I SEE SKIES OF BLUE AND CLOUDS OF WHITE....
It's been a fun week with family visits, lovely meals and lots of fab walks - this early retirement lark isn't half bad :-D
Thanks for all the great comments and entries for my giveaway last week...the winner of the little zippy bag is:
If you could email me your address, I'll get it off to you ASAP! Hope you find it useful :-D
I haven't done that much sewing this week as there have been other priorities but I did get my scraps box out to see if I could find odds and sods to make lavender sachets with. I found where the stuffing was hidden too, so all is good! The only problem is that my dried lavender needs replacing, the pong has gone...my neighbour has a few lavender bushes in full flower at the moment, I might have to beg some off her to dry.
I would love to tell you that this is the sum total of my scraps but I'd be a naughty little fibber if I did!!
The reason for my title lyric this week is this:
This is Worm's Head right at the end of the Gower Peninsula, we walked there on Monday and from an overcast sky at the start, it turned into this. What a great morning we all had.
Worm's Head from the other side - it's got nothing to do with earthworms but comes from the Viking word 'Wyrm' meaning Dragon and was named by Sweyn the Viking, so the story goes!
It's just round the headland from this beach, Rhossili, which often features in the Top 10 Best Beaches of Wales/UK/World. If you look just to the left of the hill, you can see land in the distance, that's where I live, so I get to look across at this scene every day. Tough huh?!
As we walked along, we saw this:
Odd little plastic shelters, each of which had a table, chair and artists easel. There was also an Outside Broadcast Unit set up and a notice that said The Landscape Painter of the Year series on Sky TV was being filmed Tues/Wed. We were just a day too early!
And they'll be facing the famous view - I wish we could see the programme when it airs, but we don't have SKY. I hope the contestants have fun painting that gorgeous view!
Take care all and have a fab week. I know Julia's been having a wonderful time in the US but I'm looking forward to catching up with her :-)
