seaglass and seabrick I found on various Welsh beaches
It’s at this time of year I get my travel-itch. It’s something about having made it through February (the month that hates me) and seeing the signs of spring that really get me thinking about going somewhere.
I currently live inland (not that you are anywhere more than 70 miles away from the sea in Britain) but I really feel more at home on the coast than anywhere else. It’s something primordial in me that needs that connection to the ocean.

Maybe that’s why I love flotsam, beach-combing and rock pooling?
My draw to the sea may stem from the fact I currently feel as if I’m on-board a ship again. I’ve got another ear infection. Yay me! No antibiotics as an adult until New Year’s Eve and now two heavy-duty doses within 3 months!
If you remember from January, knitting and crochet are pretty much off the menu. Reading (hurrah), needlepoint and sewing are most emphatically ON!
A sneak preview of something I’ve been working on since January
A set of birthday pyjamas for my mum, finished with plenty of time to spare
I even took the time to match the fabric of the pocket up with the pattern!
I used an out-of-print Simplicity pattern (4796) and the dragonfly fabric was from Abakhan in Manchester. Oh, my mum doesn’t know about these so can we keep this between ourselves? Thanks!
Here’s hoping I get back to blogging more frequently than this. I may start to share more of my Project 365 photos here (especially those with a crafting bent) so I keep my hand in; as it were! I hope to see you soon.
