November in pictures…well mostly.

IMAG8096

What I have learnt this month is – preparing for an exhibition is more time-consuming than I’d imagined – but also great fun.

November has been divided between normal daily life; walking the Delinquent Dog, taxiing teenagers, blah, blah, blah, stitching, stitching and a lot more stitching and the occasional out-of-this-world experience (oh yes!).

I’ve mentally planned so many posts this month and delivered none of them, so here instead, is my month in pictures…

A lot of wet walks…

IMAG7983

Not quite, but nearly, daily strolls to see the last of the leaves on the oak…IMAG8218

And to watch the hedge finally turning.

Frost, at last…

IMAG8250

And fog…

IMAG8220

Lots of fog.

IMAG8023

Some incredible natural lighting effects…

IMAG8185

But an inability to take decent photos indoors.

IMAG8158

Love having staring matches with the sheep…

IMAG8064

And meeting unexpected chaps like this – (at Tring Auctions – must go back, it was brilliant!).

IMAG8272

Finally getting ‘Hidcote’ mounted and ready for the show…

IMAG8284

And ‘Tree’.

IMAG8256

Loving being able to see through the hedges again…

IMAG8213

The graceful beech trees…

IMAG8261

And yet more fog.

IMAG8133

Visiting Hyper Japan – truly ‘otherworld-stuff’ and far more fun than I could have imagined.

IMAG8139

Sampling this…

IMAG8223

Framing this…

And thinking to myself, ah well, it will soon be time to start preparations for Christmas.

Hope you’re having a good month. Hope to be back on slightly more regular basis very soon – but well, you know how it is!

Happy stitching!

  1. You have been busy both stitching and walking. Your new pieces are beautiful and I love the title Hidcote it conjures up an immediate picture in my mind from just the word and I think you have captured the essence brilliantly. My fave picture is the fost there is always something majical about frost and mysterious about fog! Your newly framed blue / yellow painting reminds me of a college project years ago when I was researching Klee and Mondrian for a textile print. Christmas prep going very slowly here – bathroom still not finished and mums visit is now imminent!

    1. Never enough time is there, I know the feeling. I haven’t done a thing for Christmas yet, but to be fair, that’s not unusual for me. Once this weekend is over, I’ll be able to give it my attention. Good luck with everything!

    1. Hope you’re recovering well. November isn’t the glitziest of months is it, but there’s no denying the beauty that some dull weather can bring. I’m very pleased to be able to see the structure of the trees again, I love the shapes of twisting branches.

It would be lovely to hear your thoughts...
