I want to live in the lighthouse!

Everytime I go here, and thats usually a weekly trip cos its not far, I sit and wonder how it would be to live there! I think I might like it , if only for the peace and quiet, theres room for the ponies too!! Just me, the animals, the computer and my sewing, heaven!!!!







If you look closely at the above picture you can see the seals on the beach!






I've been busy with the Mermaid quilt,but also did this one cos I like to have several projects on the go at the same time!






Cat on the Roof.


I have been having trouble again commenting on some of your blogs, I am trying to figure it out so hopefully I can visit AND comment, its really quite annoying!

TTFN xx

Work in progress

Here's my Mermaid being made into a hanging.

Her hair colour has changed!



I've painted her face, that was a scary moment as it was already stitched in place when I decided I would paint it, shes missing some eyelashes and pink cheeks but they will be added later.

When I learnt to Applique I was taught to do invisible stitching, which I did for years, but now I don't like to! I like my stitches to show, it adds a bit of decorative something,I think , AND I quite often use different colours, so there!!!!!!!Hahaha!

I am going to have lots of fun with this quilt as its going to be full of little fishes, shells and anything else I can think of!!!

Hope you're all doing something creative, see you soon xx

Tuesday.

A drive out today with a picnic lunch.



Just a short car journey over to Gwithian and Hells Mouth.


If my photos look a bit wonky, it was very windy!

Cleared a few cobwebs though.






Glad I'm living here right now.

On my desk tonight....

A new Mermaid, only this one is going to be recreated in fabric and made into a hanging!

I'll keep you posted on that.



We went for a drive out this afternoon, out towards Lands End, I really fancied a cliff walk to clear my head, no sooner had we got through St. Just and the heavens opened and it lashed down, in fact , it was so hard at times it was difficult to drive!

We drove to Porthcurno up towards the Minnack, but still it rained. There was a brief interlude , so I quickly ran to the edge just to get a picture of the lovely beaches there. I'll go back when its nice and get some more pics for you!

Will keep you updated on the Mermaid hanging.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and your weather was a bit better than ours!

My Mermaid

She has glittery hair!!
After reading Jessie's blog,which I love to visit ,I thought I might start an Art Journal. Now I haven't done much drawing or painting for a long time and I really enjoyed it! I need to get a better sized book cos this one is a bit big , but I was just having a play around. I do love mermaids and they'll probably feature alot in my new sketchbook, oh, and houses!! I'll let you know how it goes. Also, I'm taking part in a Seaside Swap hosted by Julie over at KC's Court, my swap partner is Sue from @home, please go check out her blog if you don't already. I'm really excited about this as its my first swap, will let you know how that goes too!!!

Have a good week everyone xx
