Wassailing.......

i went wassailing last night with my girl friday and computer consultant Marcus Morris
wassailing involves anointing the roots of a cider apple tree with cider to encourage a good crop of apples next year and shouting loudly and generally making noise to wake the tree ready for spring. it's a pagan ritual although i felt more piddly and giggly than pagan after 2 pints of westons stowford press. good fun though!

Angie - how good to find you have a blog; now I can follow your work. I love your new book, bought a copy and have made a book bag and a book wrap for one of my grand-daughters. I will now add your blog to my blogsite and follow you with great interest. (I'm Ann - who came to one of your workshops, in Bloxham, last Spring. One day I will finish the tiny hanging with the poem I wrote for you there and send it to you.)

I have accidentally fallen across your Blog and I'm wearing one of your brooches (bought at the NEC last year) that is very spooky! Anyway now I get the chance to ask you what you use to back the brooch in - some kind of black plastic?
Your video is great I don't know how you've done that but it's super.
