Cabin fever

Sunday, 19 June 2016

I've just finished reading the Sunday papers and I won't use this place to add to the referendum vitriol or the latest tragedy in the name of ... whatever it turns out to be. We all need a refuge in times like these and it may be no coincidence that I saw several features on huts. I'm a girl who dreams of owning a hut, if a treehouse is out of the question (it is). And what we laughingly call our courtyard manages only a log store. So here's my Writing Shed upstairs. It faces west, so the sun should be pouring through this window now - but it's a British summer.

Soon I'll be sharing with you the various decisions faced by my managing editor Isobel. I think the first is going to be typesetting designs - and we value your input. We still seem to be on schedule but this strange time of waiting is hard. On a positive note, my knitting is improving and work has started on the other unique book, too. Next week I'll make a start on the ink sketches until I have a dozen that I'm sufficiently pleased with.

Odd that the next time I write a new post we may be a small island all alone again.

Every good woman should have her own hut - even if it is just in our minds like mine is! We can also love the light of our soft grey days here in Britain, but let's hope the sensible majority will step up and speak out and keep us Europeans when we wake on Friday.
