Some more brooches were made- this time from pieces of hand-embroidered linen that were left over after cutting out baby slippers- and I didn't want to throw these remnants away. Some of the handwork is very old, and starting to come away from the linen a bit, which is quite characterful I think.
Yellow is all around these days- the lawn is covered in daisies and we went for a coastal walk last week and there were huge bushes of glossy bright wildflowers like the ones in the top photo. And spreading gorse, of course.
Have you heard the new Bob Dylan album? I'm into it, especially the song Long and Wasted Years (can't find it online anywhere except spotify) and I think it will be playing on our stereo all summer. He seems to be getting even better with age.
