Tag Archives: Seaton
These are the targets I have set myself for 2016, inspired by Cathy.
16 WALKS (of more than an hour)
6 done, ten to go.
Three this month – that feels better.
- In Seaton, Devon I walked from the caravan site where I was staying with a friend, taking in the hide in the Nature Reserve and then into town and up the hill to the Labyrinth,
walking the labyrinth to the centre and out again and then walking the geological time line…..back around the Nature Reserve taking in the lake and back to the caravan for a cuppa, a crochet and a relaxing half hour of jigsaw.
The view from the caravan picture window – what a view!
A walk with my daughter and 5 of my grandchildren in one of our favourite places
3. Golden Cap
Gosh, looking again at the photos of these walks I feel so blessed to be living in such a beautiful county.
15 HANDMADE GREETINGS CARDS
9 done, 6 to go
I went to a friend’s Maypole Dancing Birthday Party – Fun!
Card for Sophie made on Festisite
14 NEW ITEMS IN MY ETSY SHOP
3 done, 11 to go
No progress made on this one in May
8 done, 5 to go.
Only 1 in May
12 GARDEN POSTS
5 done, 7 to go.
I’m keeping up with the EOMV posts. I’m enjoying recording how one border develops through the seasons.
11 HAND MADE TOTE BAGS
BUT…. I am inspired by some African fabric I found on my recent visit to London.
10 TYPES OF HANDMADE BEADS
9 PIECES OF TEXTILE ART (started)
2 started, 7 to go
8 MORNINGS of SORTING and STORING
1 done, 7 to go.
I think this is going to be my toughest challenge, I watch myself doing anything to avoid it. Prevaricate, prevaricate, prevaricate! Help!
7 PAINTINGS (or other pieces of art)
6 BUS RIDES (using my bus pass)
2 done, 4 to go
1 in May: my sister and I hopped on the bus home from the Chelsea Flower Show. She was all for taking a taxi but I persuaded her to go on the bus so that I could notch up another ride for this challenge. We were so glad we did, there was a marvellous festival feel on the bus with many from the show travelling with us.
So many of the shop windows and restaurants we passed had Chelsea themed displays which we could see from our elevated position on the bus. It rounded off a fabulous day perfectly – hurray for the 16 for 16 challenge! So many positive benefits.
5 NEW TYPES OF EXERCISE TRIED
4 done, 1 to go
So far I have tried Pilates, Belly Dancing, a Dance Class, a Zumba-like class.
4 NEW PATTERNS for my ETSY SHOP
2 WAYS TO HELP REFUGEES
For now I am going to have to stick to crocheting ‘Squares for Blankets‘, but I am still on the look out for a suitable trip to make.
1 NOVEL READ
Still 2 false starts.
0 BEADS BOUGHT
Despite being very tempted by some African Beads in the Petticoat Lane area in London. If I was not doing this challenge, I would definitely have bought some – but I have a huge stash from my jewellery making days – I must NOT buy more!
Thank you Cathy for this inspiration. I have set aside today to move forward on some of these to get them out of ZERO status.
Another sort of path
I walked the Seaton Labyrinth in Devon with a couple of friends last year. It sits atop a hill overlooking the sea – glorious views on a sunny day.
