The Pixie Hunt Pic-Nic
Well, after writing out my list of favourite things, I realised it had been a loooong time since we had visited any 'proper' woods...so, we all piled in the car and drove to Herefordshire. It's a fair way, 2 hours drive, but Mr Nick and I love it so much there. We met in Hereford whilst at college there together, over one hundred years ago now. Mr Nick was studying blacksmithing and me, illustration.
Anyway! we ended up at Symmonds Yat, and unlike the wild and woody pixie hunt/pic nic I had been expecting, it was heaving with people. There were people whizzing around on bikes you could hardly move! Any pixies in the vicinity would have been scared away long ago. I think next time we'll go 'off the beaten track'.
In other news, I'm currently working on some patterns and ideas for 'Ottaline' dollies. I have big ideas for this girl...
