Syrup Sponge, Buttercups and William Morris

Yesterday I made two small syrup sponges, one for us and one for next door. B described his as nectar!

I received a beautiful gift this evening – a photograph of bright yellow buttercups – from an ex-pupil who later became a colleague and of whom I am immensely proud.  This was her message:  “On my walk this afternoon I came across these buttercups Sally, and for some reason I thought of you. I thought I must show these to Sally! So here they are.”

Buttercups from Natalie

William Morris was an author, artist and craftsman as well as a  committed political radical and today is the 183rd anniversary of his birth. I give you a print which he designed and a quotation that I love:

“I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few,
or freedom for a few.”
