Not sure where to start, I think the trip to Broadchurch /West Bay , We decided to go see the Blue House which housed David Tennant in the series, I think it is up for sale for Mega bucks. Crazy money for what is just a river hut,I suppose it has connections that people will pay for ,but me no way would I pay the price they are saying it is worth. Here it is and some other pics of West Bay. If you haven't watched the series , sorry you will not have a clue what I am waffling on about.
For a winters day it was relatively busy but in the summer it is like most places on the coast ,busy. The townspeople were busy sprucing up boats and painting their cafes.
I think I was a bit too far away to take this man painting a table, He may have thought it a bit odd if I had asked to take a picture of him. However the men painting boats must have thought their jobs went on like the next picture.
So I will leave this bit of a day out with a pic of some boys (oops ,got you all excited there didn't I )mean bouys.These were bright orange not pink ,my camera is a bit off on colours. See a bad workman always blames his tools lol.
From my friend Julie oh did she spoil me. We met through NH and I have to say she is someone whose friendship I would hate to lose.Her gifts to me were these.
So tweeny with pins and calendar inside,beautifully finished and that was not all.Along with this came fabric ,ribbon , the wool she had embroidered it (yes wool) and a dear little sheep peg.All on a sheep tray, Everything in a lovely spring green and so perfect.
Now to Tina, who you remember I do a Hallowe'en exchange with. I puzzled over this one as it had someones name on I did not recognise ,it was sent from the states with a signed for label . As I was not in when the postie tried to deliver it ,I had to collect it from the P,O. I am afraid I cheated with this one as I was so curious, I opened it on the day before , When I saw my name on the card I still had not got a clue, the writing was unrecognisable to me. I do know usually from postmarks ,names on back etc.So I opened the card and it say Have the happiest of Birthdays from your friend Tina. I dont know anyone in the states called Tina I thought. The only Tina I know lives in the midlands.I did not think she was on hols or anything so after I had opened it I thought it had to be her, so I mailed a thankyou and phew she replied to say Yes it was her. She had ordered one for herself and thought I would like one too. How sweet is that. It is so pretty a velveteen strawberry .
I am going to have to leave you as the dog and Martin have just come back dripping ,I will have to dry dog as I cannot stand the smell of wet dog. Shall catch up in the week with some more birthday and stitching progress to show you. Take great care of yourselves ,Be back soon.
Much love Barb. Please excuse the length of this and any grammatical mistakes , brain on go slow.
