I'VE STILL GOT THE BLUES FOR YOU....
Hello everyone, hope you had a great Easter weekend - the weather was quite unbelievable!
I haven't been in the JanCave much but pottered for half an hour here and there:
I thought I'd use all those strips I cut out a couple of weeks ago and do some patchwork - all cool blues together, it looks quite nautical!
I've made about 12 blocks of four strips and am unsure what they're going to be used for, a quilt perhaps or some cushion covers? Inspiration has yet to strike!
I've been doing a fair bit of gardening - it's not looking too bad considering the garden is less than 10 months old:
Quite a bit of colour, the perennial wallflowers in the background are a magnet for bees and other pollinators - I don't have any F1 hybrid plants if I can help it, as they're sterile and our bees need all the help they can get!
The tides have been exceptionally high this week, the maximum being 9.4 metres and they've been evening tides too so the harbour and beaches have been really busy.
Not that you can see the crowds in this pic! Unfortunately, the RNLI have been out about 9 times in three days to people getting cut off on the outer beaches and sand banks. The tide comes in so quickly and visitors are unaware, even though there's loads of signs warning about the dangers. The evenings have been just gorgeous though and we enjoyed strolling around.
We took Rhys out for breakfast on Sat morning (an early birthday celebration) and we went to the Ginhaus. I had cockles and laverbread (a Welsh delicacy made from seaweed, it looks like a cowpat but is delicious!!). This was by our table and made us laugh:
Jam made FOR the Ginhaus and not featuring gin in it (we think) but you never know!!
Have a great crafty week! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
