Beach beckons: lunch by the sea

with good friends today, though the weather is surly, decidedly unpromising.

Looking back to last week’s 6-w-S there has been negative progress on the scrappy quilt project.  I added the border and assembled the backing, also from scraps.  I tried to make the quilt sandwich but it didn’t work.  The corners cockled up and it looked awful, so I laboriously unpicked the border to have a re-think.  I do miss my big table, and can no longer work on the floor.  I think I have found a solution which requires a DIY shop for some pipe lagging, of which more anon.

The magnolia tree next door has made  progress, despite frost this week, so there’s something good in the offing.

  4. Frost in late Feb seems odd for you.hope that magnolia tree crawled under a blanket just like you must on frosty nights.

  5. Lunch by the sea as long as it’s indoors sounds wonderful to me. It’s been years… I need to go again. Does the soul good. Spring is wanting to come here too but it’s fickle. I’m curious to see how you solve your table problem. Mine is too small and the sandwich came out a bit wonky. Floor is out of the question so this could be an instructional post for us all. We are dry today but more rain tomorrow. Mostly dry all week, finally.

    I hope the restaurant has a large window so you can be cosy inside but still look at the sea. Bon appetit!

  8. Lunch by the sea sounds good – even if the weather is dull, the views should be dramatic.

    Spring, here, remains a distant dream, almost an impossibility. I long for any green that isn’t evergreen. Give me some leaves, Lord.

    The lagging trick works so long as you get the wide stuff, and so do ‘pool noodles’ if you have them there? About 4″ diameter 6 ft long dense foam cylinders intended as flotation aids in the swimming pool. Hope it works for you!

    Surly sounds about right, Viv 🙂 We had a very invigorating walk up at Roker yesterday, and passed a very promising fish restaurant. I’d slipped over in the mud so wasn’t suitably attired 🙂 Enjoy your day!
