 How is everyone's holidays? With lovely friends we got up to a little knit graffiti

We all went to Dartington gardens and walked along the river to Totnes.


 Had a lovely homey day today as it was raining all day
Tomorrow is a workshop day, we will be book binding I feel very blessed as when I run a workshop or get another artist in my home. Everyone who comes is always lovely especially important when in your home, crafters are like gardeners, always a joy to be with and I'm sure tomorrow will be no exception. Sidmouth poppy is waving her baking wand and bringing cakes. I look forward to showing you the photos of Bodkin workshops at home. see you tomorrow Claire from Sidmouth poppy, Tracey from the Yew group, Angie from Sidmouth choir and Tiff from Dottie Angel, Nina our book binding expert and me Hesta from Bodkin.  Here's to learning something new with friends.

Forget-me-nots and Fishermen

 The Pattern for these fellows is from loop.


My little Spring fad at the mo is making woolly nests and pods which I crochet then felt in the washing machine, I don't really have a Patten, just go round and round and its fun not know what size they will come out like..

 Me showing you the bumper crop

 Down the allotment shed

 Back home putting them in bunches

 Took them to the shop and sold them all outside that morning.
 When I was little I thought, when I am a adult I would  to sell flowers in jam jars for a living on a little table. Just like on darling buds of may. well it felt very close.
