My daily walks are still being tackled with great gusto and enthusiasm, a phenomenom which owes much to the glorious weather we've had this week. Let's see if I am still as enthusiastic if I wake up to wind and rain one morning! The landscape may be flat in the part of the country where I live (not good training for a Coast to Coast hike) but it is still beautiful. I've been accompanied every day by the song of skylarks who soar in the big skies we have in East Anglia and this week I spotted a hare, sitting statuesque at the edge of a field before bounding away.
There are also cowslips everywhere in our village, lining the paths and covering the meadows.
There are so many that one or two have self seeded in our garden.
My walks have also inspired my stitching this week and I've made these two cushions.
A couple of rather funny looking pheasants
These are going to another home but I fancy making some for myself, although that is not likely to happen soon...
My short break from work is over and already I'm planning and getting ready for another two back to back weekends away teaching at Missenden Abbey and I've several pieces of work to complete for an exhibition at the end of next month... better crack on!
