Cerise, purple, gold and scarlet

This is the view from our back bedroom of the sunrise over Bodmin Moor last Monday. The garden thinks spring is on the way, there are primroses in flower and the pond can only be described as Fifty Shades of Frog. The hill you can make out between the chimneys delights in the name of Brown Willy. Rough Tor (pronounced as one word to rhyme with doubter) is more to the left and obscured by trees. This link will take you to some of David's pics of the moor

So there is your "cerise, purple ad gold", the scarlet comes from Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year, a blog set up by Nicola to celebrate her milestone birthday this year, all the participants (and there are over 100 of us) have agreed to stitch on Scarlet Letter Samplers over the course of the year, and this is my New Start - by which I mean I've taken it out of the bag and put the fabric in a frame, lets not get ahead of ourselves here - Elizabeth Burrows. I'm really looking forward to stitching on this.

Christine I enjoyed the photos via the link. Bodmin is such a specal place. You can feel the souls of the ancients there. David has captured some great long exposures. I have been playing around with some filters and am enjoying the effects you can create.

Oh I love your choice of SL samplers. I joined up too but still have to pull my thread and fabric. I have had the pattern is my stash for years. Good reason to get it done this year.

What a beautiful sky! You are so lucky to live in Cornwall!
