Monday morning here again, another (and hopefully my last) of being off with Covid. Got the all clear with my (two) LFT this morning so fingers crossed back to work tomorrow.
I’m still full of cold, no taste or smell and chest a bit wheezy this morning but if I take it nice and slow all week there’s another weekend there waiting for me!
Thought I would show one of my Winter fine art composites from last year – this was made with many layers on PhotoShop. Yes, the rabbit is (was) a real rabbit that a photographed on a hill near me, funnily enough called Bunny Hill! The top header picture is actually part of Bunny Hill!
The Christmas craft fair at No3 went great – I sold my friend sold quite a lot of cards. I don’t know what portion of stock I have left until I return to work tomorrow. So a big shout out to Nicola Harper Textiles Artist! (link to come soon).
Welcome to The Weekend At the moment all is busy – I have a craft stall at work selling my cards and prints. On 28th November I have another craft stall, this time it is Christmas craft at No3 Heworth again.
Well since November has started it’s been cold, damp and miserable. I can’t wait until shops start putting up their decorations in the run up to the festive season. There is nothing better than being out on a miserable day to see the twinkling of fairy lights. Does anybody else like seeing that?
Also, 5th November will soon be upon us. For those of you not in the UK 5th November means Bonfire night with lots of fireworks and noise! I’m not a huge fan although I do love to see fireworks sparkling across the dark sky.
“Remember, remember the Fifth of November” or “Please to Remember” are variations of a rhyme that commemorates the day in 1605 when a group of Roman Catholics including Guy Fawkes, were caught in the act of trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
When news of the plot got out, Londoners were so relieved that the conspirators had been caught that they lit bonfires throughout the city as a celebration. Over the centuries thet celebrations have become more elaborate and now fabulous firework displays are a feature throughout England on the night of November 5th. A week or so prior to that, children make effigies of Guy Fawkes which they take door to door asking for ‘A penny for the Guy’.’ On Bonfire Night these Guys are traditionally burnt on top of a bonfire.
