Beach Art and Stitched Post Cards

 We have just come back from our holiday in a friends caravan down at the lizard in Cornwall.
I have to say that luck was with us as it was probably the only full week this year that hasn't had rain. We even got in a few sunny beach days and i managed a possible tan line if you look close enough.
This fantastic bit of art was on the beach at Cadwith. A local artist had been there in the morning and I managed to get a few photos before the tide came in.
When I went back in the evening there was no trace of the work left so i feel very privileged to have been there to capture her work.
I also saw this mini exhibition at the seal sanctuary in Gweek.
The artist Jane Rose runs marine litter art workshops and makes a 10% donation to the marine conservation society with ever piece of art she sells. You can look at more of her work at .

I also finished, and posted my textile art post card when down there.
Remember my post a few weeks back.
I mentioned that I had joined a link up were a group of us all made post cards ( see stitchin fingers link )
this was my final card called summer storms.
I believe I am receiving my stitched post card from Australia so that's quite exciting.

I'll finish with this snap shot of the kids on the beach lets hope we get a few more beach days in before the winter arrives.

Rabbit in boots

I put in my completed business plan today for the 'Saltash Creative Hub' which is the Arts Craft and Environment centre I am hopefully going to be running as mentioned in my last post.
What a nightmare that was getting finished. Lots of crazy stats like how many biscuits you sell in a year and how much cake may be eaten ( it turns out there is good money in biscuits you know ).
Now I can relax for a while anyway.
We are having some building work done to the house in the next two weeks so I am escaping to my parents in Somerset for the build.
Looking forward to the brake, just hope the kids behave I think they will be ok but we will miss there dad who is staying back to help the builders.

I have also finished my experiments with the fabric crayons I bought last week. I have been making stock for a Christmas stall and possible stock for the Hub.

I have made a selection of pin badges and a few toys along with a couple of house play cushions.
I like my rabbit in yellow boots, think I will do a few more of these.
