Watery Start to the Year
You know I’m new to that dark art of crochet, well I was determined to get the hang of the African Violet design.
I took a Primrose seed packet as my inspiration. One thing led to another,
Until a huge 10ft x 7ft (3x2m) quilt was made.
Did that feel like the theme to the Muppet Show (about a minute in) to anyone else?
It needed an edging. I found an easy to follow one in this book.
These magpies have reminded me to share an inspiration Pinterest site I have started.
I am starting to collect beautiful things without having to dust them . GOOD! I don’ like housework.
What inspires you? Do you keep things which make you smile in a special place?
Sorry for the gap in blog posts. I have been recuperating in Portsmouth.
Daughter gave me nuts for her squirrel friends. She is drawing squirrels a lot at the moment.
We walked by the sea where I had a couple of Narnia moments.
I keep thinking how much fun it would be to play with lighthouse motifs this Summer.
I’m looking forward to golden sunny days again.
It has been any shade of wet grey you could wish for,
for what feels like months.
This strange critter was washed up after a storm. Anyone know what it is?
The skies in this part of England are constantly changing.
Looking towards the Isle of Wight.
Hopefully the weather will improve.
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that I’ve cut the blocks for “Atlantic Link” now I’m back home.
It’s been a “water water everywhere” kind of start to the year the wettest January since records began.
I will date this one when I’ve finished it.
More storms due at the weekend. (“Build Ark” added to To Do List.)
With Somerset under a lot of water and Cornwall cut off by rail for at least 6 weeks it’s the last thing England needs.
By pure coincidence my next 3 posts will share historical boats with you, inside and out.
