In every walk with nature one receives far more that she seeks

EK progresses but Band 5 is taking longer than the previous 4. It is far more intricate but I have enjoyed its twists and turns.

Do you remember this quilt I posted about in January

I have now pieced together the off cuts to make another one in reverse. Here it is on my design board.

I hope to start the quilting this week but need to choose a design.

I recently made two cushions from the same pattern but using different fabrics for the patchwork centre and linen for the surrounding strips and back panel.

This is a great way to use up offcuts of linen from samplers. I have even used small scraps on the right hand cushion for the patchwork.

The wet weather has continued and although today has been dry it has been very wintery and "grey".

We decided to walk the nature reserve between Mullion and Predannack.

The ground is very wet.

and muddy

You wouldn't want to loose your wellies in this !!!

or this

on second thoughts we had better find a way to walk around

There is always much beauty to be seen

Here is Mullion Cove

The recent storms have caused damage to both walls and you can just make out a JCB carrying out repairs and  moving boulders whilst the tide is out.

Our walk now took us back towards Predanaack.

This little cove is only accessible by sea and you can often spot seals here but none today.

A climb over the style and a last look back.

We were all tired after trudging through the mud and the car was a welcome sight.

I am now sat in front of the wood burner typing surrounded by Ray, Poppy and Blue snoring.

Blue is definitely having sweet dreams.
