the green and pleasant land

the Dogs Above have rewarded us
the colours of the green and pleasant land are rather wonderful
[all found within a 5 mile radius of the workshop]




and to our delight
they echo the colours in the paintings on the wall
that are our windows to the whirled
from Sally Stafford's studio at Harts Barn

    1. it is. and the weather has been kind

      gentle rain on Monday [when we were mostly stitching indoors]
      summer sunshine yesterday [when we were wandering about and gathering]
      rain again today, to encourage us to keep stitching.

      perfect.

  8. Oh my. Was it almost a year ago that we were dying in the rain here? Makes me yearn for a walk in the woods.

    1. not only dyeing in the rain but also standing in that delightful brook, wetting the felt using our feet!

      hope you and the lovely toast-stealing Atticus and sweet Scout are well - and looking forward to being stateside early next week
