Walk by Pontins

 This is the right sleeve and part of the body for the aran I’m knitting.
 Fairies in my Garden– a 7 stitchery quilt.
 Can anyone guess what  quilt this will be?
 It’s a wonderfully well written pattern. Still not enough clues?
Well have a look here.
 The border will be smaller versions of the rings. You can use 8ths for them and make 2 fronts or backs from each. Stephanie is so clever like that.
 Here is a finish at long last. I had to wait for the batting to arrive as I’ve been keeping supplies to a minimum. It is Angel in My Garden by Lynette Anderson. I’ve made it using Kaffe Fassett fabrics apart from the green and the broiderie anglais on the angel. It was so much fun to work with fabrics I have stroked and loved for years. It’s about time I can see them on the wall. 
How are you getting on with the challenge of using some of your much loved fabrics?
 I had a visitor looking in my window one morning- a magpie. I think he wanted to know who had been photographing him leading 3 seagulls a merry dance over some roadkill.
 Anyone else see a sheep’s head or should I lay off the pink tablets?

Lets go for a little walk in the sunshine by the lake near Pontins in Southport.

 A sculpture on the roundabout commemorating the first flight to New York.
 Have a look at this handsome mallard. I don’t think he’d fly that far.
 Not when he has this lake.
 Flag Iris
 Willow seed.
 We walked along the wooden path between the sand dunes. The beach is to the left of this pic.
 Pale blue dragonfly on a nettle leaf.
 Son holding tadpoles so I could photograph them.
 They were densely packed in the shallows of the lake.
 The wind is fierce off the sea in Winter.
 But today there wasn’t even a breeze enough for a dandylion.
 This horse galloped past riderless and onto the road. Beach patrol and the owner thankfully got him back from the duel carriageway unharmed. Huge relief!
One last look at the lake. These 2 seagulls reminded me of the hecklers in The Muppet Show.
