Another Sunny Day at the Beach, and Mail-yippee!!

March's Barter/Swap- BOOKS!

Another glorious day; although very cold there was hardly a breath of wind. On the News it said this is the most prolonged spell of good weather Ireland has had in two years- so don't laugh at me going on about it!

After School Assembly Mom collected me and we went to Rosses Point beach just so it didn't feel left out of the blog-world.
I made Mom jump this stream, she wasn't sure if she'd make it 'in' or 'over', but there's life in the old girl yet! (She'll hit me if she reads this!)
If you walk the second beach you have to tip the rocks at the end, but if you're the bro you have to crawl into the cave and tip the back wall...
Almost 11 o'clock in full sun and there was still frost on the sand.
Benbulben from Rosses Point this time! Its rather a landmark, as you'll have guessed.
Mussels for tea anyone ?
Now isn't this a quilt waiting to be made? Silk, perhaps, embellishment and lace?
And look what was waiting for me when I got home:
A parcel from UpTownDesign containing lavender, 2 skeins of beautiful red wool, and some lovely fabric as well as some extra goodies! The post took ages as I ordered it in January I think...before the credit card ban!
I'm delighted, and I can tell you now that you're lucky there was any posting done at all today because I'm itching to find a pattern for these fabrics and start sewing!!!
Anyhow, check out her yarns in particular as they are absolutely wonderful colours!

Beautiful pictures. And yes, that picture of the sand is great inspiration for a quilt.

I love the colors of the material you just received. Was it divine inspiration that you came across the pattern on the beach and then got material in the mail. Perhaps that is your idea!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I'm so pleased to hear about your good weather, as the weather forecast usually seems to have gloom and doom in prospect for Ireland.

Lovely photos and what treasure box of fabric.

I've never been to the beach in the winter - what a great idea! Such a blessing to have extended beautiful weather - a gift from God. And then to come home to such delightful fabric and yarn - it really doesn't get better than that. If it were summer you probably wouldn't stay inside long enough to use them. :>}
(so it's lucky it's winter, right??)
