Stitch and walk

 Here is my week in stitch, Walking the beach on Monday, washing and ironing on Tuesday. very windy on Wednesday with both wet and sun.
Losing my best and favorite mare during foaling, and losing her foal as well on Thursday. A horrid day.
Friday Max was attacked by willy wagtails whose chicks had just come out of the nest. On saturday we went to the local agricultural show and I bought a 'named' geranium and Yesterday, Sunday, I didnt do a lot but did do some embroidery.
I have also been playing around with fabric scraps and doing some embroidery on small scale pieces. W"e will see where that will go, perhaps several put together as a small art quilt.
This morning it was cold and damp and windy but we walked along the cliffs near Petrels' lots of noisy thumping waves and froth and bubble a great walk.

LOVE the embroidered washing on the line. The whole concept of a week in embroidery is wonderful.

So sorry for the loss of your mare and foal, Penny. A sad week for you to record in your embroidery diary but lovely pictures of your walk, despite the cold and damp.

I really like the idea of embroidering your week - you do it so well. You manage to go on lots of interesting walks too. Cheers

I know I'm repeating myself but I really love your stitched stories.
A lovely way to remember your beloved mare.
