You might know my DH would find a quirky shot!
We had our coats on because it had been chilly, not to say freezing, on the boat! We soon warmed up in the glorious warm sunshine.
Isn't this a beautiful and inspiring view across the bay? The sand really is that white (apart from the excess of seaweed washed up by the tide). I have been working with this photograph in Photoshop and hope it will inspire me into making a wall hanging to incorporate some of my beach finds.
These beautiful Agapanthus are everywhere on Scilly and are grown commercially in fields. The climate is so mild that many sub-tropical species thrive. As you can see we had arrived too late to enjoy the blue of the flowers but the seed heads are very sculptural. We took a walk around the bay on St Mary's Island to a restaurant called Juliet's Garden and enjoyed a leisurely lunch looking out over the bay and the beautiful blue waters. I had a really spooky feeling of deja vu sitting in this terraced garden - very strange.

I have to admit I am a bad blogger for not passing these awards on. I read so many wonderful and stimulating blogs, many of which are in my side bar. As I'm still under the weather I am going to say, if I visit your blog and leave a comment please accept this award from me and post it on your own blog. And Jean, thank you very much for these lovely awards. I hope you are feeling better today.
Jude Hill who blogs as Spirit Cloth has a second blog called "What if..." . Just recently she has posed the question "what if we get crazy?" Her question, of course, relates to crazy quilting and how we may choose to work other than traditionally. Since I have already set up a piece of crazy quilting that has no rules other than the initial colour I have signed up to play along with her and many others to produce a piece, or pieces, of crazy quilting (or not quilted!). There is no time limit to this (just right for me) and absolutely no rules and Jude has offered to make a piece of crazy quilting for each participant. You won't be surprised that my first piece is the crazy quilting block I have started for the Take it Further challenge. While it will be worked with balance in mind I am sure that all the while I am working I will be asking myself "What if..." Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I will have plenty of progress to show. Just in case Jude looks in here this is a reminder of the piece I am working on....
