First butterfly embroidered on pineapple quilt
two more large ones to go plus several smaller ones. Working with the hoop makes my back hurt, so I do it in small instalments.
We had a delightful lunch party at Pirou Plage on Thursday with good friends.
The sun had shone constantly for the early part of the week,
enabling the farmer to get his hay cut, dried and carted in 4 days. As the last load trundled away, the clouds started to pile up and it’s drizzled ever since — un crachin Normand, as that kind of rain is known hereabouts. We were still able to enjoy the panoramic sea views at mid-tide
and to watch the strange tractor/boats collecting mussels and whelks ready for the Festival des Bulots this weekend.
This picture was taken last year, in kinder weather.
