In the tiny downstairs bathroom I have my little seaside collection. I have a growing number of little boats and would really like to get some old ones.
I have collected so may pebbles, sea washed glass etc but as yet have nowhere to put them. Maybe I will use one of my old print drawers and put a treasure from the seaside into each one.
Yesterday I picked three kinds of beans and also mange tout, all safely in the freezer now. I also made ten jars of beautiful dark purple plum jam.
It is raining today and the whole of the garden will be loving it. Everywhere is so dry. I shall work on my bags using some of the linen I've dyed. Pie, Tortue and Samuel will sleep for most of the day. They don't like the rain !
I live in a late 18th century farmhouse or longere
with my husband .
I taught Art in England for over 35 years and have always done my own work.
We moved to France over 12 years ago and and continue to work on the renovation of the house and making the garden. I make many things out of old textiles and also sell vintage sheets etc.
I have had over 6 exhibitions of my art work since living here and in the summer manage a small art gallery in a nearby village. I make home made cards and other ephemera.
