I'm happy to say that the rain eventually cleared on Saturday and the sun came out long enough for us to have a brisk walk by the sea. Photos to show later, but first i must show you what Elaine sent me as a belated birthday gift.
First a lovely stitched and finished pin keep - so cute :-)
A great chart, some needles and a pair of scissors, she also included some coloured pins but they must be on the very edge of the photo
Thank you Elaine, i love everything :-)
I made a start on Littlehouse Neighbourhood back at the beginning of February (wow, where did that month go!!) As you can see not a lot of progress, but i enjoyed putting in what stitches are there.
I have Siobhan to thank for my next new start because i first came across it on her blog, you must have seen it on endless blog posts by now but here is my start on Mary Glover anyway.
Here's some more over the Harbour
I've only been to Weymouth once before, when the girls were smaller, but i remember the clock, when i mentioned it to Mark he said he couldn't remember seeing a clock although he has been there since January and must have driven passed it several times, i swear he goes around with his eyes shut, lol, i mean, how could you miss something like that!
The Jubilee Clock - built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.
I would have loved a photo of the whole thing but there are some major road works going on and they chose the base of the clock to store that horrible orange netting and barriers.
Here is another fantastic building on the sea front
This church is just at the back of the holiday park Mark is working at, a really lovely place, and the grounds are kept very neat. Don't you just love that entrance!
I cropped the next photo down and it does look a little squashed but i liked it because it shows the horse on the hill in the background, can you see it?
I was told, rightly or wrongly(someone may be able to confirm or dispute this perhaps?) that the horse was put there because George III used to ride his own house up and down that hill.
And on that note i will leave you, i have to get into my own chariot now and collect my daughter from work
I will share a few more pictures on my photo blog over the next couple of days.
