*Note to self.. Read the message and do it. 'Clear, Tidy Studio'.. I have such good intentions.. But decided that the beach was a better option this afternoon..
Grandson and his mama on the beach..Lots of people about, haven't seen Church Cove this busy since the summer, and how the beach has changed, the sea has chucked up all the rocks onto the beach where last week there was soft sand. I expect it will change again, and again as the storms and bad weather continue.
I have this plan that if I take a carrier bag down to the beach each time I go and fill it with plastic I will hope to help the environment in some small way.. So this afternoon I collected my bag of plastic that the sea had thrown up and promptly lost my camera.. A long '2 hours' later I finally find it next to the rubbish bin where I put the bag of plastic beach combings. Grrrr!

I'm still here... Things are a little tough, but Maud is doing OK, she has just had 4:6 of her treatments, Here she is trying to get Julienana's glasses back into the glasses case just before her treatment on Friday.. Wearing her new cardi, it's about all the creativity I manage at the moment, knitting whilst wiling away the hours with Maud and Nicole at the hospital.. It's surprising what you can make with 3 odd balls from a charity shop and a few odd buttons that are the best part of 30 years old.. Recycling I've been doing it for donkey's years without realizing it..
We have had some amazing storms here lately, this was Gunwalloe, Church Cove Beach yesterday morning at high tide.
The beach and the sea looked as if it were all made of marshmallows
Look into the distance, those are not white cliffs..
The natural world never ceases to amaze me..
I think blogger is going a little peculiar, this post is typed in upper and lower case Ariel font, but is showing a mix of capitals... Very strange...

(I live in hope....)
Yesterday was the first time that I managed to get into the studio since early December.. And the mess.. Who could I blame.... No one but myself!
This is my work bench, so full of clutter, even my trusty Bernina is fighting for space. I have had some school trousers to patch for my grandson, they have been waiting for weeks so I am happy to say that is one job finished.. A small accomplishment I know but at the moment I am pleased to have achieved that.
Now I intend to service my lovely 801 Sport and look after her a little better.. She is over 30 years old and I wouldn't swap her for the world..
Keep sending me your lovely messages....
I love them all.
Thank you, my lovely blogging friends you
are helping to keep me sane at this moment in time.
