Got very wet taking this photo and nearly missed it, a rainbow straight out of the sea with a faint double, and extraordinary light.

Weaving and stitching

Garden tapestry
Two textile pieces made as christmas gifts, the weaving was for my sister and just made the last post for Christmas, posted on the 23rd.

If you down to the woods

Sprites and teddy

All the figures in the stitched piece above were found in the shapes made during the dyeing process by uneven patterning, all I did was picked them out and enhanced them.
Hope you all had a great christmas.

Hope you enjoyed your Solstice day, we dressed the tree, visited friends to celebrate and watched the finals of Strictly, a good day.
Happy Solstice to one and all.

Santa and a slice of lemon

We were having dinner on Sunday night when we hear Christmas music, opening the curtains what do we behold but Santa and a light festooned sleigh being towed behind a 4x4, we waved, he waved back, how surreal.
The moon looked like a slice of lemon.
