Yesterday I went for a cycle along the coast after work in the afternoon on my new bicycle that my beautiful husband bought for me, it was glorious and so lovely to ride a bike that works!
The sea was calm and very inviting, I saw a few very brave people swimming and the smell of BBQ's in the air was so summery xox
There were some gorgeous old boats and beach huts along the way ...
Tangled fisherman's nets
Such beautiful sea side colours
I Had to stop in St.Leonards-on-Sea for some tea and cake which was scrummy, gluten free and almond based. I also spotted a newly printed guidebook for St.Leonards-on-Sea and Hastings which talks about all the rich history of these places and the modern day attractions and festivals etc. that happen throughout the year. A few lovely events to look forward to xox
Now for some (promised from the last post) zen hooky reveal...
This very easy and simple Lotus flower bracelet that I hooked up was inspired from a lovely new blog I discovered via ravelry called Creative Yarn and and the pattern can be found here.
You could make this up in any wool or cotton and embellish it with fun buttons or sequins if you like? I wore it to work today and a few people gave me a compliment or 2 which is always fun.
So maybe this has inspired you to make a quick bracelet for yourself or someone else, it's a straight forward pattern and super fast to hook up and I think looks quite impressive xox
Well, that's me for the next few days, Alice's school broke up today and I have some time off with her this Easter holiday. I'll be blogging about what we get up to no doubt!
