Postcards in Isolation

Our lovely neighbour is an artist and has been part of the Postcards in Isolation project, explained below.  She has been drawing ‘”Little Lockdown Pleasures,” the things that have given her pleasure while in lockdown. Because we live next door to each other we have been able to ‘meet’ over the wall throughout and this has been special for us both, staving off the worst of the feeling of isolation. Here is the postcard that she made of one of her pleasures.

Postcards in Isolation  was started by WildWorks, recognising that lots of people are not connected digitally. If you were shielding and not able to see your family and friends, then receiving a little personal artwork might prove cheering. It works by people nominating friends or family members to receive an art postcard. WildWorks artists then make the cards and hand write a message. Each card is unique. They  are also making cards for St Petroc’s, a local charity for the homeless, and Age Concern. Here are three more of Sue’s postcards which have gone out to cheer people up.  What a delightful and spirit-lifting idea.

The cards are free, but as this is not a funded project they ask that people make a donation if they feel able to. https://wildworks.biz/projects/postcards-in-isolation/

I’ve been embroidering all day, having the most lovely, peaceful and productive time.

Today’s Walk, Donations and Growing Lambs

It was lovely that on our walk, while keeping two metres apart, everyone smiled, said hello and wished each other to stay safe. Here is a view from TheGreat Flat Lode looking out over St Euny Church  and over to the sea on the North Coast of our beloved Cornwall.

Last week, St Petroc’s, the local charity for the homeless, put out a call on Radio Cornwall, for towels and soaps. We put together a couple of bags but could find no way to get them to Truro. Today a young woman who works with the charity came by and picked things up. Being homeless in today’s circumstances must be just about impossible but St Petroc’s are doing a wonderful job.
A donation came my way today too, of some very lovely pieces of glass. These belonged to our Dear Neighbour Bill Mitchell and S has just given them to me and I thank them both. I think these pieces will make a beautiful Tree of Life.

The lambs in the back field are growing. We love watching them bounce about and here share a joyful few moments with you.
