We spent a lazy Sunday afternoon at Oare Gunpowder Works, outside Faversham yesterday at an Artists in the Woods event yesterday. In the heat of the day, the woods were beautifully cool. There were lots of different artists along the paths, ranging from musicians, woodturning, metal sculpture, poets and installation art along the way too. DD3 had fun barkrubbing, constructing her own poetry from wooden blocks and making a garden fairy from a twig, supermarket carrier bag and wool!
On the way home, we diverted into a housing estate to see a wonderful metal sculpture at Kemsley Fields, with a fantastically detailed timeline of the local area from prehistory until recent times. Pics of those are on DH’s phone as the camera battery had died but anyone local should take a trip up to Lloyd Drive opposite the new Morrison’s depot – it’s worth it, I promise!
This is the block I made for the PP Friendship Block Swap. I’m very happy to report that this month’s recipient is to be me! I’ve chosen traditional blocks in bright colours on black , in any size and I’m looking forward to receiving my squishies. 🙂
I can’t find some of the pictures I want to share so here’s the last for now: This is my mum’s birthday present. It’s fused applique on a pieced background then machine-buttonhole quilted onto 2 layers of soft cream fleece for a cozy throw. It’s the big day today so I hope Royal Mail doesn’t let me down – happy birthday Mum!
