Another beautiful day...

Its been a lovely day here in St. Ives again, sunshine and blue sky. Went on a long walk with my Dad and Jodie the dog, wore them both out i think!




This is another finished piece of a little girl flying her kite on the beach, with what seems to have become my signature seagull at the top there!!!

Fancy hat!!



Hoping you're all having a good week

Sunshine on a rainy day.........

Beachhuts.
This is a piece i have just finished, i've added one of my 'special' seagulls, they seem to pop up on most of my work, but then living in St. Ives they seem to pop up everywhere full stop!!!!
As my work mostly features sun, sea and sand i'm not too bothered that its raining again outside!!!!


Oh look , there's another one!


Boat and gulls.


Excuse the rather wonky angle of this picture, i just wanted to show you i painted my dresser. I forgot though to take a before picture hahaha! It was a very dark varnished pine and i didn't like it very much, anyway i love it now in cream with new knobs.
(See my little owl, Diane!)
Anyway, hope you are all well, i,m off to finish some more work, got two little houses to go to Austria next week!!! Oh and i've just been informed the cake tin,s empty!!!
TTFN

A New Year

Fresh Flowers

A new Hanging, 'The Crooked House'.




Theres still loads of these left , I don't really like chocolate but they do look pretty in all their colourful wrappers!



This driftwood Heart i bought in Mousehole on my Birthday and when my new bed arrives it shall hang on there but for now it hangs in the kitchen on the mirror.
Lots of changes in store for this year i think, we need to think about alternative arrangements for my Dad. I don't know if i told you last year he had a stroke and although he is still up and about he needs to have people around most of the time. He lives about ten miles from us and its just a bit too far to be able to pop in often enough , so we are thinking about moving him nearer or even moving him in with us. Its all a bit up in the air at the minute, lots to think about.
I've just started back sewing again, i do love to sew and have missed it over the holiday. As you may know i have a bit of a thing for houses and my Crooked House was an idea i had over Christmas and was dying to get on with it. I also want to do a bit more crochet, but it scares me slightly!!!! Will give it a go. Got lots of ideas for hangings and alot of houses involved! Will keep you posted! xxxxx
