Sorry about the blur in this pic is is at 140x zoom- the limit of my camera. It is of a beacon fire to celebrate the Jubillee on the summit of Coniston Old Man mountain. It was part of a series of celebratory beacons all over the country. Back in Oxford there was a beacon at the top of Magdalen Tower where the choir sing on May morning (shared before with you).
Moon rising over the campsite.
Same pic with different camera settings.
I bought these fabrics in Barrow in Furness from this shop. I was all out of white fabric- I’d started eyeing up pillowcases and wondering about their cotton content.
Now we are back I could collect “Old Man of the Forest” from a local gallery. It is a felt wallhanging by a lady called Linda Moss. I found it so inspiring. There is an interview with her on this blog. She like me sees faces in trees. I spoke to her briefly on the phone in the gallery.
I think he will be in good company in the craft room. I couldn’t bear to put this plaster tree man away while we are trying to sell.
This is hot off the sewing machine- Stephanie of Loft Creations’ Wringer Washer Quilt.
The little circles were made with Contemporary Cottage by Georgia Jennerett for Red Rooster Fabrics. I had some 1/16th (9″x11″) which made either 2 backgrounds or 2 circles each.
The background will be a Cranston Village print.
Haunted Town is all bonded ready to sew in my spare spare time.
Finally I leave with a pic of my new spatula and icing knife- aren’t they perfect with my mixing bowl!
