I saw three ships...............

I make a moon...
he needs a crown.

then he needs friends....
they need crowns.

then 3 ships passed by..
they needed a sea to sail on and sky to sail under.

I need my family..and my friends
they are the most precious things that touch my life.
May you be touched by precious things, that you can gather into your life
this magical Winter Festival.

Thank you for being here with me
Just for this moment
Love Lynn xx

Cold and Dark...........

Its cold and dark, a twinkle of stars on the nights sky.

We wait.

We wait for the magic.

I keep things simple, our food simple, the house stands waiting to be dressed.
I burn incense.
I listen to the rooks and crows in the twilight fields.
I want to capture, that look they give you, that all seeing look...........



before the lights sparkle and the dark is forgotten.

My latest embroidery

A Jessie Chorley Work shop

I had a very quick visit to London yesterday to go to a Jessie Chorley Workshop. 
I set  off with my little case full of snippets and pretty s to play with, you probably recognise the glittery twinkle stamped fabric from my Winter Fairys box.

 Jessie had provided us packs to work with they contained a heart and dove and some beautiful papers and embroidery thread. I chose to make some bunting or at least make a good start on it, these samples are my efforts on the day (sore fingers). We were able to use lots of lovely stamps and all sorts of papers and fabric pieces Jessie had provided
Other industrious lady's decorated beautiful hearts cut from old book covers  , and painted card doves with silk ribbons and bells, some made gorgeous Christmas cards, so many beautiful things, so many lovely lady's.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
A sparkly twinkly start to November

Remembering

  

I run, I dream, words come to me and sometimes I see a shadow, a watcher on the path, then I look again and they are gone, part of nature, part soul. I have shared my words and feelings today with you. Nature she is magical and tangible she takes my heart and whispers her secrets to me and then I remember then it all makes sense 




Swans........

I felt them coming, tilting back I looked into the blue sky.

My ribs opened up into the light and from my chest a swan flew long necked free.

 Her brothers and sisters followed, seven white swans beating high into the autumn day.

Against the leaves against the tide of the drab chocolate ebbing water, where upon the bank shiny conkers lay, half buried in leaf mould smelling of something spicy herbal precious.

 Half remembered memories from another time, then such beauty fell upon me it sparkled in the hedgerow and painted itself upon the hawthorns upon the tall hemlocks upon the swans as they faded from me.
