a wishing star for the New Year
a found object you might say - retrieved from a bag of bits. It's half
finished so that's a gentle project for the coming days.

The weeks have whizzed by since my last post.
After a busy summer we took ourselves of to Kalamiki again as we so enjoyed our first visit in June. We had to change our travelling plans in Greece. No hire car - the necessary driving licence was left at home. Not deterred we made our way south first by the fabulous Athens surburban railway, followed by a coach trip and finally a taxi to our destination.
In fact it turned out to be a good thing and a totally relaxing time. No long car journeys involved, just relaxing on the beach, the local bus Petalidi for shopping (which included buying a huge string of garlic now hanging in the kitchen).
There were offers of lifts to Kalamata and even
Athens airport through the kindness of friends.
Kalamiti has four traditional taverns serving delicious food. No menus here you just have to enquire what is cooking.
So back home and the last of the summer workshops.
The weather was warm enough for a couple of indigo vats to top up my stock before winter and have a grand tidy up.
Parcels of indigo sent here and there. The Canford Needlework Festival was brilliant. Now it's time to put my studio to bed before heading east. Yes, it's that time of year again. The days are getting shorter and winter is setting in. The gorgeous autumn leaves are falling like rain. Three weeks under the blue skies of Rajasthan seems like a good idea.
There are more pix of Greece on my Instagram
page. I will add pictures of my Indian travels instead of blogging.
The Horticultural Show was a delight. Mad vegetables, who knew they could grow so big?
Beautiful flower displays and the air was full of perfume, which made a nice change from the piggies!
