Michaelmas daisies yearn for sun.

Full time studio was NOT an option today. The sun made a rare and prolonged appearance today and by god  we need it, every last drop of it. This little island has endured way more than its jobs worth of gloom and gales this year. Time for the clouds to curtsey and depart to make way for the great golden globe and its warmest glow.

So sweet was the sunshine that I ambled a farmyard circuit and snapped the following shots.

Daisies and the church
Roadsides lined with crowds of swaying grasses.

And all the woolly ladies are having haircuts which means providing tea and jammy oat cakes to Archie, Duncan and Ina as they clip, roll and sweat in the barn.

New slimline look accessorised with the latest funky ear wear
Spot saltire sheep at the back.
The evening sun hovers over Morvern as I return
and the laundry comes in before a likely downpour.

More sun tomorrow please weather maestre.

Born: 13th March 1969 in Edinburgh Star sign: Pisces Where do I live? An beautiful island called Lismore Who with? I live with my gorgeous man - Yorick, and my beautiful boys Ruben (currently 14) and Tom (10) and we also have cat poppy, cat Bashy and cat Spyro. What do I do there? Water veggies in the polytunnel, loads of mopping up, picking up clothes, cooking and washing dishes. The rest of the time I'm in a blissfull state in my studio making things out of wool and designing the next must have (in my head!) and a lot of cycling to and fro My favourite Books: Right now...empowerment books like "The power of now" and "The Secret", but also John Fowles "The Magus" and "The kite runner" and I love the "Tao of Poo" My Favourite films: Babettes feast, Wings of desire and The colour of Pomegranites. My favourite music: Bach cello suites for designing, Dolly parton for making (especially her album Little Sparrow), Teddy Thompson and loads of other stuff! What did I do before moving to Lismore? * Went to school in Edinburgh (South Morningside primary then St. Mary's music school and then George Watson's) * Went to Brazil for a year, fell in love, learnt Portuguese and spun a lot of wool * Studied foundation in visual arts in Manchester poly and then went on to study BA Hons in textiles at Goldsmith's college * Made felt hats, sold them at Camden market and then eventualy Liberties and had Ruben in the midst of it all - moved to Pathhead * Tom came along and I stopped making hats. sung lots of Jazz, taught Brazilian and samba singing, recorded an album and started singing with La Boum * Tom went to school and I set up Mogwaii * Moved here in 2006 There you go!! xx Sarah (from left) Ruben, me and Tom (from left) Ruben, me and Tom

  1. A Saltire sheep! Love it.
    Does seem like summer is going to pass us by again. We can but hope, and appreciate those bright spells all the more.

  2. I´m sure you will have more sun…..To me the sun is always shining in Scotland.

    I really love your work. You are so creative, and I can see that you love wool as much as I do.
    If you like you can look at my blog.
