I had a very enjoyable day at Scunthorpe Arts Showcase at Heslam Park last Sunday and as it quietened down in the afternoon, I cracked on with the stitching for the locket insert I showed you last week. The rose bush now has daisies underneath with petals no more than 2mm long.

The inside of the locket was a bit shabby so I lined it with more of the silk carrier rod. It has such a luscious lustre.

I also played with some needle felting to upcycle a silvertone pendant blank. One of the children said it reminded them of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ picture, which was very pleasing! The background is a mixture of merino wool and silk and the spirals are tiny scraps of hand spun crewel wool.

We also had a family day out in Filey, on the Yorkshire coast.

It is a delightful unspoilt seaside town with the most amazing stretch of sand with rock pools at the north end. It yielded enough treasures to keep me happy.

I’m particularly pleased with the fossil shell I spotted in a rock pool.

And the heavily crazed piece of pottery.

We were entertained by the cutest hermit crabs in the rock pools, enjoyed great fish and chips and had a fabulous day out.
