and the sun shines, you really should go to the top. We had a glorious dry sunny day on Sunday.
This stone is known as the Buckstone and is one of the local stones with myths and legends that come with it. One story which is true, is it used to rock but never roll over. A group of drunken Victorian lads put it to the test and undid that particular myth. It was put back in place with concrete and no longer rocks.
After such a wet winter the moss is almost dayglo green in the sunshine.
One of the myths suggest this is where virgins were sacrificed by our neolithic ancestors and their blood caught in the bowl of this stone near the Buckstone.
So much of it looks like a set from the Lord of the Rings films. Though this might not be such a stretch as J R R Tolkien was known to have visited the Forest of Dean.
Frank is still with us (sorry about my shadow). He still loves going out.
The 2nd instalment of the Quiltmania Di Ford mystery quilt has arrived and it involves 48 fussy cut circles to be appliquéd. Eight each of six different fabrics. That should keep me out of trouble for a while. I prepared these with starch over three layers of freezer paper. Luckily they are not like tiny berries but one and an eighth inch diameter.
