I hadn't realised how long it had been since my last post here until I noticed Dave's blog link list ...oooops...6 months or something maaaaad lol Since I last posted we've moved into the new place, had Christmas and are settling down.
LOVE living here- thought I'd show a few pics taken recently in the cold and the rain here in our paddock where the chickens live, very different images to those taken during my earlier posts on the blog.
Before Christmas I was asked to submit a few samples to Stampotique Originals rubber stamps in Arizona(see main blog for links etc) and so along with my usual style of working with perspex, and multi layering I did some simple makes, one of which used the photo taken from the front of the house.
I'm hoping to start journaling lots of texture and pattern inspiration from the garden, getting back to my textile roots again using this type of thing...
I've been taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch which takes place this weekend and amongst the usual Robins, Coal Tits and Jays we've had a BARN OWL!!(if you have speakers play the sound effect- nearly threw me off my chair rofl) AND!! AND!! this morning I was watching our resident Green Woodpecker when he/she was joined by ANOTHER one!! WE HAVE TWO!!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited lol (yes I know, I need to get out more lol) . Dave did a post on the Owl and the Woodpecker/s (no pussycat or peagreen boat available at the time of writing lol) on his blog. So...all in all, the Snowdrops are popping up through the grass, loads of wildlife (foxes stroll through the garden) and the trees are budding again. Can't wait to get planting all the vegetables :0)
