A Whole Lotta Rocks and a Grateful Heart

Two days at a house on a beach
soaking up the sounds and rhythm of the waves

Walking barefoot in sand and water

 Marvelling at Mother Nature's artwork

Finding lines of stitch and....

....weathered holes

Marvelling at grey on grey textures

Discovering two rocks so different from the rest

Wondering why barnacles have started to grow on seaweed

Imagining the waves on stormy nights
carving their images on smooth rocks and ....

....pounding down to create seams and crevices

Thank you to Diane and Harold who gifted me this time
thank you to the golden who sat by my side and wanted so much to be petted.

Thank you to so many of you who loved the Rusty Pups
You raised us up with your beautiful words of sympathy.
And thank you Miranda for your beautiful rusty gifts
I will indeed wear them and think of my pups.


  1. I hope you didn't try to take any of those big rocks home! They are beautiful.

  2. So many wonderful rocks. And friends to offer comfort.

  3. Enjoy your sojourn by the sea. Love those rocks.

  4. i would have wanted to make crayon rubbings on some of those, and then probably got the paper all wet by a wave wanting to help.

  5. Looks like a wonderful place to help in some small way to heal a wounded heart. So much inspiration for creativity in those surroundings.

  6. Beautiful pictures - there is nothing so calming as the sound of water. xx

  7. Those magnificent rocks have witnessed many things, yet they go on and will your love and memories of the Rusty Pups.

  8. I have been thinking about you and your Rusty pups. Looks like a nice place to help you save your memories and heal.

  9. it's so silly, I am crying and I didn't even know your Rusty pups - how lucky they were to be welcomed into such a caring home.

  10. Visited your lovely blog today for the first time, Penny - I would like to say thank you for taking the time to record your wonderful textile journey.

  11. Rocks with stitches, thank you for that visual
    memory! Take good care while healing.
