Easter is already behind us but with its glorious promises and Spring here, we look forward to enjoy every day! For us on the coast, the weather is rather mild with showers never far... Still, we count our blessings!
The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His Heaven -
All's right with the world!
When you think Spring, what comes to mind? For me, it is those wonderful green hills, lambs frolicking, birds singing, jonquils and primroses blooming, the smell of earth warming up with all its rich promises...
Not so long ago I encountered a wonderful artist on Blogland named Fiona. Fiona's home is in Yorkshire and her surroundings are obviously a constant source of inspiration! I thought to share one of her latest creations as she kindly agreed to a commission!
My requests were for one little black sheep and a thatched roof cottage and here it is!
All the way from the British Isles, Yorkshire Dales in felted wool with tiny stitches, both machine and handmade as only Fiona can!
You can find more of this artist's unique creations at her blog 'MarmeladeRose' or on her Etsy shoppe (HERE).
Due to our mildew challenges here on the Pacific NW coast, I thought it best to tuck the wool tapestry in a shadow box and took another photo to showcase Fiona's work but when I checked it out this morning, I discovered an additional element...Do you see it too? Just an illusion of course, unexplained as yet (we were not sure what exactly reflected in the glass).
For those of you who might have a sweet tooth, this citrus cake was delicious (and since I cannot remember where I clipped the recipe, you only have to ask and I will email it!)
