Last weekend with Ian at his parents, I stitched solidly Friday evening and all of Saturday , taking photographs very early Sunday morning (before coffee even!) and made my online submission to SAQA Horizons. Cross Fingers! With it being so hot , I took my lunches out into the gardens at work, cycling round to see how the David Nash installations were going , see patterns in the trees everywhere, admiring this lovely sweet chestnut.
A week of contrast of scales. We had a staff photo in the giant olympic rings in front of the orangery - I'm towards the bottom of the black ring ( actually dark purple violas). I'm the proud 'mum' of some germinating fern spores of the Anogramma ascensionis - Ascension Island Parsley Fern. They may be less than 1mm in size but I'm thrilled.
