The plain circle gift tag left a circle shaped hole in a piece of watercolour paper. I remembered about viewfinders in art and had fun taking a few views of our flat through the circle. It is amazing how it makes things look better without all the visual clutter round about them-I could learn a thing or two from the circle! Above is my favourite circle picture-of some large poppy heads drying in the hallway. They are not from ones I have grown, but from the market last weekend.

Although I love teaching, it can be a very dispiriting job when things are not going well. At this time of the year, when we are settling new children-the majority of the nursery-things can seem very unmanageable. While most children settle well, there are always the more challenging cases, for whatever reason that may be. We try our best to deal with problems and needs as quickly as possible, but these first few weeks are the ones when nothing is quite sorted out, and as such, are the hardest of the year. So, thank goodness for the weekend, and two days of relatively stress free pottering! Below are a few things from today which made me happy. Friends of ours had a baby girl in July, and we are only just off to visit them today. I bought the present ages ago, and last night I felted a little baby to go on the front. I have been felting lots of things recently and will share them soon.
