Lindisfarne - always beautiful, whatever time of the year you visit.
Even on a dull day in March.
An iconic view of the castle, with a handy boat placed perfectly for the shot.
Looking across to Bamburgh Castle and waving to mum.
More fun with the 48 Weeks course by Donna Downey.
This is week 45 and as usual I put my own spin on things.
Can’t beleive I have almost finished, but also have given up trying to keep to a decline - ha,ha, got to laugh at the spellchecker on a Mac - I meant deadline, but decline is fitting too!
With all the family upheavals I feel as if I am walking through treacle just now.
Its hard to get anything started, never mind finished.
Time is evaporating and everything seems to be taking much longer than usual to achieve.
This is one of my favourite sketchbook spreads.
Could be the name of a pub don’t you think?
“The Shift & Kirtle"
This is first view of some new work and not a corset in sight.
We’re rocking fifteenth century peasant fashion, not Downton Abbey this time.
Have made a mock up using an old duvet cover…. then did a little cutting and pinning to get the shape I wanted.
Firstly on the front…...
Then on the back...
Went for a walk with DH around Alnwick castle. Literally AROUND the castle.
Fans of Blackadder will recognise the shot….
For once my legs didn’t cramp up too much, they are really impeding my walk capabilities.
The calcium supplements are doing some good, but its not the whole story and I know there’s something else out of balance…. but then we knew that years ago, cortisol is screwed, HRT is necessary…. thyroid spluttering but not enough for the NHS to treat….
Talking of treat (ing), we headed to Nood Food for lunch - very different and lovely.
Especially at the end of a good walk.
During half term we took mums ashes and scattered them on the beach at Bamburgh as she had requested.
It was always her favourite place to go and walk and paddle (whatever the weather).
Fond memories of paddling in the depths of winter wrapped in so many layers we couldn’t bend down.
I shall go along every now and them to say hello and have a chat.
She now has an eternal view of the castle and the Farne Islands.
Harthope Valley, just up and over a hill from home….. heather burning, smoke and a bit of tweaking to give a lovely photo.
It made it into the paper, I set myself a challenge, see how many I get get in throughout the year.
Unfortunately the print quality is pretty dreadful.
