THE TIDE IS HIGH BUT I'M HOLDING ON.
It would appear this blog has somehow become more about beach combing and driftwood than it is about sewing.
How did that happen?
Oh well I'm sure the thrill of winter walks on the beach will wear off at some point, either that or I'll actually finish a project and be able to show it on here.
In the meantime here are some pictures of todays ramble from St Leonards down to Hastings. 
In the aftermath of the recent storms and high spring tides the sea was beautiful and dramatic.
The power of it is awesome and scary all at the same time.
The shingle has been thrown high on to the beach and all over the sea front pathways right up to the doors of the beach huts, bringing with it some interesting flotsam and jetsam.
And the tide really was very high.

  2. Also, I've done several major projects in the last month, none of them sewing related!! I'm blaming it on the dread of having to unpack more boxes to find the whatsit, thinger, or whosamajig! I was good in marking my boxes "sewing stuff" but beyond that, endless digging leading to exhaustion and giving up entirely. We will get back to it though, I've no doubt!

  3. I so wish I was there feeling the spray instead of the torrential rain here in London. Did you pick up that paintbrush for a future project?
