I’ve been sorting through my fabric stash for stuff that I can put into the sewing box for LiveWire 3. I think the felt will be the best for her, both bright and easy to sew.
As I am writing this post, an Edward Thomas poem has been read on the news with a comment that the thaw is now happening over most of the UK. About time for some further North, where there have even been airdrops of essential foodstuffs in Cumbria, to villages cut off for 5 days.
Thaw by Edward Thomas
Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed
The speculating rooks at their nests cawed
And saw from elm-tops, delicate as flower of grass,
What we below could not see, Winter pass.
Delightful isn’t it, the thought that the rooks are observing the coming of Spring which we, as yet, can’t always see.
Here is another shot of Godrevy taken a couple of days ago when the last shreds of snow were still to thaw.
