Thanks for The Manx

This has been one of the most beautiful Autumn weeks that I can remember. The low lying mist and turning leaves have been such a stunning reminder of the glory of nature. These trees are in public parkland across from my house. It's Common Land so I have every right to graze my flock of sheep upon it...

...if I only had one. For now I don't - too impractical in The West Midlands...
...they'd only be trouble...
...we'll have to make do with the guinea pigs.

Tonight a little workshop on folded Manx log cabin blocks. You can see the sample here. This is all hand sewn but no stitches show. I have a mind to use a lovely jelly roll to make a quilt when we go to Devon. It's a great travelling project. I know that once more, instead of packing tomorrow I'll be cutting a quilt. God I always seem to do that, the day before going away, instead of organising our suitcases! Looks like I'll be up until midnight again!


  1. Breathtaking pictures. You are obviously in a nicer part of the West Midlands than I am :)

  2. Lovely place you are in. The quilt block colors are wonderful too.

  3. Beautiful pictures! I really want a goat. The neighbors would just love that. :)

  4. Gorgeous autumn pictures. I too would love some sheep (or maybe an alpaca or two), but have to settle with guinea pigs instead as well!

  5. Let's get a flock of sheep and share them! They can live with you half the time and me half the time. Bagsy the non lambing half...

  6. gorgeous photos..we are having a gorgeous Autumn this year..I would love sheep but not practical here in Liverpool either so have got guinea pigs too

  7. Stunning stunningly beautiful photographs. A reall inspiration for a lovely 'piece of something' I'm sure

  8. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a excellent job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!

  11. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to
    see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  24. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know
    so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but
    other than that, this is magnificent blog. A great read.

  25. After I originally left a comment I appear to have
    clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the exact
    same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
