lets go fly a kite.....

this is my latest piece, its rather jolly don't you think. I have another St.Ives piece on the go ,will be ready to show you in a couple of days. Well, i went out and did a bit in the garden today, i have lost all my geraniums to the weather. Its mild enough usually to keep them out all year here but forgot about them in the snow. I lost one of my lavender too. oh well ,good excuse to visit the garden center. I have got alot of seeds to be planted but haven't got around to that yet! Back to work tomorrow evening after 2 weeks off so less sewing time for me!! hope you enjoy looking at my 'kite' picture. x

gone to the beach....

Went to the beach today, its only 5 mins down the road! It was quite cold but nice and sunny, sam did some digging,sandcastle building and rock climbing! we watched the surfers,and took some photos. we like the beach, its nicer in the winter in some ways because its not full of holidaymakers and anyway i am not one for sitting in the sun, so we like the beach in the winter!

too dark!

really need a new camera no matter what i do i cant get good photos, too dark, colours all wrong. arhggggggg!!!

rubbish camera!!!!

well just look all differant colours, oh how annoying, here are some more pics of the tablemats which i thought would be better! duh! and a picture of the 'little house' which is rubbish colours thanks to my camera. it is actually rather bright and beautiful! well the snow came today quite thick and fast this morning which is very rare for st. ives, cornwall. i dont expect we will have much more though. had to ferry water butts up to the horse field cos the water trough had frozen up! harry was looking a bit bemused, he's never seen snow before!!!! well the best place to be today i think is home,nice and cosy, sewing!!! x

i'm back!

well here i am back again . i can't seem to get my camera to work properly anyway i had to post this pic of these cupcake tablemats i have just made for a friend who has just moved into a new house . i am making coasters to match too . have been really busy of late and am soon to start some decorating here at home. the weather has been miserable and the horses field is like a swamp! they say its going to get really cold this week with snow forcast.... i don't think it will get this far south ,it doesn't normally. anyway we can but hope! i love snow and so does sam, so fingers crossed. the pic is from a few years ago when it came and then was gone in the same day!!!
