Al Fresco Studio
I have to confess to being a total sun addict. By April I'm desperate to soak up some Vitamin D and to feel the sun's rays on my skin. So this morning the sun was beating down on my garden. Off came the patio table cover, out came the clay and tools and as I peeled off 2 woolly handknits my skin breathed a warm sigh of relief. 'This' it shouted ' is the onset of summer! Get your kit off and start basking!' What is it about the sun that makes me so happy and buzzing with energy? I feel as if I've shaken the winter's shackles from my limbs and can be seen a leaping and a hopping like a demented lamb around the lawn, much to the embarassment of my pre-teen child! So a constructive morning was had by me.
This is what I made. These pieces will be turned into rings and brooches and who knows what.
And the energy continued and my hens made their 'happy' noises, as I potted up 14 tomato plants, tidied the garden and sewed up a couple of doggy sweaters for chihuahuas. The icing on the cake was an al fresco salad for lunch. Here comes summer, y'all. Forget the SPF30 and soak up those rays!
