holiday snaps

Hello! We have been away enjoying the landscape, sights, sounds, and colourful details of the beautiful Haut Var. A fortnight of bright light and warmth was just what was required. Here are some snapshots of our trip.

I’ll be back shortly with more news and photos, but just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your comments on my Woman’s Hour interview. I really enjoyed chatting with Jane Garvey, and also wanted to give a massive shout-out to Maylin Scott for nominating me, and for introducing me so very kindly and articulately. If you’ve not already done so, please do go and have a listen to the rest of the week’s “chain” of excellent women, among whom I’m proud to be included. Like Felix, I feel particularly grateful at the moment for the strength, support, friendship, creative inspiration, and general good sense of the online crafting community. Thankyou, all of you.
