I've just received this colourful card from Emma who is celebrating her 50th birthday soon and organised a swap of 50 cards as a special reminder of the day. There are so many elements to this card - paper, paint, stitch, text, fabric and more. Go and look at her blog to see more of her work and the wonderful place where she lives!
Meanwhile, back here on the pavement we found this small but perfectly formed bird's nest, probably a bluetit's I think, pulled out of the tree by those black and white terrorists, the magpies. Later we found smashed eggs. A little drama but quite sad.
I finally got round to stitching this mini-quilt; the image appeared in a previous post. I'm gradually building up a selection which I hope to put together into a larger hanging. One day!
