Taking time…

We have had some beautiful warm days this week, with the special colours of late summer emerging and maturing. Driving across the Dorset heathland near where I live I took time to stop and walk for a few minutes to enjoy the combinations of yellow gorse and purple heather under a blue sky. I walked along the chalky track with no one else to be seen, bird song and the breeze in the grass were the only sounds.

Back home it was time to play with some scraps of fabric in similar colours…. Collaged and stitched into an imaginary heathland but one which reminds me of my walk in the sun the other day.
