This picture was taken when the sun was shining, but the weather was mostly pretty dire - what do you expect for early February? I really was quite happy about this because it meant I could sit with a crackling log fire, a hot cup of tea and piece away without thinking I should be outside enjoying the scenery. After all, I do go to Port Isaac principally to piece!!
So, without further ado... THIS is what I created during the first week of my stay. Strangely, it was inspired by one of my autumn Port Isaac retreats where the weather was similarly bad and made a sort of mini-maelstrom in the harbour. I am SO looking forward to quilting it, as it matches very nicely with the wallpaper in our main bedroom here in France, but I may have to fight off my son, who has fallen in love with it... some things don't change!
