Crochet cross country

abb

aaaaaaaah – that view!!!

On Monday a friend and I went off to meander around West Dorset and take in some ozone packed Art on display through Dorset Arts Weeks .

We drove to Abbotsbury and visited Dansel Wood Gallery. We had met there when we both worked in the Gallery 20 years ago. The view above was on my journey to work each morning and it never failed to give me a gasp of pleasure, and I thought I must have one of the best commutes in the world! (the ferry across Sydney Harbour Australia possibly just beats it!).

I can highly recommend the coffee shop at Dansel too – giving time for a catch-up chat with our former boss,  and to do a spot of crochet

I’m so enjoying building memories into this throw.

Then on to a blustery Burton Bradstock for a blast along the beach

adding a few more stitches at the original home of Summer Flightckme

 

Gorgeous Exhibition!!!! Wonderful space, delightful artist!

And on to lunch at Down House Farm Cafe

it is on the footpath and a bit tricky to get to by car, but well worth it for the friendly service, delicious menu and wonderful viewsview

and time for a more crochetfoot

 

Do you like my co-ordinating new sandals! Made by Adesso, bought in Wimborne’s Doris and Daisy ?

whilst my friend browsed through the book to see where we would go next

A wonderful sunny Dorset day filled with Stunning Views, The Sea, Art, Friendship and re-connecting with old friends – all now crocheted into and held snuggly by my Summer Flight Throw.

      🙂 so glad you like the post – I love having you along on my jaunts around the countryside! Do you build memories into your work? I really like the way each object I make is like a few pages in a visual diary

      • Me too, love tagging along with you! And yeah, those WIPs are like memory albums 🙂 If our projects could talk, right? ‘Guess that’s why we all blog about them 🙂 ❤ ❤
