Thank you for all your kind and considerate comments on my last post. Jacob appreciated them. Moving into digs on Friday went well, but Jake has had a rocky few days as he gets used to a new environment and all the changes that go with it. I resisted the urge to drive down on Saturday evening and bring him back home for the weekend and he has coped well really with his anxiety. There have been many phone calls and messages! His course doesn't start for another week so this is a settling in time for him... not easy.
Meanwhile, I've distracted myself with various activities. I've been sewing... making body parts for my next piece of work for the Prism Coded: Decoded exhibition which has its second stage at the Knitting and Stitching Shows this autumn.
I've been knitting... finshing off some bunnies as presents for a new born and her big brother (who is only two)
I've been drawing... and enjoying working in a sketchbook for a new project.
No prizes for guessing what the new project might be!
And last of all, probably my favourite distraction of all, I've been baking.
A blackberry crumble cake, which although quite delicious would have benefited from a dollop of thick cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
You can find the recipe here. I just replaced the gooseberries with some blackberries. It would probably work with any tart fruit.
