My day looked like this.

Today was a day for noticing a change in the seasons.
A walk in the woods with my young man, basket filled with chanterelle mushrooms and plans for dinner. The fields around the village are turning gold and yellow, the hum of the Combine Harvesters working all night long. Blackberries are ripening and I can imagine pots of jam and apple crumble. Cosy thoughts.

The Pilgrimage Film festival that I attended is raising money (probably to pay for the extra transport after Bus Number One broke down on the first day. ) So they have added this page to their website. And look - my hat is one of the stars! It's a Felicity hat made with Blue Faced Leicester handspun and dyed with silver birch bark from my back garden. If that isn't wonder enough, the picture of the snazzy young man on the bottom right hand side was taken by me. So much excitement for a Friday morning.

Home again and all's well.

It's very different from the Pilgrimage but I found a lot to welcome me home. Magnus had reclaimed the tartan blanket before I had a chance to unpack and the garden had saved up some of it's bounty to share. Back to the more peaceful rythms of life and some homemade bluberry and coconut muffins.

I returned full of good memories and inspiration. You can't ask for more than that!

I did have a wonderful time at the Festival - so wonderful that it'll take more than words to describe. I'm sticking to pictures this time and I'll post a variety of them over the next day or so.
