Beautiful videos from Liziqi, she must be the most hardworking person on this earth. Everything is handmade and if you explore her videos you will see food prepared with great skill and artistry. It seems an idyllic life but lots of hard work, and one thing you will gather from this is the limited amount of materials that the Chinese (amended) had in past history to work with. Indigo dyeing is probably one of the most difficult things to do, the 'resist' method of translating a pattern laborious, you will see the process in the video before this, but the above video shows the material she has made.
Went shopping yesterday, mostly for the animals, stood our two metres distance over the bridge to the Co-op, and only a few were let in at a time to the supermarket. There were empty shelves and less green grocery, but still plenty to buy.
It was the curlew yesterday, the tale of the cuckoo will be the next. Each year I find the old blogs and reread that which I wrote several years ago.
