This morning there was no electricity, it was supposed to be off for one hour this afternoon. So I sat and ate my breakfast in the gloom and looked at the things on the wall in front of me. How interesting and enjoyable just to have the time to look in total peace at things I see every day.
A sunny warm weekend. Knowing that the weather was going to change I set to to string the onion harvest. Using one of the trees to suspend the strings the onions were worked in together. I left them hanging in the tree for the rest of the day. Saturday evening they were all brought in - 10 strings in all. Another good harvest.
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.
