Sarah and I have moved further out into the countryside.
I've settled into a new studio space.
We are nestled in an intimate hollow on top of a high spur with far more sunshine than the old home.
Sarah had a birthday the other week.
After a fine breakfast...
We drove down to Cornwall and spent the day with our good friend Valda.
Walking on the cliff tops.
We stopped by our favourite hotel for a great fish 'n' chip supper.
I thought I'd carve her a 'welcome to your new home and happy birthday' spoon.
Most of the spoons I have carved recently start off looking like this.
So I thought I'd stick with what I know to start with.
Then perhaps add a little something different later.
It went down well.
I think it's now safe and sound in Sarah's treasure chest.
I carved it from a crooked bower of a walnut tree.
I used the other side of the split log for a serving spoon.
I'm looking forward to capturing some great sunsets up here.
All the best.
