We have just returned from a wonderfully magical week in Pembrokeshire, S.W.Wales.
I went with my daughter and her 3 children, Miss E, 8, Master R, 5, and Little Miss M, 3. The weather, for the first time EVER ( I have been going there for years!), was brilliant for the whole week! Only raining at night, and although sometimes windy, it was never so cold that we needed jumpers – that in itself was a minor miracle.
So we spent almost all of every day on the gorgeous beaches, building sand castles ….
just digging …..
and huge sand dragons
and boats, and quad bikes, and even a sand sofa ……..
and doing cartwheels for the sheer joy of it
with very little time for crochet, but it still always went with me of course
and then there was the swimming and the rock pools to explore………
Looking back at photos of my recent stay in Pembrokeshire I found this photo of a wonderfully vibrant lichen
found on rocks at Whitesands beach
where we went for a wonderful paddle one evening when the sun came out after a grey and rainy day.
Looking at the white lichen on the black rock inspired these doodles
and now I’m thinking of adding some gold and silver – hmm – Christmas cards maybe?
The black and white theme continues with my Cruella Deville Hat Wig selling this week and now speeding it’s way off to be worn for a Halloween Party – must knit another quickly – luckily it only takes a total of 4.5 hours to complete a Hat Wig – a couple of evenings and it’ll be done.
You can find a pattern in my Etsy Shop if you too would like to be Cruella.
