In addition this week I have another day of design planned and hope that this Wednesday will be hot and sunny and I can go for a walk along the cliff top with my journal. I would like to see all the wild flowers I spotted the other day when I drove past. There is always something to pick up and bring home for inspiration and I could sit on a seat and look out to sea with my idea jotter ... Its a plan at least.
When I get back home I could then go in the garden with my design journal and sit and have a doodle. As I said the other day journaling in the garden is really relaxing and also very fruitful. My mind comes alive amongst the flowers and the wildlife.
Talking of wildlife who did I see again but the little wood pecker! I have not seen him since last year and I thought he had moved on to pastures new or indeed got lost and found us by mistake last year. If the later is the case he has found us again and I am happy about it. Small little thing and until I saw him last year I thought wood peckers were much larger but this little fella is compact and bijoux ..
My mother in law told me that they like coconut so I have some in my cupboard and hope to entice
him back again this week, if the bloomin' seagulls do not eat it all up first. Its a free for all when they are in the garden and the pigeons try and strut their stuff as much as to say ' our garden, our coconut' then this huge seagull with a large sharp beak start charging towards them and they loose all bravery and let them have it. Mind you so would I, a baby one came into our garden the other week ... baby!? it was like an ostrich! If it had not been for its stubbly brown feathers I would not have believed it I am sure of that.
Before I start my day I am going to get two stitchery work baskets ready as I still have some fabrics to put away so whilst doing that I can get out what is needed and get it ready for when I have finished the mushrooms. I do not want to finish it I am in love with stitching it and in love with the whimsy of it... still all good things and all that!
On that note I will love and leave you for today. I hope you all have a wonderful day and the sun is shinning down on you where ever you live. Really not sure what our weather will do today as it says we will have thunder storms today and its 21 degrees.... The elusive thunder that we have been warned about and that has never shown up is apparently on its way today .... will see if today they may be right. You wonder don't you if the weather people are sat there in their tower and say so what shall we forecast for the Dorset coastline then. Yes thunder OK.... then Oh Joe best change that quick its full sun now ... Do they stand on a balcony high up with a wet finger in the air?
Have a wonderful day and as always Happy Stitching! XX
