Just a little sketch..

My grandson whilst on the train from Falmouth to Truro the other day.. 
I was just captured by his far away look and all I had was a tiny note book 10cm by 6cm.. Not an easy task for someone who likes to work on big bits of paper.

Gylly bay.. Spring tide and an on shore wind..Just one hour between these photo's...

 Just 5 minutes from where I live in Falmouth is Gyllynvase Beach but not much of the 'beach' to be seen yesterday due to a spring tide
..and an onshore wind.. Crazy! 
 The wind actually blew me over completely whilst I was taking this photograph..
 When waves roll in literary roll in.
 Sea snow
 Then just an hour later and a little further along the path looking towards Gyllynvase beach.
 Looking towards the lighthouse at St Anthony Head.
 This one is a bit fuzzy due to the 'mist' as the waves crashed into the sea defenses but it captures the atmosphere of the evening.

'Looking forward' and connections.

It is a small world...
 The lady who purchased this brooch said in her email..
"I went on an embroidery course last week and a lady there was wearing one of your brooches so my friend and I looked you up". How lovely is that.  
The email cheered me up no end. Thank you Sue
'Looking forward' 
'Looking forward' has now traveled up to South Yorkshire.

Charity shop finds...

I just wanted to share the treasure I found in the local Cancer research shop..
I don't know when I'll find the time or more the inclination to knit again but.. 
8 balls of Rowan felted tweed just £2 per ball.. 
Perhaps my enthusiasm for knitting will return once I've got a little inspiration.

Must get on... The paints are calling me...

My guilty secret..

Beautiful tools
Handmade brushes..  
My collection is very small.
I have no idea how old they are or what they were originally used for.
 I've been collecting them for a long time. 
I get so excited when I do find one especially if it's a car-boot find.
I buy them. 
Then because they are so beautifully made by craftsmen. 
I don't use them.
Maybe one day..
