A Blog in Pictures: Appreciating my local picturesque Scenery

A Blog in Pictures: Appreciating my local picturesque Scenery.

Sometimes we forget to appreciate what is on our doorstep, with the longer lighter nights of summer it is time to get out more and enjoy our local surroundings and that is exactly what I did.  The following collection of photographs are all taken on my 3G iphone, they capture my local rural picturesque scenery that I appreciate here in North East Lincolnshire.

Its all about the cross stitch

This month in my Buy association article I’ve written an article all about the cross stitch trend see link here for the full article http://tiny.cc/xbj8c

Its made a huge comeback and it will be huge this summer. Last weekend I was a guest on BBC Radio Humberside (philpot files) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p001d7r3

Helen Philpot and I chatted about the latest trend, and we both agreed you either love it or loathe it.

More about  Helen philpot here http://helenphilpot.co.uk/

On Tuesday I was invited as a Helens guest to ladies who lunch Pro6  at Merciers on Seaview Street in Cleethorpes, and low and behold right there in the restaurant on display was a beautiful cross stitch picture, beautifully done by the owners Nana Connie Mercier.
