Busy fingers

Camilla has found crochet to be a good lockdown hobby and has created a large blanket from fifty six individual squares.

Summer flowers and stone steps

Linda has been busy creating an amazing painting from Bonsall. It’s the second in a series that started with her previous painting of spring flowers, using the same composition format.

Summer Flowers and Stone Steps in Bonsall

Linda says,

My next one will show Autumn fruits against an aerial view of our garden. The fourth one will, not surprisingly, show a Winter Bonsall scene maybe with some holly and ivy! I plan to exhibit the group in next year’s Bonsall Art Trail exhibition.

Seen from another angle

On a walk recently we got a glimpse of Wirksworth from a place that we don’t often go.  We were surprised to see the church building from a different angle from the one we are used to seeing every week from Coldwell Street.

It’s good to take a fresh look at familiar things, particularly from a distance where you can consider a new perspective or context.
