I started my morning with a walk down to the Farmers Market to buy mushrooms for breakfast, I was there so early, they were still setting up. But sunny early mornings are my favourite time and too soon it will be dark and dingy. I love the feeling of being the only person awake, so Maybe and I headed back home to cook our mushrooms and check on the mordanting fibres.

After lunch of vegetarian scotch eggs bought from the Farmers Market I headed out with fellow artist and friend, helping him to chose locations to film in. He's making another K-Film and needed countryside for the shots.
So a very creative day today, which after 6 weeks of having children home from school, was much needed!
