Bit of beach sewing.

Sometimes I get the urge to sew.
Usually something that I have been thinking about festers away in my mind.
Until about 5pm,
when I absolutely must go up my ladder into the attic 
and sew.

I thought this heavy turquoise combined with painters drop canvas.
Would make an ideal beach bag.

I looks okay on the green lawn.
I like to sew when I am stressed.
And yup, we were stressed before we hit the beach.

I forgot to take a shot of it by the beach.
You will just have to settle for my bling roxy thongs and my wetsuited legs.
Standing on the half dead grass of our campsite.
The bag was very handy. 
And, even better, fully washable!

Now. whilst at the beach, I had time to browse some eye candy.
Keep it clean ladies, 
it was of the book nature!

  I won this lovely book from Posie Patchwork.

Plenty of pretties to ponder.

Some black boards to obsess over.

Pretty throws to admire.

And a riot of colour to feast upon.

Thank you Posie, it was a briliant distraction.

  12. I love interior shots featuring creative ideas for blackboards within the home but I always wonder how much chalk dust will end up on the floor? Even with supposed dustless chalk, there will be some ... believe me, I'm a teacher :-)
