Lighthouse and boats

This is my new piece, just finished, Lighthouse and Boats.



I have been trying to decide for a while now whether or not to frame them . Usually i attach rods to the back so that they can be hung that way, but i thought putting them in a frame would set them off better, so after much deliberation and advice from various people(thanks Jane) i have decided to frame them. Just a plain white frame, because they are fabric and quilted i think they need to be touched so no glass!


I think it looks good ,yes?

I'm in the library!!

I have some of my wallhangings in an exhibition at the local library! How exciting!
My friend and i decided last year we would be very brave and have our work on display. Anne paints acrylics on canvas ( which unfortunately i dont have any pics of at the minute).


I put five of my pieces up and i have sold three already!!!!

The exhibition is on until the end of March.
sorry about the 'not very good photos'!
Hope you all had a good weekend x x x

Boats




These are my new boats for my shop, they are filled with dried lentils so they could be used as paperweights, i plan on making alot more in lots of colours, they look rather jolly just sat on a shelf.






I have often thought i would like to keep a journal, but have never really got round to it. Well i've taken a step in the right direction and bought myself a beautiful journal from here. Not sure where to start really, its sitting on the table and i'm thinking about it!!!!







I hope you all had a lovely spring-like weekend x x x x x

Making the most of it!


Another beautiful spring day, and so i'm here at Porthgwidden Beach, and just look, not another soul. I sat for almost an hour, just me, on my own, it was lovely. I'm making the most of it before Easter arrives and the start of the tourist season.



Diane, i think they know you're coming and are giving one of your fave cafes a bit of a make over!






Heaven!



See what i won over at Julies in her giveaway, knitted pincushion,cross stitch kit and hoop!!

A Boat and some new houses....


I made this today, hmm think i might make some for my shop!


This house doesn't have a name, i have decided to leave some un-named so that who ever buys it can tell me what they want to call it and i will embroider it on before i send it. This one is a bit taller than the others and it is available to buy for £17.00 plus p+p from my Folksy shop.

This is the side and back with button flowers and a tree!






This is Snowdrop Cottage, inspiration taken from Heidi's house, hope you don't mind Heidi.





See the snowdrops along the bottom!!

And cheery flowers around the side. Both houses will be available to buy in my Folksy shop later today.
Have a great week everyone x x x














Godrevy


I so love Godrevy, i think its the lighthouse i like so much. Oh and the seals, yes i do love the seals. They spend much of the day basking on the beach in a little cove just round from the lighthouse. Nobody can get down to them which is a good thing, but you can stand right above them and watch them sleeping and moving around sometimes playing. They look like a load of dead slugs! I didn't count them today but last time i counted over 70!!




It was another spring like day today, as you can see from the photos so this is where i went, its one of my favourite places.






I love that lighthouse, i want to go there, sometimes when life gets too much i think i could live there, just me on my own, but in reality i don't think i could stand it for more than about a week, and then theres the small issue that i don't do boats very well!! They could always drop me off in the helicopter i suppose! Perhaps i will just continue to visit and admire it from afar!!!
