Early Saturday morning...

and the sun has just gone behind the clouds but  the light is brighter and the golden daffodils glow, pale yellow primroses sparkle in the morning air. Birds are a cheeping and twittering  with flurries of chasing and darting in the bushes whilstcollecting magpies gather twigs for home building. A joy is in the air that we have turned a corner and Spring is nearly officially here with Winter banished to the dark reaches for  a while. Sewing is progressing on Daphne's Glove project and you can follow us all as a small group of artists on the blog called "A Group Gathering". Clay is being turned into teapots and cups and saucers ready for the Summer Show at Porthminster Gallery. A busy time ahead with work in mind for The Brindley Art Centre in October but that is rushing ahead too fast and I yearn for things to be slow , to savour the change in seasons, the development of work because only by taking ones time can you learn and absorb what has gone right , what can be done better, what surprises have occurred and lead you down the next path in progression as a maker...

Spring has arrived this....

Sunday morning the birds are fluttering and chasing one another in amongst the hedgerows, daffodils are beginning to burst forth and the blue sky is appearing from behind the grey curtains! A Sunday for gardening and enjoying birdsong, pale yellow primroses, cream Christmas roses. Boots are waiting by the back door and I cant wait to feel the chill wind in my hair and the warm sun occasionally  telling me Spring is here I will warm and cheer you as much as I can ! Tomorrow is a day for sewing and the project to take up my time is Daphne's glove  a rabbit has appeared to tell the tale she is just waiting her outfit which I confess to being quite excited about.  Photos of progress will be taken and I will share with you treasures found , stitches stitched wheels ready to be turned. Today a day of rest ( well resting the mind whilst I revel in the garden ) so I thought a quick catch up before I wrap myself up in scarf and boots  to say have a lovely Sunday wherever you are, maybe taking tea....
