Really excited to be selling my cushions through a lovely new website called Magpie Blue.  They’ve got heaps of lovely things so head over there and take a look…

We’ve been having the most tremendous storms here recently.  There’s something about living so close to the sea that makes it so exciting.  Last week, on the evening of a very high tide, the harbour started overflowing.  Not very much, they’ve done a lot recently to stop West Bay flooding like it used to – as a child I remember it flooding all the time.  But enough to be exciting.  It came up and over the harbour wall and the bigger waves came up and out of the slipway and onto the road.  Some of the boats literally looked they were going to bob right up and out of the harbour and the kiosk on the prom was getting swamped…

…and then this happened the next morning….the sun came out!

…I’ve just finished a marathon sewing session making cushions for a shop in Oxfordshire.  I had such fun putting together all the lovely patterns and colours and fabrics and they look soooooo scrummy all stacked up in a big comfylicious pile….

Well, where to start!? From finishing work on friday to going to bed on sunday, it has been the most beautiful photogenic weekend EVER. The weather was just incredible and we found time for paddling, walking, car-booting, gardening, buntinging, eating, sewing, playing and basking…

The highlight for me was the collection of treasure waiting to be discovered at the car-boot sale.  We found a whole box of old rolls of pianola music, all decorated in lovely graphics and type.  My eyes popped out at the 1890s sewing machine still with its instuctions!  Although the manual was a little worse for wear – never use sellotape on paper, ask my sister;  it’s a paper conservator’s nightmare.  Also uncovered was a lovely old ink pad tin, with ink, a ludo box full of marbles, a roaring, walking, gnashing, flashing dinosaur and a very funky golf cocktail set… 

After a very (very) stormy blowy blustery few weeks, all is calm again….

It’s finally starting to feel like summer down here.  My outdoor plants really struggle with all the salt in the air, but these two are doing really well and I love their colours….



There’s the most beautiful boat parked up outside our sitting room.  It has lots of lovely fluttering flags and a perfect gorgeous reflection.  I think Stanley wants to stow away…

And finally for today – my reading chair.  Shame I haven’t got time today to sit in it and read.  I can’t wait for the summer holidays – it’s calling me!
