''Oh I do love to be beside the seaside ......"

The weather here has been fairly mixed the last few weeks. Red hot then heavy rain. At least the rain has been warm (that's how we know it's summer). A day at the seaside I felt was needed. Didn't quite make to the coast but did get as far as Henshaws arts and craft centre and their Urban beach.

If you can't get to the coast bring the coast to you. That what they have done at Henshaws and it the there from 6th to 27th of August. Was the opening day that I went too, live music all day until 9pm, craft stalls, food, beer, face painting. My grandchildren came along and had a great time playing in the sand and joining in with other activities on offer. Pagebooks and stuff were there too. All in all a great day out.

Henshaws is an Arts and craft centre that caters for people with learning difficulties and visual impairments, a safe environment for them to work and be creative. There is a small cafe, gift shop and gardens for a visitor to look around. So if your ever in Knaresborough call in have a cuppa.

I'm still here

This is my first time blogging for a while, time sometimes gets away from me. 

Here are a few things that I'm working on at the moment.

First up some book covers made from drinks cans ready to have text blocks added.

And my lastest design got my seaside set again waiting to be sewn up.

Also another box finished to take a memory stick for wedding images.

Watch this space.
