The embroidered “brick” is now winging its way to Derbyshire House. It will be interesting to see it alongside all the other bricks when the hanging is completed.
Our brick is mixed media – with fabric paints, embroidery and bead work. Part of the design will be used for the cover of this year’s programme.
Next weekend (27-29 January) is the RSPB big birdwatch. Apparently 500,000 people took part in last year’s birdwatch.
Click on the link to open a new window to find out more. You can download a pack as the response this year has been so overwhelming that the paper packs have gone. The pdf packs are free to download but you do have to register on the website. You can elect not to have any kind of mailing sent to you and it doesn’t cost anything. The website also has many ideas for enticing birds into your garden from bird cafes to setting up nest boxes. Happy bird watching – think of me next weekend in the kitchen with my mug of coffee counting the birds and keeping my fingers crossed that the wren and the gold crest who’ve been frequenting the feeder turn up rather than the peregrine falcon!
