All tired out Grandson!

A trip to 'The Deep' and as soon as we got home, it was "Bob on" meaning put Bob the Builder dvd on and grandson jumped up on the chair............but by the time I'd turned round, this is how he was! Being two years old is very tiring!

We both were spellbound by these.
I once took my son and daughter to Denmark and one day on a  beach,
we saw zillions of them. Most about 4" to 10" across and everso many beached on the waters edge as the tide went out.
The sea was so full of them you couldnt easily walk through the water and we since I wasn't sure if they'd sting, we stayed out of the water!
What to do with a crochet doily?
Well, scrunch it up as a flower and put it on a headband.
Now need to find a girlie, girl to give it to!


This was a calming trip to the coast last sunday, and this is how beaches should be!
Well it should have been a trip to a carboot out that way .. but when we got there .... we realised I'd done this before, and gone on sunday when infact it was on a tuesday or the mistake lol

So any excuse to beachcomb, we drove on a little and spent an hour or two on North Beach at Bridlington, arriving there about 9ish. It was blissfully warm, a light breeze and the dog walkers were out.

Naturally we came home with a carrier bag of bits, drfitwood, crabs shells, stones with holes in them.....because of course they are so magical!
The tide was out,which was really kind of it so we could walk that bit farther.
We have such lovely beaches up here in the North East
and  of course further up north there  are beaches to die for around Newcastle and above.

More pins

Currently off work a couple of days, recovering from some bug or other, had laryngitus, followed by high temps and much sneezing, felt dire and now feel shattered .
Voice returning now, but lost most of weekend and even missed my grandsons 2nd bday bar-b-que.........
However, found these and hadnt pictured them so here they are. Have used upholstery fabrics for four of them and am pleased with the three, which look lush, not sure about the top left flowers brown and white though, may take them apart yet.
The other four are more my usual interpretations.
