May Moments…

rhododendronspiderAloha!  Well it’s been quite a month for me, and if you’re thinking that not a lot of either crafting or blogging has gone on, then you’d be right!  Many things have taken me away from the sewing room and the computer this month…

…camping in the Black Mountains during our ‘heatwave’ week…blackmountaincamping

…walking up my beloved Mynydd Llangors, my most ambitious walk since I became ill with ME…mynyddllangorsview

…acres of bluebells!  My very favourite wildflowers, mmm, INHALE DEEPLY…bluebellfest

…a fabulous exhibition of quilts, textiles, crafts and paintings at the Minerva Centre, including this beauty by Angela Morris, whom I was lucky enough to meet on our visit…angelamorrisquilt

…a slap-up lunch for my BIRTHDAY at the Great Oak Café, when it was (just about) sunny enough to sit outside in the courtyard…greatoakcourtyard…sadly, leaving my job of 3½ years; saying farewell to the loveliest bunch of colleagues ever, and being overwhelmed with flowers, cards, gifts, and hugs (sniff!)…

…and stunning rhododendron flowers on the shrub opposite my flat, casting a magical purple glow across the walkway and into my sewing room window…walkwayrhods

Yes, that was MAY! So here we go with June, still working away at that bag lining tutorial and all sorts of other projects tumbling around, as always…

Here’s to a sunny solstice month xxx
