The summer holidays are really here now and the weather is being good to us. 

We started with a trip to Pauline Burbridges studio…… not a lot new, few smaller pieces pinned to the wall with no proper edgings for £300…… 



Meanwhile back in the studio….. I finally attached the BSR for the first time.  Its going to take some getting used to….. I seem to be neater without it.


And a sneak preview of some new work coming along.  Yes its grey, don’t alter your monitor.

Yes I know, no colour.  What NO COLOUR!  Well actually its grey with a hint of purple…. of course 🙂


I am thoroughly enjoying having DS at home.  He is at a wonderful age.

Thursday we took a trip to Lindisfarne (Holy Island).  I have never seen it so busy!  Northumberland is becoming more popular I think.  Shush, should I tell you all how beautiful it is?……

Its billed as the “Secret Kingdom” and I’d very selfishly like to keep it that way please! 

Here we are at the top of the Castle.

Here’s the castle and in the centre of the picture on the horizon you can see Bamburgh Castle.

View from the castle.  Look at the number of people!

We stopped for lunch on Lindisfarne on our “secret beach”.  This is just 3 minutes drive from the village centre.  Can you see the sea in the distance?

Look at complete lack of other people – fantastic! 
Who needs to be abroad when England can be this beautiful with such beautiful clean and warm beaches.

    I won't tell if you don't! 😉 Beautiful photographs Helen. The fabric has some beautiful marks in it and the colour is wonderfully subtle.
