OH...I....DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE....
Some sewing has been done as well, in amidst the randomness! I'd offered to make some tissue holders as part of the local Knit&Natter Group's fundraising, also some felt ornaments. I thought I'd make a couple as samples for the ladies to see what I was on about...
Finding some suitable fabrics wasn't a problem with my newly sorted stash :-D
I really must sort out those embroidery flosses next.....
The brass part of my week was closely followed by whiskey when we came 3rd out of 8 bands in a tough category in a national welsh band contest but there are no pics to share which is probably just as well!
But I can show you these - Monday was a gorgeous day here in Wales and Mr LLJ and I decided to have another road trip to Cardigan Bay. We went to Newquay, what a charming little town it is, gorgeous painted Georgian houses set in rows on a steep hillside leading down to a very picturesque harbour. Just like this:
You can see what a glorious day it was! Boat trips leave from here to go out and view the marvellous wildlife, cliffs of nesting seabirds:
Seals basking in the sunshine:
...and Bottlenose Dolphins (not the clearest of pics but they weren't close)
It was so exciting to see these wonderful creatures - Cardigan Bay is renowned for them, also Minke whales, basking sharks and leatherback turtles. who come to feed on these:
Obviously this photo was taken back on land but those pinky blobs in the sea are barrel jellyfish, just like the one I showed you a couple of weeks ago. There were hundreds of them floating around and getting washed up too.
Mr LLJ and I had a really wonderful day!
We are really enjoying rediscovering our beautiful part of the world :-)
Have a great week! xxx
