Everyone talks of the thersputic powers of the sea, well l have to agree with them after spending a glorious evening on the beach in Musselburgh while visiting my Mum over the weekend. Idgy and I (and of course Martha) spent a good 2 hours beachcombing for shells and driftwood.
Some pieces were so sculptural in design and yet others bleached white, like the bones of long dead pirates washed ashore (or is that just my old Johnny Depp fantasy hoving into view!), anyway we collected some fabulous pieces and l have great plans to incorporate some smaller bits into hangers with hearts etc, something to add to my Love Boat and beachy collection.
After all the stress of the past week it really calmed me down to just wander around on the beach with the sand between my toes and my two best pals having fun in the evening sunshine. I have come home much renewed and ready to tackle that huge pile of sewing for Christmas stock.
