Lovely readers know I adore bunting and beach huts. Recently I blogged about both.
I had made some bunting to donate to a friend for a charity event. I used cotton fabric from my fabric stash which I’d been holding onto for something special. I loved it so much it was almost difficult to gift it! Therefore I made another length for myself.
We’ve just been away to France for a few days. We had glorious sunshine, mostly.
A little visit to a nearby town, Houlgate, reminded me of the inspiration for the beach hut in another recent blog post (on the right!)
Houlgate has this great line of beach huts, each year reconstructed on the promenade. I often wonder where they go for the winter. This year we were there when workmen were putting together the last few and lining them all up ready for their summer use. They are numbered, some are named and even though I have been visiting for more than ten years I have never counted how many there are. In this photo the last one is number 154 ! Some numbers are missing, some are in better condition than others, but they are all orange and white stripes.
As for crafting over the last few days… here’s a snippet of me one afternoon …
Knitting and sewing is high on the agenda at the moment but so is getting a little bronzed !
Where do you like to knit if you get the chance?
