After watching the Oyster catchers down by the sea, I decided to make my own to remind me of the day. This one is from a pattern in Tone Finnanger's book 'Sew Sunny Homestyle' , put in a pottery jar with a little worm on its side, then filled with gravel and shells. The oyster catcher's beak and legs are made from thin dowelling and painted pink.
'What a difference a day makes', or so the old refrain in the song goes. Even though we know there are subtle changes from moment to moment. But here I'm thinking about the extraordinary weather this week which has wet windy storms with blustery sand storm and that orange sun and then more rain, some say from Hurricane Ophelia that has so badly his Ireland. But yesterday a break in the clouds and blue sky and an unusually warm autumn morning. After a busy start I just had to take a brief walk along the beach and the prom and take a few sunny pics. As oystercatchers were on Rossal Beach, the sun had brought the fishermen out and people and dogs just making the most of a fine warm day.

And then the clouds started rolling and the blue, turned to grey again. . .make the most of every moment X
