New design for a new cushion.

I have been very busy in this rather bad weather making new cushions.
The rabbit is one I made this weekend - really love it.

More to come in my next post.

There are no words ……………………..

At Kerjacob the sun shines today but my heart and head
are full of sadness for La France.

"Love to you " - new pieces.

Now that winter is on its way
and I'm spending more time inside
 I'm busy
working on new things.

I've just finished eight cushions 
which I've made using linen
and images that I've printed.

At this very moment I'm waiting for parts 
to dry on 2015 Christmas cards.

I can't show those as there'll be
no surprises in the post
for family and friends !

Later this month I'll be at my village's
Christmas fair here in

Hope you like what I'm making !

Tags to go on presents
or just to hang wherever you want to make you smile !

Linen with old mother of pearl buttons.

Anyone for tea ?

For those of you who love cats .

Just love this little girl with flowers in her hair.

Smaller cushion again in linen.

Vintage cutlery printed on to linen.

All cushions and tags for sale from Pilgrim and Pie.

In the garden at Kerjacob.

I'm doing some work in the garden whilst we have no rain.
Taking a break late this morning I went
for a walk with my camera.

So many beautiful colours still to find
before the winter really comes.

Quiberon peninsula in October sunshine.

Just under two hours drive from Kerjacob is the
Quiberon peninsula.

A stunningly beautiful place.
However in the summer it is not the place
to be if you prefer more solitude.

Living here we have the chance to go when we choose.

Last week the weather was wonderful, sunny and warm.
A rather strong wind but not one to bother us at all.

On two evenings we sat and watched the sun go down.
Peaceful and quiet with only a few people out for a 
walk or a run.

The beaches are sandy and sparkle with mica in the sand.
It was like walking with tiny diamonds catching the sunlight.

Many birds were enjoying the tiny sea life which came in with the tide.

I loved the sculptured stones and large " galets ".
Here and there where towers that someone had made and left
as their own tribute to the sea.

In some places the rocks looked like whales about to surface and then some that were
just like a giant fish sitting basking in the sun.

I loved the pattern of the fences and the seed heads - just like a piece
of woven and embroidered textile …….. inspiration for drawings I'm sure.

It was the first time for us here but I'm very certain we'll be back but only when its
quiet and one can get lost in the beauty of nature and the elements.

Images from Cornwall - September .

As is my way, I like to take photographs
of things that catch my eye.
Things that are interesting, creative 
and unusual.

So here's some images that I noticed
when we went to Mousehole
( yes, really its called that but not pronounced that way ! )

Just loved this little homemade sign on a clapboard cottage.

Tourist ware with a difference.

The fishing harbour at Mousehole.

More fishing boats than shops and people - wonderful !

Loved this stencil - especially against the grey - green background.

The on to Sennan Cove - beautiful raw and quiet
 - how parts of Cornwall can still be.

Lobster pots.

Fishing floats.

More floats - love the muted colours.

This is a fascinating building once used to haul up the fishing boats.
Inside there would have been a huge capstan that was turned by men.

Finally the sunset at Sennan - somewhere Mr P has told me about for many years.
