“Birdland”


dsc00690I’ve been making this bracelet for my friend Becca’s birthday… I knew that button box would come in handy! Apart from that it’s been a strange week on the mountain, with spring bursting out all over and me nearly knocking myself out with the lawnmower. The swallows haven’t made it back yet, they’re late. “What time do you call this swallows? I’ve been waiting up”

Instead there is a huge lesser spotted woodpecker monopolizing the bird-feeder and looking outlandish with his crazy bright feathers.

Yesterday I shared my birthday with Shakespeare and was spoilt rotten by my wonderful friends and family. ( The card above is by Claire Baker who also graduated from CCAD’s Textiles and Surface Design course) So, 42!! Good grief , that came around a bit fast, time I got some things done…

  3. Hi Kim – Happened upon your blog this evening whilst busy writing my own. Love the stuff I’ve seen so far, though I haven’t really ‘explored’ very much. I’ll send you an invite to ‘Elliotts In Munich’ if you like. It would be nice to catch up after 25 years! All the best. David.
