Yesterday’s creative moment 💫
@charjohnstonfloral joined me and It felt good to create something just for the act of doing so.
The blossom filled the room with the most amazing scent and I was a little reluctant to take it down today.
We used bracken, twisted willow stems, clematis vine, blackthorn and the most delicate pink plum blossom. A few pieces of wire and some chicken wire on a hazel base was all that was needed to hold it together. .
Classes and 1:1 dates are still available for this year so if you would like to get your hands on the blooms drop us a line info@birdstudio.co.uk

  • Hydrangea and abstract shapes, a new painting in progress from this week. I have lots of postcards propped up on shelves and in cupboards around the cottage. They are images of artists in their studios and paintings that I admire by artists like Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, William Scott, Evelyn Dunbar to name a few. I look at them such a lot that the shapes, colours and motifs must find their way into my work. Before starting to paint I often spend ten minutes flicking through one of the art books in the studio just to get me thinking in colour and to wake up my visual imagination. I thought I would share this part of my process with you as I have never mentioned it before.

  • Life is unpredictable,
It change with the seasons,
Even your coldest winter,
Happens for the best of reasons,
And though it feels eternal,
Like all you’ll ever do is freeze,
I promise spring is coming,
And with it, brand new leaves.

Erin Hanson’s poem is resonating with me today & @eva_nemeth ‘s beautiful photographs from Monday’s workshop in the studio are lifting my frozen spirits ✨✨✨

  • Pigs are known to be one of the most intelligent animals in the 🌎 but why?

Here’s a few facts:

Pigs constantly communicate with one another

The dream, much as humans do

Newborn piglets recognise their mothers sound and respond to their mothers call

Mother pigs often sing to their young while nursing 
Pigs do not “eat like pigs” or “pig out.” They prefer to eat slowly and savor their food.

Wild pigs play an important role in managing ecosystems and maintaining biodiversity. By rooting, and thus disturbing the soil, they create areas for new plant colonisation. They also spread fruit plants by dispersing their seeds.

Pigs have 15,000 taste buds! Humans have 9,000.

  • [ L'amore per i dettagli ]

Si sente dire spesso che i dettagli fanno la differenza, ma cosa vuol dire per me?
.
Il dettaglio , per me , è quello che non tutti notano a prima vista.
Alcune persone non gli danno importanza e che ci sia o meno questo non influisce sulla loro scelta.
.

Ci sono altre ragioni che spingono la loro scelta all'acquisto, magari perché è tanto di moda e devono averlo ad ogni costo e ci passano sopra se poi non è cosi rifinito come in fondo vorrebbero .
Stanno comprando qualcosa che li faccia sentire parte di un'élite...e va benissimo cosí, se li fa stare bene .

Poi ci sono le altre persone, quelle che sentono la borsa come un'estensione della propria casa e che per questo cercano un prodotto che sia accogliente e curato anche dentro....
.
È per questo che ho voluto dar voce a questo bisogno e prestare la stessa cura anche per l'interno delle borse , usando materiali ecologici di prima qualità, dandogli carattere con le stampe che richiamano il colore del tessuto esterno, dotandolo di varie tasche e scomparti per renderlo più funzionale e per tenere in ordine tutte quelle "cose" che abbiamo necessità e desiderio ti tenere con noi quando siamo fuori casa .
.
La borsa diventa il tuo posto personale quando sei lontana dai tuoi spazi e sapere che qualcuno l'ha pensata per te con l'attenzione e la cura che tu stessa ci metti per la tua casa, è il "dettaglio" più importante che tu possa trovare.💓

  • BEHIND THE SCENES // Our garden team are always hard at work behind the scenes making sure that the gardens are looking their best. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
With all the storms that February has thrown at us, the garden staff and volunteers have had a particularly challenging time. The ground is very wet and muddy and a 50 metre drainage system has been implemented, this has temporarily restricted some access but will hopefully prevent future path closure. ⁣
⁣
We’re hoping that March brings us some better weather! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The gardens are open every Wednesday and Sunday, 11am-4.30pm for our Spring Bulb Pageant #LinkInBio @doddingtonhall. Make sure to pull on your wellies and respect any boundaries that have been put in place to protect the gardens and paths.

  • Anyone for Saturday socks?? Not only is it #sockyarnsaturday (is that a thing? If not I feel like it could be!) but it's a leap day so we have extra yarn crafting time. Hooray!
🌿🌿🌿
The crux of this post is really to tell you that we've got a sock yarn update happening at 4pm today - head to the home page then and you'll see the new stuff.
🌿🌿
If you're interested in the back story to this: I mix all my recipes from a handful of original pigments, so when one or more of them unexpectedly change it can have a disastrous effect on any number of my 200+ recipes. This is what happened recently (it's not the first time in nine years, but it is rare), which means I've been working on tweaking maaaaaany recipes; and that means that there are dyelots of quite a lot of similar colours! I don't get why this isn't a problem for other people - maybe it's just because I've kept the same colours and tried to keep them consistent for nine years, where maybe other people change colours from season to season? I don't know - I always thought it was good to try and be consistent (within the realms of the variability of hand dyed yarn!). Anyway, you might see subtle changes in quite a lot of my colourways although I'm doing my best to match them again. 🌿
What has this got to do with this update? Well these are batches that I tested the new versions of my recipes on, that's all! 😄 ----

  • In my work, I take so much inspiration from nature. I especially like flowers. Went this evening to the Nashville Lawn and Garden Show and wanted to share the exhibit from the Orchid Society of Middle Tennessee. Beautiful! Hurry up Spring. I’m ready for you. 🌸💐🌺🌹
