Month 9

Seems to have become first day of the next month, rather than last day of the actual month…

A month of appreciating family and friends. Of foraging for fruit and making it into jelly or steeping it for warming alcoholic imbibing in the middle of the darkest winter months. A month where, as always, I give grateful thanks for the beauty of the place I live. Here’s my month…



Day 234

Gathering brambles for a couple hours earlier gained me a walk and 2kg of juicy berries. All cooked up now and straining ready to make jelly tomorrow…and cake! Meanwhile I realised once more that a favoured pair of trousers desperately needed a better top to go with, £3.60 later I’m halfway there, to be finished in the morning (yes it’s another variation on my new favoured top shape!). It’s viscose though, I just love to sew with viscose (heavy on the sarcasm) thought so far it’s not been too bad!
