I have been quiet on the blog front as we are back in Spain for our annual winter dose of sunshine and warmth. We managed to get here with storm Gloria chasing our tail and the first few days of our stay were wet and windy. But once she moved on the sunshine returned and we have been having beautiful weather.
Whilst not out and about I have resurected the crochet that I was working on last February and that is what I was working on last night. This is how far I had got at the end of last years holiday.
The blocks are all different - free patterns from the internet. I worked another 10 blocks then started putting them together. Here is where I was yesterday.
I was working on the strip on the left for FNWF's
Today I have made and added another strip so just yesterdays strip to add in and that final block then I can square off.
I plan to add a border using a variety of stitches in keeping with the 'sampler' theme.
I had a lovely day out last weekend when I joined five other ladies on a one day silver jewelery making course at https://www.castellondebedar.com/ Bedar is a small hill town about 20 minutes inland which has an amazing view of the coast. This was our lunchtime view.
Clare took us through all the processes of making a ring and we each went home with a completed ring. Here is mine.
What a great day out and Clare's and partner Shane kept us well fed and watered with a delicious lunch. Here we are busily working away.
As usual we have been up and down the coast visiting favourite places. This beach was new to us though - Playa de Monsul. Its reached by driving about 7km's along a dusty track from San Jose.
Very beautiful. On the way back to San Jose we passed these goats munching away.
Happy Stitching from Spain!
