Snow and ice

It's half term holiday week and a very busy week for my husband and I. He is doing umbrella decorating workshops in Hastings for the Preservation Sunday Parade; a New Orleans style jazz and umbrella procession through the old town to the town centre for an afternoon of music and dancing on Sunday19th Feb. He's also doing a kite making workshop in Rye. I am doing two willow dome planting workshops and a bug house workshop in Eastbourne. The freezing conditions aren't ideal for planting but the temperature is supposed to be rising quite a bit tomorrow. There is membrane on the ground and the snow on top of that will have insulated the earth. The workshops are in children's centres and a school and are free. I also have two pages of art to create for Moshi Monsters Magazine for Friday. I've been doing this in the evenings.

On Tuesday I went to see my Polish friend who gave me a reiki massage. (I pulled a muscle in my back last Saturday). She told me I would feel better in a couple of days. I didn't believe her. I wasn't able to get out of bed without strong painkillers and was taking them throughout the day. The day after the massage I was still in some pain but mentally I felt much more able to cope with it. Two days after the massage I got up without pain killers. She gave me another massage on Friday. I'm fine now. I'm very grateful to her.  She healed herself from serious illness in her twenties and also her daughter's twisted spine condition. A very strong-minded person she researched alternative therapies and natural treatments at a time when there was not a lot of information of this kind available in Poland.   

I hope you are all in good health, or are receiving the best care if you're not so well. Hello to new followers, how's the weather? Of course now I feel like I'm getting a cold....onwards and upwards....


  1. What lovely snowy photos. Thanks for the tip on oatmeal - I'll certainly give it a try! I got chicken pox a few years ago in my early 40's! I had that bad too - I literally had spots on spots! I remember the GP saying - "Oh, at least you won't get them on the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet!" I then showed her the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet! They too were covered! Hope you don't catch a cold!

  2. We have so much in common June lol! x

  3. Sounds like you've got a busy week. Thankfully the weather looks like improving. Lovely snowy photos. Hope your cold doesn't get worse. Answering your question, I do use a rotary cutter to cut all my fabric, although with the log cabin blocks after sewing each strip I trimmed the end with scissors and that worked ok!

  4. Wow, that's a busy week. You really did get quite a bit of snow.We got hardly any here and then it rained so it all disappeared very quickly.It's much milder here today so hopefully the snow won't last too much longer with you. Have a great week.

  5. How do you manage to get around with all that snow, Lorna? I haven't had an opportunity to take any snowy photos yet...maybe I'm tempting fate!


I love to hear from you!
