Embroidery Inspiration




I find that you can get great inspiration from children's colouring books. These fun little sea creatures, found on a menu, would look brilliant as an embroidery or a small motif on a child's T-shirt.
I had a lovely birthday weekend away at Trebarwith Strand....not in the Port William hotel - in the van! But this was the view....stunning location.



The National Trust, Old Post Office in Tintagel has some lovely antique samplers on display - but difficult to photograph! Many were stitched by 9 year olds!!






And out in the garden I was surprised to see a Snake's Head Fritillary in bloom so early.












Pasties for lunch...it was also St Piran's day last Tuesday....patron saint of Cornwall.



A fabulous weekend xx
