Another collage

Had a great day today - took Georgia to a beach in County Durham. The glass industry in Sunderland use to dump glass waste out at sea years ago and now the beach at Seaham has lots of glass pebbles. We collected a jar full - Georgia found the biggest nugget of blue - I found a few little pieces of yellow - but most are clear and green.

We lunched in the supermarket cafe (to G's delight) and then went shopping for slippers and jeans.

The sculpted head is from St James church in Hatfield. We visited in June for a very special memorial service for Cully's Aunty Margaret. She was a stylish lover of jazz, so Uncle David arranged for a jazz band to play in the churchyard while friends and relatives remembered her in the sweetest atmosphere on one of the few sunny days of the summer.

The summer was so grey

The summer was so grey in the UK this year, but sometimes grey skies are beautiful and make a landscape more interesting. This sheep picture was taken in August in Northumberland.

And another holiday collage.

September Morn

Another collage from our holiday at Badachro and some early morning shots of the plants in the Garden at Kilworth House Hotel in Leicester. I was there for some work product marketing meetings. The best bit was the lovely hotel and getting to drive Bentley GTs at great speed on a track.

August collage

The first collage I made on our holiday to Badachro, North West Scotland. Our car broke and the weather was rainy, but it was cozy and relaxing in our little cottage and I got to play with paper and glue and paint.

You can double click on the image to see it in detail.

Lots of catching up to do after the summer. Over the next few days I'll update with some images of things we have been up to and some of the things I've made (even some new collages!) Here is the first image - Georgia and me under the stripey crochet banket I made earlier this year. Warm and soft and over-the-top colourful. I am making a felt bag for myself at the moment with a much more subdued colourway - I'm trying to finish by the end of the weekend, so will post a photo then. You can just catch sight of it behind our heads.
