We have a windy evening and hail showers outside. Today we went for a walk and I collected some ivy and red berries and greenery to add to the fireplace.
I have been busy, now finding time to reflect on how quickly the days fly by when I am occupied with a project that takes up all my thinking time as I plan and focus on all I need to do to complete the task. The task was a patchwork quilt and I did manage to successfully finish it. So as promised I am sharing it with you.
My gift was well received, a box of beautiful flowers arrived as a huge thank you, with a message to say she will treasure it.
It has been my own birthday, I had my birthday in sunshine and by the sea, as we went on a winter break to Malta. It was lovely to feel the warm sunshine, sit outside and enjoy the views. We did have some stormy weather and rain showers but who cares. Some walks took us through orange trees, with lemon and pomegranate orchards. I collected some objects to draw that I will share again. I bought some sepia ink and a note book from a little shop selling pens and paper, products made in Rome. I look forward to experimenting and writing with the sepia ink.
