My system had a bit of a shock this morning when I had to get up early, for me, and accompany my DH to a local village where he was selling (he hoped) his photocards at a Craft Fair. We woke to a frosty but sunny start and I soon found consolation in the early start by exploring the village while DH set up.
The paths were littered with piles of frosty leaves in varying shapes and sizes.
Walking round to the church the light was beautiful,
I would have liked to have explored the churchyard but sadly couldn't manoevre the gate open.
Walking a little further and greeting one or two dog walkers who were taking an early stroll I came to a newly ploughed field and found some interesting stitching potential.
These are not the strongest of marks as the furrows are fairly shallow but they have design potential.
This is the view looking back to the church along the field edge.
I wouldn't wish to be this tall but it's a good indicator of the angle of the sun.
Wandering back to the main road I came across this young lady (I think) who was very interested in me,
and venturing down a lane I found a beautiful distressed door.
You probably need to click on it to see the lovely paint swirls.
By the time I got back to the village hall DH had finished setting up and the fair was about to open. We had a very pleasant day with a few sales and met quite a few people we hadn't seen for some time and to top it all off we won a hamper of Christmas foodie goodies in the raffle. Yum!
There has been some creativity going on here this week.
