I've been at the seaside. Substantially cooler than London, but warm enough to sit on the beach and contemplate the big skies of East Anglia.
and do some stitching.
It was also a chance to revisit the Scallop, seen in sunshine this time
and to wonder at the interconnected threads of our lives, as I rediscovered a series of favourite book from early childhood " Orlando the Marmalade Cat" and realised that they were written and drawn in Aldeburgh. Somehow I missed the re-issuing of these when my own children were young, so I spent a happy hour in the terrific Aldeburgh bookshop looking at the illustrations and relating them to walks of the previous day.
