As I was going to St Ives

I met a cormorant. He might have had seven wives, I didn't ask him, but he posed very nicely for his photo. The rock was a little way out to sea, so this was taken with quite a long zoom.
We went to a craft fair last Friday, not terribly successful in terms of numbers of people through the door, but I did spend a very pleasant time with my friend Karen, of Just Bunting, making lavender hearts like this one from recycled fabric. The fabric is from a vintage 60s dress. Looks a bit Liberty to me.

I  put the comment numbers into the random number generator at (still haven't figured out how to make that appear on here), and it came up with comment number five, which was

wait for it

ooh, the suspense...

I'm off now to have a little ponder about what I'm going to make for you Julie.
