Out of the spinney…

Springtime down the faery path…

Under the gentle arms of hazel,ash and others I now have a place to work,stash,play and breathe. It is a true blessing to be a guardian of this little piece of world which offers me so much inspiration,discovery,hard work and magic. It is a gift to be able to share the space with friends,also to be able to retreat,plan and create. Creatures live here,birds are born here,food is planted,nurtured and picked,fires burn and children play. My new felt work is made here or inspired by the magic within..

When the leaves have gone there is a new lightness.Time to get the Finnish wool out,it is a wonderfully strong but gentle fleece,not too hairy but dense and warm.

Little folk on some beautiful slices of macrocarpa.The spinney is blessed and overshadowed by these tall beasts.They shelter us and other creatures,give us room to climb,provide firewood and furniture…and they smell like pencils.
