Fabric, Sewing and An Oak Tree

27 Aug

A few days ago I ordered some Ghanaian batik fabric and it arrived today, just glorious! Now to decide what to make with my one metre.

This came my way today. I shall probably declare many days National Stay at Home and Sew Day!

Our brief evening walk today took us along Church Lane and under the ancient Oak tree. There were lots of acorns and these……..  Any ideas?

    Galls won’t kill the plant, usually. That one is kind of attractive, isn’t it?

      It is isn’t it? Unlike the Knapper gall which was nearby and which I have posted about since this comment. 🙂

    Is the mystery bud on an oak tree? All I could find is “Artichoke gall develops in oak bud”

      You are right as our tree surgeon son-out-law confirmed when they were here a few days later. Thank you for your input. 🙂
