So I’ve had a bit of a crappy week, and to relax, get my brain into the right space and bee a little bit more zen I’ve sat quietly and embroidered myself a little bumble bee. Its all sewn free hand using a single strand of coloured floss at a time onto a natural (and excitingly eco friendly, recycled calico!) It’s been so lovely to study the photos of bees from the garden…as we have at least five types of bee I might sew one for each.
This lovely little bee was found in the garden today, it was dusted in pollen and looked sparkly in the morning light.
Wishing everyone a happy & safe Thursday. Here’s a bumble bee, in black and white. #savethebees #lovewildlife #MentalHealthMatters
