Walking, painting and sewing, some of my favourite things to do. I’ll start with painting…. below is my little fairy house which I painted last summer. It has withstood the winter weather rightly. I made it out of a stone I found in the garden, I thought it would be the perfect shape to paint a little house using the triangular edges for a roof. It is nestled on the ground amongst the bushes and is a big hit amongst little visitors. Can you see the two wee faces peeping out the top windows?
I went out for a little stroll today with my camera in hand. I just love the countryside with all its ‘forty shades of green’ we get here in Ireland.
Further down the road we have bog land, where turf is cut. Turf is a fuel we use in the winter to heat our homes.
Another few steps and we are at this little stream under a stony bridge.
On the way back I just had to take a picture of this cow, she seemed to be saying, “Are you looking at me”?
Before I go I would like to show you what I have been working on during the week. I am making two patchwork cushions for my summer seat. I’m really enjoying all the hand sewing. It is made mostly from little dresses my daughters used to wear, so it holds a lot of cherished memories.
I spent a while in Chicago almost 30 years ago, where I bought the little teddy print fabric which I fell in love with, proving that I even had a fabric addiction back then!
Bye for now!
