In places the beach is entirely covered with shells (this one's from flicker as it's clearer than any of mine)
If you decide to visit, you might want to be mindful that it is a nature reserve ........... not only a nature reserve but THAT kind of nature reserve as well so, like us, visit out of season or during non-sunbathing weather! The beginnings of some shells on my "Rainbow" piece .........
I am really struggling with my eyes and this stitching so progress is going to be very slow but I hope to be able to show at least a little bit more each week. I have lots of ideas for other stuff I could do in the meantime but there are more pressing things too ............ some blinds for home. I want to do something like this ..................
There is only one copy in the county library system and it's out on loan until sometime next month. Then it could take up to a week to get to our branch library but I want to start NOW .............. if only I could tell them I only need a quick 5 minute look to get an idea of the block sizes and see how they are paper pieced!
On a more positive note, I knew what the postman would be holding when he knocked the door this morning ........... my prize from Fibrefrolics - aren't they just "my" colours! Some merino tops, silk fibres, ribbons, fabrics, Angelina ................ lots to play with!
Penny had also previously awarded me a "Sunshine Blogger" award which was exciting too.
