New Mugs, New Glass and A Quilt

We have found the perfect place to keep our new mugs, bought from our potter friend in Open Studios week. Isn’t the turquoise colour  just gorgeous?

Last week I was sent some new earrings to use in my glass work and this is the piece that they inspired – purple, white and green, a Suffragette piece! 

I came across this quilt a few days ago and loved it. Just look at the work that has gone into it with words from Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, a favourite song that we sing with my choirs.

Chasing Cars
We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own
We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life
Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads
I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me

Suitcase Singers, Dancing for One Billion Rising and Valentine Baking

1    First it was singing which was wonderful! Beautiful choir-babies, all buns sold, I met A, the baby I showed you yesterday and we learned Snow Patrol’s ‘Chasing Cars’ a capella (as all our singing is) in four parts – hard work, great fun and very satisfying indeed  and afterwards……

2    We danced! We were some of the One Billion Rising protest that invited women all over the world to dance today to highlight violence against women and we danced in the Jubilee Wharf Courtyard outside Miss Peapod’s Cafe.

3   This afternoon  I’ve baked the most amazing cakes using fresh eggs, brought to choir this morning by G, as he does each week.  He also brought, especially for me, some beetroot which he pulled up only this morning as I had mentioned last night that I wanted to try making a Chocolate and Beetroot Cake for Valentine’s Day. How much fresher a cake could you have? I’ll put the recipe up later if anyone would like it. It’s so delicious and moist and very chocolatey! If I hadn’t told about the beetroot, no one would guess!

Les Miserables was brilliant! We all enjoyed the film enormously.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers!
