A Road Less Travelled............

I haven't written a post here for a while..........making big adjustments in my life and getting used to a new way of being. And licking my wounds a bit.
But I have been working in my studio and making plans for the future (more about that in a future post, but it IS exciting!) And I have been clocking up a lot of miles on my bike. The weather has been so settled and beautiful for the time of year that it is a pity not to be out in it when the sun is shining and the air is clear and exhilarating.
Here's a new piece I'm working on - still plenty to do, but I'm pretty sure about where this is going.

And here are a few pictures of my beautiful part of the world in the middle of winter, as seen from the saddle of a bicycle.

Fungal Musings

It's the time of year when these glorious red-topped fly agaric (amanita muscaria) toadstools pop up under the pine trees.

They make rather wonderful props for a bit of creative photography:

This one was so perfect in form it almost didn't look real! To give an idea of scale, the little needle-felted hedgehog is around three inches (7 cms) tall.

he liked the view from the top.

......and had some fun with a little elfin friend!

Tansey insisted on giving it a try as made a fine little stool for her!
