The summer holiday edition

2013-08-13 Xabia Cabo di San Antonio (31)

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks sunning myself on the Costa Blanca in Spain …. one of my truly favourite places. I deliberately didn’t take any sewing (or knitting!) with me to make sure I properly recharged my batteries ….

…. so a lot of this happened ….

but we did go on a bit of an explore, too, up to the Cabo de San Antonio  – plenty to spark the imagination and get my creativity flowing …

the texture and pattern of a rusted gate, threaded through with barbed wire ….

looking through the trees into the barred entrance of an old windmill …

bold spikes of wild agave ….

plants and rubble seen through the regular grid pattern  of an iron mesh fence …

all made my fingers get twitchy for needle, thread and cloth …. what if, what if, what if?
