More art, butterfly and visible mending.

1. Nick and I go to look at the Henry Moore exhibition up at The Amelia Scott (aka the library), and our town's fine collection of portraits by Joshua Reynolds and Gainsborough. Then we have a huge lunch with a glass of wine.

2. Bettany finds a butterfly with a dud wing. She names him Bob Cratchit and we bring him into the butterfly cage to live out his life free from concerns about predatory sparrows.

3. An article about how visible mending shows pride in a garment's story gives me the confidence to darn a much-loved dress with contrasting thread. I could have been braver and embroidered a leaf, but the tear was large and the mend needs to stand up to the washing machine.
