I then treated myself to the latest Rowan magazine because it is full of the most beautifully photographed knitwear that I shall only ever dream about making, but love looking at!
Having decided that was probably going to be the extent of my shopping I then ventured along to the Fitzwilliam museum where there is an exhibition of Maggi Hambling wave paintings. I am a great fan of her work, and especially love her portraits and her sculpture... one of my favourites is the scallop shell on Aldeburgh beach.
I thought these new paintings of waves were stunning and very atmospheric... all that was missing was the sound of them crashing on the shingle.
And so that's it for today... except the anniversary... it is three years today since I first dipped my toes into the world of blogging. I never imagined it would last that long... but I'm not about to stop just yet. A month or so ago I thought I would be very clever and make this three year anniversary coincide with 500 posts but I'm not quite there (this is no. 463). Then I thought it might coincide with getting 100 followers but I'm up to 94 so not quite there with that either... but hey, I'll have a little giveaway anyway.
So if you fancy winning either a little pin cushion jar or a fabric corsage all you have to do is leave a comment on this post... nothing more... except perhaps tell me which one you would prefer and what colour you would like. I will draw three winners... one in a weeks time (Friday 30th July) to celebrate three years of blogging, one when I reach 100 followers so who knows when that will be... and the last one when I reach 500 posts... which could be quite a while yet!
