Brown Paper Bag Embroidery
While storms rage , rivers burst their banks , homes flood and mountainous waves crash around our beautiful Cornish coast.....I cant stand hearing about it any more..and creep away into my cave to sleep .... and read my favourite old embroidery books ....and stitch......and look at all your lovely gardening and crafting and embroidery blogs .
Leeks , onions , kale , parsely , sleeping rhubarb....thats about it up in the veg garden .
We noticed the first snowdrops as we drove through Nantithet last weekend .
I,m still worn out from flu...so not been dancing .
So yes , just trying to keep warm ...stitching in my fingerless gloves : )
Look at that green thread ... that has to be my favourite colour .
Here is not a very good picture of the stormy seas at Poldhu Cove , Mullion.
The reason it is not a very good picture , is because I am actually taking it from a safe distance ,through the window of our car.....cosy , safe and warm ...with the car heater blowing nice and warm all around me : ) ......( and a hot Cornish pasty on my lap )
I am really enjoying this project , those bright ,n cheerful colours making me feel better .
I,m going fossil hunting in a couple of weeks time , Charmouth .....cant wait ! Waterproofs at the ready....I know ....keep away from those cliffs !
I,m taking this embroidery along to work on ,back at the cottage ,cosy in front of the fire , in the evenings . I,ll let you know if we find any dinosaurs when I get back .
Thanks for visiting my journal and for your lovely comments x
