Kalettes, A Tea-Cup and A Song for You

We are enjoying our fresh greens and purples – our Kalettes. I cook them briefly in garlic butter and the water they were washed in – and they are delicious. Thanks to our allotment friends for giving us the baby plants.

One of our Christmas presents was a freestanding tea cup pouring liquid into a splash. It’s a 3D printed piece based on a Bobby Duke original and we love it.

This song came my way today and pleased me greatly. I want to learn it! Given the crazy politics in our country, we do indeed ‘need each other now.’

Sculpture, Angel and A Poem

Outside the bank in Truro we came across a sculpture. I need to find out more about it.

The following very moving poem came my way and I have permission to share it. It is one of the ‘ghost generation’ in the sculpture above.

Eternity by Kim Ridgeon

If only no-one could see the borders, whether from outer space on here on our blue planet. Thank you for this, Kim and Jean for introducing me to it.

Chinese Deity, Embroidery and Peeler

Our lovely neighbour is home again after being away in China for a month where she and her brother have been constructing an amazing sculpture, the Chinese God, Thousand Mile Eye.

Sue brought us home presents –  a beautifully embroidered scarf for me and a super sharp peeler for Mr S.

Beautiful scarf

Navajo Wall Hanging, Dye Chart and 3D Printed Vase

While we were at The Hubble Trading Post, we treated ourselves to a beautiful piece of Navajo weaving and then, when we were in Monument Valley, also on Navajo Nation  lands, we found a pretty dye chart which shows some of the natural dyes used in the making of the rugs and wall hangings.

Our eldest daughter is visiting for a while to help winterise the boat and she brought a couple of presents with her, elegant 3D printed vases, one red and one black, shapes that would be impossible to make in any other way.
