Guess where I've been?

 To the seaside on holiday - back to Southwold in Suffolk.
 And there was sunshine - well for 2 days anyway. We were very brave and went for a paddle - it was rather warm.
 So here's a photo of the sun reflecting on the sea. It was really good.
 Here's a view from the pier to our flat - just to the left of the lighthouse.
I may have had a glass of rose in my hand at this time LOL
Some cheeky seagulls.
I saw some great art too.
Some interesting mixed media art in the Buckingham Gallery.
And some very funny characters by Samantha Bryan. They make me smile soooo much.
So much fun.
I also managed to get out last night to the Leamington Spa Embroiderers Group meeting. A really friendly bunch of ladies. The thing I'm finding so appealing about embroidery is the variety of work produced.

The speaker was Kathleen Danswan - she gave a great talk on the influence Venice has had on her work. Her work was very interesting - but seeing her sketchbooks and hearing her speak about how the city had influenced her was fantastic. She was very generous and encouraged us all to come and have a look and feel of her work.
And finally - a huge thank you to you all for keeping with me as I blog - I promise I'll try and blog more often. Thanks for all the lovely kind words and messages - it's great to know you're all out there.
Take care and I'll be back very soon.

Oh, you lucky, lucky girl. A trip to the sea sounds just perfect -- especially as the weather is changing and sea time will be put on hold until next year!
