Keeping it Seasonal
Apple Tree broaches
Trying to keep workshops seasonal. A little taster of things to come. I have used the lovely Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady as a back drop for many photos.
Spring nest workshop one I made earlier
To early to mention my favourite season, but its the book I want to show you anyone read 'The Country Bizarre 'by Andy Pittaway and Bernard Scofield?
It was a series of magazines that were originally published between 1970-74. using an underground press. It appeared seasonally in 11 issues with a patchwork of country matters. It really is a medley of nature, ecology, craftwork, folklore and poetry. I found mine on eBay quite cheap. I LOVE IT .
