The kindness of September


Looking through my September photographs makes me appreciate
the loveliness of time well spent.  Craft workshops, an art exhibition,
good books, a mini holiday, cinema visits and meet ups with friends.


There’s been a trip down country to see my sister in Witney, Oxfordshire,
where we visited the fabulous Burford Garden Centre.


We stepped back in time on a visit to the Cotswold Woollen Mill
at Letchlade.  It was so exciting to come across these old textile design
sample books in their museum.




At long last I got to meet up with Jayne Emerson, textile designer
and creator of the No Rules Textile Society that I’ve been a member
of since Covid times and the thing that has kept me connected to
like minded folk.





The wandering welder enjoyed himself as well and came away
with some fabric pieces to cover his waistcoats with.


I’ve seen a couple of great films. The latest Julia Robert’s one
and the Fisherman’s Friend sequel.



I’m ploughing my way through books at a right rate of knots.
This Lesley Pearce thriller had me gripped from start to finish.


Don’t read Bob Mortimer’s autobiography in bed, you won’t
get to sleep for laughing.




I’ve neglected my blog of late but maybe October will see a
return to it with more of the above hopefully.

  1. What a busy and productive September you had. Your trip to the mill looks fun as well!.And I loved The Fisherman's Friend! There is a YOuTube video of the real guys singing alonside the nearly tone-deaf actors playing them. Makes me laugh. Lucky for you to meet someone who inspired you so much.
    Happy WOYWW, on time!

  10. You've definitely been a busy girl! You are obviously passionate about textiles, so it sounds like you had the perfect trip! I love the tub full of pumpkins - the very epitome of fall! We haven't been to the movies for 3 years now, and covid is still pretty rampant so we will probably wait for them to come to us. But I might look up some of those books! Have a great week!

  11. Welcome back, you've been missed! What a lot you've packed into the last few weeks. I'm swooning over the Victorian auction posters and giggling at Philip perusing the bookshelves.
    I bet the Bob Mortimer book is a cracking read. The George/Julia film looks like a good watch for a wet afternoon, I loved Bali when we went in the 90s. I'm excited about seeing The Woman King & The Lost King in the next week or so. xxx
