Of course we went for walks and watched seals and birds. Besides the photos that I have already posted, I could present many more. So one each for birds and seals only.
We collected tons of sea glass. The weight of which in total we only realized when we were packing our bags...
|This is only a fraction of what we found!|
But you can't do that all day, and when an island is only ca. 3 km on its outskirts you appreciate to have something else to do besides walking.
Never once touched the vocabulary cards for Spanish. But did some spinning, more knitting, and a bit of hand stitching.
During the week I finished one pair of socks that had been started before my departure, and the jacket from handspun yarn that I had started to knit in March. I had brought my spinning wheel, did some spinning on a new project, and also spun a few fibers from the sheep that are about on the island, which we had collected from the fences.
At the same time I started stitching on a scrappy project of Paper Piecing, continued on the A Scrap a Day. It was a time of finishing up, and getting oriented towards something new. A bit like in real life, because in the fall quite a few things are going to change for me, and for my family. And probably for my art, but of course I do hope that that won't disappear entirely despite the fact that my time allowance will be much more limited then.
