This was so much fun, I have backed them with some fantasic  blue fabric. Nicola Wood produced several designs for Heals in the early to mid 1960’s. Her work is rather distinctive, all the pieces I have come across have a very painterly, abstract, expressionist quality. ‘Vibration’ is typical of this style.  The fabric is 100% cotton barkcloth, very typical of the period.

Jonny just gets the feel of the landscape around here, wonderful undulating hills, ever changing hues of green and the autumn colours can take your breath away. I keep telling him to paint small domestic paintings (hoping they will sell) but he can’t help himself and needs to do BIG as the vista’s are BIG and sweeping, from one side of ones vision to the other.

Cider making

Hard work with so many apples this year, what a difference a year makes. It’s such fun with friends, who this year did all the work, i find my new hip a bit achey when it’s chilly and standing too long, getting there though.

Must say a lack of male off spring was noticed!! Well done girls. Jonny spent next day pasteurising lots of bottles of delicious apple juice hopefully there will be some left for our happy glampers next year. More news on the caravans soon…….
