Week in stitch, spirit doll 3 and a walk

 Here is my week in stitch.
A day late I am afraid.
Monday we went walking in drizzle. Tuesday I did a bit of weeding. Wednesday John took me out to look at hay paddocks in the red ute.
Thursday I went round and around tidying things up and tried out this new stitch. I felt it was appropriate for what I was doing. Total confusion.
Friday we walked on the beach before shopping and I found some shells.
Saturday we went to McLaren Vale to look at the paintings in the landscape prize and then went to walk on the beach at Pt Willunga.
Sunday I admired the flowers in my garden.Iris and geranium.
Sometimes it is hard to work out what to embroider.
I have finally finished the third of my Spirit dolls, I rather like this one, he took me ages to decide how to make his 'special affects'!
This morning we walked the cliffs at Petrels again, very cold and we were nearly blown off the path it was much more windy than we had expected.
Lovely waves and lots of white lace of foam and then this lovely granite boulder with orange lichen on it. It looks yellow in the photo but it was orange.
I am trying to tidy the house as I have house guests next week, but I am being rather slow about it.

Penny, your dolls are lovely. You live in such a beautiful place with such a variety of places to walk. These days I ache when walking so perhaps I should take the pills the Dr prescribed.
