Sea glass earrings

It's been a while since I made any new sea glass designs, and as I've had a couple of fairly well-matched pieces set aside for earrings since last year, I thought it was time I did something with them. It's quite difficult to find two pieces of sea glass that are similar enough in size, … Continue reading Sea glass earrings

Snowy Days

We're in lockdown again at the moment, so walks are restricted to familiar routes in the area surrounding the house. There are several paths to choose from, but even so, it could get a little repetitive, so it's actually been lovely to have several falls of snow over the past few weeks.

A Summer Walk

I was supposed to be doing a 26 mile charity walk in July,  along the Northumberland coast. Sadly, like so much else this year, it had to be cancelled. To make up for it a little, I concocted my own challenge walk, which may have been lacking in length at just shy of 15 miles, … Continue reading A Summer Walk
