Hope you had a good Easter break and managed a few outings as we did, despite the bitter wind. There's not much on the sewing side to show you at the moment, so I thought I'd share some of my photos with you instead.
This was taken inside the Pandora Inn at Restronguet Creek, newly restored after the fire in 2011.
|daffs, boats, a creek & a pontoon|
Yesterday, along with our visiting family we decided on a trip to The Lost Gardens of Heligan, we stopped at Mevagissey first, it was bracing to say the least but I can't resist the colours and textures found in a harbour...........
|and boats of course|
Next stop Heligan, fed and watered in the cafe, wrapped up against the wind and we were off to the lost gardens. So much to photograph and I did, until my battery ran out, here is a small selection.

I have been a bit creative, I want to use some tea bags in a project but they're to floppy for their purpose, so I decided to wax them. I used a small bees wax candle, the results are quite lovely and perfect for what I want.
As I had everything set up I continued to wax painted papers and bought hand made papers.
Oops........got carried away and had to use an ordinary candle, I now have a bag full of waxed papers, hopefully they will feature in something soon. Hope there's something there you liked and we'll be back with a stitch related post next time.
Bye for now
