Introduced to Ron Padgett’s Poem “How to be Perfect” at Verve workshop with Dean Atta & Deanna Rodger. Thoroughly enjoyed it, much head-nodding. The whole workshop was inspiring & useful and fun. Good people.

Four arrived Friday/Saturday & are amongst a flock of Greylag geese. Not so rare twitchers visiting too. Man with massive telephoto lens kindly lent me his binoculars. Bit like lbb’s (little brown birds) you need to know what you’re looking at because very similar to several big brown geese. Visiting probably from Russia & expected to be back there in a fortnight or so. Although  a flock of about 40 regularly visit Norfolk, not been seen around here since 1987.

We’ll be at Fargo Village Winter Market, Far Gosford Street, Coventry, CV1 5ED. Amazing range of independent businesses you won’t find on high streets. just right for gifts you won’t find anywhere else. With our range of fibre and yarns, hand-dyed & one-off hand-mades from £2.50 to £150,  we’ll be a good fit. Hope we have room to do some demo spinning too. Follow the link, then come and find us between 11am and 6pm.
