Another month seems to have disappeared in a whirl, leaving just a few stitches behind to prove it was there.
I went back to the grid formation for this month, which I like because it always feels like a more accurate representation of days: a few patches of time with no spaces between. I like the other layouts too, for different reasons.
Lots of flowering and new growth in the garden. Some days brought less happy news, but things seem to be looking a little brighter now.
Earlier in the month we found time to go and see the bluebells and wild garlic in the woods.
The front shows where you go, and the back shows how you got there. Two sides of the same story.
The stitch journal is becoming a book. I’ve stitched the first few completed pages into the spine of the cover. The music is Menuet from Bach’s Cello Suite no 1 in G major, expertly played by cellist Steven Isserlis.
Still a lot of the year still to go, and a few feet of linen waiting to unfold. June will be vertical stripes. Long days.
