Looking at many stitching blogs I realise that I am not the only one who likes variety when stitching. I always have so many different projects on the go and as soon as I finish one I start another despite still having many others to complete. My clam shell mini is slowly growing.
I have finished stitching the 2nd bird and have started another one. I love stitching on to the flour sack fabric.
I found a lovely applique project in one of my Simply Vintage mags. The pieces are all cut out ready to applique but I can't decide which fabric to put them on to. I bought the lighter coloured fabric last week and I already had the grey fabric in my stash. Now I am not sure about either of them.
The lighter one is actually a creamy yellowish colour which isn't showing up here.
I have finished reading a lovely biography which is the first of a few that Maya Angelou wrote about her very interesting life. I have tried to get back into the habit of reading every night and have enjoyed it immensely. The current book I am reading is a novel based on fact and I have nearly finished that one too.
So now I shall take you back to my travels.
On 21st June, 2015 we left Chippenham at 11.00am headed for the M4 and M5 to Cornwall. We stopped for a break after driving for 2 hours then continued our journey arriving in Cornwall at 2.50pm . We needed another break before arriving in Penzance on a very cold, wet and dreary day. We had booked a Bed and Breakfast place to stay in and they didn't have any parking so we had to park the car about a block away opposite the beach. More struggling with luggage!
It was a quaint little room. We had our own bathroom and it was very comfortable.
After checking in and having a small rest we headed on out in the rain
St Michael's Mount in the distance.
We walked to a lovely character filled Inn for dinner.
The next day we walked around Penzance to explore the town.
I loved this house just around the corner.
The next day we went to St Ives. I will show you some pics next time.
Thankyou for taking the time to visit my blog and sharing fond memories of my trip.
