Day trip to Mersea

I managed to get a bit of stitching done last night on my sunset wall-hanging( photo's to be posted at a later date). I was on babysitting duties last night for my 2 grandsons. As the youngest woke up and needed lots of cuddles, I didnt get that much done -I'm not complaing!

Today I took my youngest daughter (13) to Mersea. I love the fact that Mersea has not become commercialised. We only just got on to the island before high tide covered the causeway. I spent the time collecting shells and stones, watching the birds, especially the Oyster Catchers, taking lots of photo's and chilling out. My daughter collected stones and shells but managed to get covered in mud in the process! And thats when we bumped into the treasurer of my Embroiderer's Guild!

I wont get much stitching done if any tonight, as I have to pack my bits and bobs for tomorrow. The four of us that are involvrd with School House Arts, are going to learn how to use our camera properly. We are being taught by Margarets and Debs Etsy friend.
