Friday’s Letters


Incy wincy spider…..

Hello! Hope everyone has had a good week and looking forward to a rest over the weekend. Even when we are locked down it’s important to have delineation between days and something different to do. If you are stuck for ideas I have a nice Saturday Art Challenge tomorrow making paint prints of moth patterns.

Following this week’s creative writing class on ‘My Friend the Spider’ I received some lovely messages from my good friend Anna who is an amazing artist and crafter. You can check out her creations here and on instagram @louismakes .

Anna sent me this fabulous poem which made me smile:

I also received these pictures of a little spider adorning some craft work and her gorgeous rescue Lurcher Louis!

In other news Rich emailed me this stunning picture of the sky line over York earlier in the week. There have been some fantastic sunsets recently.

In my allotment I have dark velvet poppies blooming and the English lavender and Sweet Peas in my yard are starting to flower. Let’s hope for another burst of warmer weather. In the mean time stay safe and I hope you enjoy tomorrow’s art challenge.

Take care!
Best wishes,
