My new home by the sea!

As you all know, I have just moved to hampshire..to barton on sea....so I thought I would share some beautiful views with you all..

This is a 5 min stroll from the back-door, to the beach!

This is the view of the beach from the very crumbly cliff top!

As you can see from this next shot it is literally a stones throw from the Isle of Wight and a brilliant little tea shop that overlooks the sea from the cliff top that sells the most amazing homemade clotted cream teas...unfortunately I wasn't quick enough with the camera! ~(ha ha)

And of course...the dog has to come!

It is a real photographers paradise....nooks, crannies, cascading light...textures...truly beautiful..

.....all this of course has inspired a piece of work.... being that we brits have beautiful country side and wonderful views I thought I would pay homage to all things patriotic!

Here is what I have made:

I have used ribbons and floral cotton to make the cross and a beautiful wool and cotton mix fabric to make the main bag with a raspberry cotton jute lining...I think you will agree that it is very patriotic!

...currently for sale on folksy:


  1. I'm soooo jealous!! You lucky thing!!! Seriously I wish you both every happiness & I hope everything works out. Keep us posted with your lovely pics too.
