The cottage we stayed at was a 10 minute walk to the sea, a beautiful coast road surrounded by the Cornish hedges blooming with late Spring flowers and wildlife. I couldn't resist taking this photo of a snail shell, hidden amongst the gorze.
The walk to the seapath
I love the pink, greens, blues and yellows of the sea thrift, bluebells, ferns and the yellow gorze. I visited a fabric shop in St. Just www.littleblossomsstjust.com and bought some fat quarters to go towards making a quilt where the colours remind me of the hedges and walk to the coast.
I cut the fabric into squares, and will be adding different borders.
Also added was a little miniature cross stitch, found in a thrift shop in Marazion.
We called in for a delicious cooked breakfast at the Kegan Teg at the market square in St. Just.
I went to St.Ives, and had a look in Poppy Trefferys' lovely shop full of goodies, and bought a pretty badge brooch with a little daisy on it, no photo as it was part of a birthday present.
I popped into the Seasalt shop
where the other half of the present was purchased, a beautiful scarf, based
on flowers that grow in The Scilly Isles. The clothes seasalt sell are very much to my liking, and in between thrift shop bargains I treat my self to an occasional item from them. I bought a rather handy jacket with hood in a sea blue colour.
I took a couple of hoops with me to work on while staying at the cottage, I will be adding bits of fabric to this one.
and writing on this one which reminds me of the stripes on deckchairs.
The views from the cottage in the evening where there were a lots of coast magazines to read in front of the
Whist at the cottage I received an email from the person who ordered a quilt I mentioned in my last blog. They were very happy with it, which made me happy too!
We also took a small boat ride across the Helford River, and spent an enjoyable few hours sat outside a pub, a waitress went past with bowls of hand cut chips that looked so good I ordered some too. Rather yummy especially since we had such a beautiful view. I should have taken a photo but didn't want the food to go cold!
A great time was had by all. So much so we are going again in September to celebrate my birthday!
Hopefully my next blog will follow shortly. Probably including more about Cornwall. I have been reading lots of my favourite bloggers posts, and thank you for reading mine.
