Bring Me Sunshine

It is feeling a bit end of summer here; end of season, like a 1950s holiday camp packing up at the end of summer.

The bunting on the shed is looking a bit forlorn and droopy in the grey light.

A few shells lie scattered around from beach trips.

And there is a little pile of beach stones at the front door.


There's only one thing for it.... Get out the wool odds and ends.... it is time for a new blanket.

Not having completely given up on summer, this one is for the backseat of my pale blue VW Beetle for little winter trips to the beach.

I'll race along the beach, in the cold north Edinburgh wind - "bracing" they call it - and then dive back into my beetle to watch the waves, with a cup of coffee from my thermos and a digestive biscuit or two to nibble on.

p.s. I don't actually own a pale blue Beetle, but we can all dream can't we? :)

  1. Do you know ..... you really had me going then ..... we used to have Beetles and I thought ..... Oh! I do miss a Beetle ..... lucky lady to have a pale blue one! But I am so glad to have found your blog and all your gorgeous crochet postings, I have been feasting on it for ages tonight :0) I shall be calling back often!
