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.
looking forward to my next visit whenever that may be.. gorgeous carving, lovely lass.. beautiful!ReplyDelete

Happy as skylarks.
Can not wait to see your new place, and of course you and Sarah. I will phone in a few weeks when I get back from Sikim and the foothill of the Himalayas. Take care and much love.ReplyDelete
I've been meaning to call you for a while now.
I thought you were already in India. Silly me.
Give us a call and we'll hook up on your return.
