I've had a lovely day going through my photos from earlier this year
selecting a few to share here in a gallery
as a way of catching up a little
all part of the healing process ...
|winter light on the beach
a winter beach heart I made for my "giveaway"
Tina Jensen was my winner in the heart giveaway earlier in the year
I happily put together a little package of winter inspired work and supplies
to send to Tina in her studio in Denmark
my mum came to stay and we enjoyed gentle walks
this Mousehole cat was happy to sit beside her and we all gazed out to sea ...
walking round Mousehole with my camera ...
I spotted these marks in a window of a derelict cottage
and pretty peeling paint on the fishing boats ...

my own photo of Mousehole ...
a village little changed in centuries
early morning light in the bay ...
feeling grateful to have this view from my front door
towards the middle of April I was feeling well enough to travel
my hubby took me to Falmouth for a change of scene
we stayed at the lovely Falmouth Hotel on Castle Beach
this old photo was on the wall of our hotel room
we had a lovely sea view looking over this beach
|an old photo of The Falmouth Hotel
it was a beautiful peaceful relaxing time
we didn't leave the hotel except to walk on the beach
|beach huts on Castle Beach
rocks and shells on Castle Beach
the sea a beautiful azure reflecting the sky
|rock pools on Castle Beach
on close inspection the rocks were magnificent
the strata full of colour and texture
I always take a lot of photos
for future projects and inspiration for textiles
and just because it pleases me
|tangles of seaweed

back home ...
and at the end of April my sister came to spend time with me
I was still recovering from illness so we didn't wander far
we mainly spent time doing vintage jigsaw puzzles
and walking on the beach
as you can see it was a beautiful day

|powder puff clouds and colourful buoys
I still like to play ...
in the photo below I was experimenting with some photoshop buttons
focusing on rooftops - shapes and colours
painterly textures and colours of Cornwall
(an ongoing fascination)

and on the rocky beach round the corner by The Rock Pool Café
I love to put my camera down close on the pebbles and beach finds
|green string - green tangles
so ... just a few photos to the end of April
I enjoyed putting this gallery together
and hope you liked one or two
many, many thanks indeed for all your very kind comments
I'm still replying to all the emails and messages
thank you ... till next time x
