I love raindrops highlighted by the sun.
Although it was very cold and the wind bitter, there was a wonderfully blue sky and when caught in sunbeams, a lovely feeling of apricity.
I just caught a rainbow over the rooftops this morning.
November 5th was my lovely Mum’s birthday. As a little girl she thought that everyone was celebrating her birthday with fireworks and, of course, I think of her especially on this day, though truth to be told, I think about her most days.
I keep Mum’s buttonhole scissors in my sewing kit but have never used them for their proper purpose. The second photo shows how they cut just the buttonhole.
Our poster asking for local stories from St Euny graveyard has brought me a tempting family saga via Facebook so we have been down to the graveyard today to search out the ‘massive granite cross’ raised to the memory of my correspondent’s Great Grandmother. We haven’t yet found it but did come across a couple of stones we hadn’t noticed before (not surprising really – there are hundreds of stones from 1700 onwards!) These stones are to a Father and his two year old son and are, like many others, telling a touching story – yet another that I want to research more fully.
1 We had a lovely day out in Truro today and the highlight for me was the …..
2 ……… Quilting Exhibition, Saints of Cornish Churches, in Truro Cathedral. The works were fabulous! I give you just a small selection here and am sorry that I didn’t visit earlier to spread the word about them. Sadly, today was the last day. I hope each quilt will be going to its relevant Church or will be displayed somewhere else as they are magnificent pieces of art. Do read the information about the particular Saint depicted and about the artist’s intentions. Please do click on each photo to appreciate the intricacies and the beauty of these works of art.
3 After three weeks away I was able to sing with The Inglehearts again and what an uplifting experience that always is!
