So WHOO HOO way to go Ben!!!!!!
So how are you enjoying the summer, I think we may have an influx of visitors next year. Well can but hope.
The front cover from My Heart is true book Blackbird Designs ,It is the project book designs but not made up as theirs. This is the inside.
A few people asked in my last post where the design Know your own Happiness came from well sorry folks but I am not sure if it is oop it is The Valentine Book of The Sampler Girl. It may be available still but if not and you leave me a comment maybe I will stitch one for you. So that is Shirlee, Angela, Sally and Margaret. Do not hold your breath as it will be as and when I feel like it.Leave a comment if you would like that.(Not for you to hold your breath !)
Thanks for the lovely comments on the birds and cherries too, it is great when something works that is in your head . I do not have a lot of success on that front lol.
I was taken to the Dorset Arts and Crafts exhibition last week ,no photography ,so cannot show you some of the amazing work that was there. I did have a couple of things bought for me, I am so lucky to have a man who within reason lets me have what I would like, I am not one for diamonds and fast cars.
I have always wanted to do whitework , wonder if this will start me off on another hobby, hmmm we will wait on that one . As well as the exhibition there are lots of people demonstrating and selling and when I saw this, it reminded me of being by the sea (not that I need reminding, the seagulls are a constant reminder good job I do not mind their raucous calls).
The lady has even put feet on the bottom so it does not damage the canvas work. Inside is pockets for pens and mobile phone and a zipped compartment . I shall have this little "Portland" bag hanging from my arm when next I venture out.The other side is different.
Graeme our son took him as Martin is having problems with his other eye. I went as far as Graemes to "childmind" Ella our 12 year old grandaughter , I think it was her granny minding me! She would not let me lift a finger , she baked some fabulous cake (what talent at 12) must be in the genes as Graeme is a master baker by trade and Sue a confectioner. They both now work for a supermarket Sainsburys as managers. Such a waste of talent. Graeme (my claim to being a proud mum) was given the freedom of the city of London and made a member of the Worshipful company of Bakers. He got the highest marks in City and Guilds. He could drive sheep across the Westminster Bridge if he so wanted. LOL. Bet he couldnt get free tickets to the Olympics.Slightly off pic of Ella,
We then walked round to the harbour and knowing you would like to see a bit of Weymouth ,if you don't stop reading now.
The steps on the right lead to the little ferry boat that plows across the harbour that takes people to the other
side to save them walking all the way round. One day I will attempt to walk along the Nothe to stone pier and show you the view from there. Of course you get the locals sitting about just waiting for fish!
The police were busy giving the onlookers a show on their jet skies , bet they won't be here next week.Then we look toward the town bridge ,could give you a history lesson but you probably would be bored to tears,if you aren't already.
Onward to the Marina , where the gin palaces are moored - well a few anyway.
Not sure if you will see more from the slipway but will show you anyway.
Well folks I think I had better leave you in peace or you may never come to visit again. Hope you enjoyed your visit to Weymouth and now I am going to see who has won medals today. Wherever you are in the world hope your country is enjoying the Olympics and getting medals too. You all deserve a Gold for sticking with this. As always take good care of yourselves and for any comments you leave thanks they brighten this slightly off centre womans day.
Hugs n stuff
