I'm feeling very noble

I'm feeling very noble.  Day off yesterday and was in the mood to clear up all the tedious jobs.  I managed to :

  • mend my umbrella
  • mend mum's skirt
  • shorten dad's trousers
  • finish knitting and sewing up a large shapeless tunic in Sirdar Indie for mum (lovely colourway, but a yarn and pattern I would never chosen to knit. She started and couldn't finish)
  • finish proofreading my uncle's memoirs so the grandchildren have it as a memento - he progressed from Dorset farm boy, to property developer, to repairing snooker tables in Ghana
  • get somewhere near the bottom of the laundry basket
  • do a litter pick up the lane
I'm glad some of that's over.

Not much to photograph recently and it's a rainy old day today, so I dug up a photo from my files.  This blackberry leaf caught my eye back in the autumn.  I'm wondering about swatching some of the colours including the deep green of the ivy in the background.

Love the idea of developing a colorway from nature. Beautiful photo!

Just wanted to stop by to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I especially like the way you "see" details of colors in such ordinary things like a blackberry leaf.
It makes me want to do the same.
