A Big Catch Up

No, I haven't left the country - well, only briefly.  This might be a longish post so you might want to get yourself a cuppa and see what I have been up to.  First of all, we had a long weekend in Brussels in March (it's now the end of May!) and though we left unusually hot, sunny weather in the UK, Brussels was cold and grey.  Here are a few photos from our trip:-


We then had another break down in the lovely rural Essex countryside to see family and attend a funeral and although it rained most of the time, it was nevertheless a peaceful few days.  Here are a few more photos of different jaunts out and about including:-  Waterperry Gardens, Rousham House and St Osyth.


And lastly, photos from last week's visit to William Morris' beautiful Oxfordshire home, Kelmscott Manor:-


Creativity-wise, Nada, I'm afraid.  I have been having a very muse-less time just lately and although I have tried to pick up various projects to work on, I have had to give up on them due to lack of enthusiasm and inspiration.    However, I did stick at one project for a short while and did a little more work on my Spirit Cloth.  To see how it started click HERE.  It still isn't completely finished but is getting there very slowly.


 

I feel bad as  I know several ladies have made a few different cloths in the time it has taken me to do mine!
I even got as far as piecing together another one, which is going to be more unstructured and not so pretty- here's a sneak peak:-
