We have been so lucky here in the Uk to have had such a wonderful Summer. In July and August we spent a little time in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall.
I never fail to be inspired by the quaint cottages, gardens and animals I meet on my travels there.
I carry my camera and sketchbook wherever I go to capture my ideas.
Honiton country fair
I love visiting village fetes too whilst travelling, the excitement, animals, homemade produce, bunting and joy on the faces as everyone enjoys this very British of days out.
Whilst in Devon we stayed near Honiton and visited the country fair . As you can see from the photographs the vintage tractors fired my imagination and I created a vintage tractor embroidery design on my return.
As the nights now draw in and our thoughts turn to cosy evenings by a crackling fire, candle lit rooms and hot drinks. I will be thinking back to the lovely days we had and using these images to feed my imagination as I create new paintings and embroideries through out the Autumn and winter.
