Behind the beach dunes at Caister.. Used to drag boats up and down the beach by fishermen, these are masterpieces of gentle dissolution

Lurking In Daisies, a Tale of Cat Staff

Cat, in the heat, lurking behind a very small daisy-patch

Last night, after it got dark, she was meandering around the front garden and sitting on the outside windowledge of the living-room.. In a moment of cat-staffery, I opened the bottom part of the window.. This morning, she very imperiously demanded her "new cat door"...

Morrisons own-brand, in the Tesco car-park.. Decidedly mushy..

Goodbye Stall

More than twenty years ago, I had this made as a custom-built kite stall, by a little man on a back road in Lincolnshire.. it has served me well, and been to lots of places, but in the last few years the game of pick-it-up-and-take-it-there-and-bring-it-back palled so badly (and the profits thereof were so small) that I haven't been anywhere with it except into my yard.. We put it up for the last time today, covered it with excess tat from my house and Abi's and sat under it in the rain, watching the Art Car Boot die a soggy death.. As with all these things, I'm sorry and glad to see it go.. And it has been sold..

End of an era..

This is my entry for "Dislocations" the CQ exhibit for FOQ.. I'm not hopeful it will be selected, as there have been twice as many entries as there are places.. Wait and see..
I have made a new class based on this and will be teaching it from November (to be called "Home from Home")

ETA, 13th July, just heard that this one is In for the show.. Festival of Quilts, Birmingham, UK, folks..
