Happy New Year Everyone!
On my crochet hook at the moment is still the Darcey dress from a Debbie Bliss pattern. It’s gradually getting there and I’ll be able to share the finished project with you all on here soon…
In the meantime I wanted to share this wonderful piece of ‘beach art’ which we stumbled across on Sunday.
Oh how it rained on Sunday! High winds with heavy rain that even our dog refused to go out in! So when it stopped late in the afternoon we were all keen to get some fresh air and took a stroll down to the beach in the fading light…
The sea was still rough and quite a spectacular sight.
Then we saw this tangle of fishermen’s ropes, netting, seaweed and a buoy washed up on the beach. It looked so great with those colours and textures perfectly arranged…
I couldn’t have arranged those materials any better myself. The sea did an impressive job of binding those materials together!
I wanted to pick the whole bundle up and take it home with us to display in our garden but you wouldn’t believe how heavy it all was! Just too heavy to drag home!
Luckily I had my camera with me (something I’m making sure I have with me more and more, having experienced too many “I wish I had my camera” moments!) and I managed to get these photos.
The beach walk really ‘blew the cobwebs away’ and we reminded ourselves how grateful we should be and how fortunate we are to live so close to such a place.
Being confined to the house for the majority of the day due to the persistent rain did mean I was able to get a decent amount of crochet done earlier in the day…hooray!
Happy Crocheting Everyone!
