The Owl and The Pussy Cat

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea In a beautiful 'red and white'(!) boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar, 'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are, You are, You are!What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Open Studion and a bit more wool

For the next two weeks my books will be on display in my friends studio as part of Devon Open Studios. There are 4 of us sharing the space, me, a potter and two painters. I feel very honoured as the potter and one of the painters are well established artists with a following of people who love their work, and the other painter (my friend) is also fast becoming a very popular artist too...and then there's little me with my books!
The first image is a big one, I think if you click on it you can see the paintings a bit better, tho the image itself is a bit blurry! To see some decent images of their work go to

 and, although I've been very good and resisted the spinning wheel while I've been sorting signposts,duty rotas, pricing and stuff, I did succumb to dunking some wool and cloth in some elderberry juice that's been in the freezer since last year.

yummy colours (bit on right is an undyed bit)
 and.... I also dug out some old spun-but-not-washed wool from yonks ago and washed it. There's a yellow batch in there that I dyed with onion skins..

 And then the cat came to help me roll it into cats do...

Ahem...thanks mr pook..
