First butterfly embroidered on pineapple quilt

butterfly pineapple

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.

lunch at Pirou  21.4.16

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. hay going 20.4.16 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.  Pirou plage

This picture was taken last year, in kinder weather.

    I am thinking that butterfly is well worth the pain. So smart to do in small increments.
