Have a nice weekend!

Sam and I went off to Penzance today to do a bit of shopping, and on the way stopped here at the old Engine House at Trink. I love this old ruin and have loads of pictures of it but still had to take some more!

Its been a lovely day here today, but with a bit of a nip in the air I think.

On our way back from Penzance we grabbed a certain fast food takeout and went and sat by the sea here at Longrock!

We had a nice walk along the Beach, before heading home.

Hope you are all having a nice weekend x x x x

lovely day

It was a lovely day here in St. Ives today, they said we were to have rain!!!

Not sure whether i showed you this brooch, but anyway this is a rather colourful one. Each of my brooches are embroidered with differant colored threads and fibres and then beads added, all by hand. I have alot of gift boxes that i found amongst my crafty stuff, but are a bit small for some of the brooches. What i really want to do is pin the brooches on to card labels printed with my name , you know , handmade by noelle or something, i suppose i shall have to make them myself but not sure where to start, so any ideas greatly appreciated .

Also i have been doing some of my fabric pictures one of which is for my niece's baby who arrived last week, but i shall show you that when i have given it to him!!

It was nice to get back into some sort of routine this week, although i was enjoying the lazy mornings of the summer holiday. Now i'm looking forward to the Autumn, my favourite time of year.

bye for now x x

Well, its been nearly a month since my last post! How the time flies. Can't believe Sam is back to school Monday! I have made up some mosaics as you can see from photos from the summer, we mainly stayed home for the holidays, with lots of trips out and not always with my camera!! oops.
Have found time to make more brooches.

Will be back on track come Monday, will be glad to get back into a routine.
Nice to see September, one of my favourite months. Husbands Birthday yesterday and Daughters birthday today, we've been out for a lovely meal!!
Judging by all your blogs ,you've all had a good summer, great, see you Monday! x x x x
