Hello - I'm back...

And I've got a tan LOL.  Have a look at the photo below and see if you can guess where we've been for the week. Well - it's St Ives.  We had a great time - fantastic weather too - hence the tan (well perhaps not so much of a tan than a shade more off white than normal). So the next few weeks I'm afraid you're going to be bored rigid with photos and what we got up to. We started the week with a walk about the history of St Ives and later in the week a walk and talk about the art of St Ives. They were really good. As you can imagine lots of art in St Ives a large number of very well known artists such as Patrick Heron, Ben Nicholson,Alfred Wallis and of course Barbara Hepworth.  We went to the Barbara Hepworth Museum and I took a few photos. I hope you like them. See you all soon.


Hello all, Hope you're well. I'm enjoying the sunshine - I hope you are too.  So here's a photo I took on an early evening walk earlier this week. See the sunshine reflecting on the lake.
And I am doing some sewing too. I'm making slow progress - but I'm really enjoying it. I'm rediscovering old stitches I haven't used for ages. I'll be back soon.

World Book Night

Well - Saturday was World Book Night. I was lucky enough to be selected to give away 48 copies of 'Cloud Atlas' by David Mitchell. The books were specially printed - as you can see below. I had a very nice evening sat in the pub - with great people - giving out books and having a drink. It really couldn't have been much better I'm pleased to say I've managed to give all of my books away.  If you weren't lucky enough to pick up a book on the night -keep your eyes open as the idea is that they're circulated once people have read them.
Now I'd hate to think you thought I spent all my time in the pub - handing out books. So below is a combination of fabrics I've put together to use as the basis for an exercise using different stitches. As you can see I've used the fabrics I dyed the other week. And the threads too. So keep watching and I'm sure you'll see how I get on. Hope to hear from you soon.
