Weekend in Brighton

 Hello dear friends, hope you are all well .If you are in the UK I am guessing by now you've been relaxing in the evenings under one of your numerous blankets, perhaps you've lit the fireplace or turn the thermostat up .My two favourite seasons autumn and winter are back and I'm in heaven .I love blankets, wearing woolly knits ,layering , boots , gloves , scarves , hats .i guess that's why I love yarn. 


Over the bank holiday in August the Notting hill carnival takes place .I always go away I use to live on the doorstep of this event and we hate the crowds and the noise so we started to go away . We moved away from the area seven years now but the habit of our annual weekend away has remained . We decided to visit Brighton , we haven't been in years . 

I can't wait to take my grandson to visit Brighton the sights and smells stay with you , once you've visited a seaside town you never forget it .This was a grown up weekend but next time we will ride the carousel together and run amongst the pebbles .

                                                This reminds me of a row buttons 
                                   On closer examination it's a log of wood circled in metal

                                                            Wooden ducks 

In the arcades this was the slot machine that made me  lick my lips ,love hearts, Parma violets, refreshers , mmmm. I didn't win 

It is the law that when you go to the seaside you must have fish n chips 

                                                  A hot freshly fried sugared donut 
And a pot of prawns , don't you agree 

This bird flew at my shrimps ,I must tell you I screamed , hehe 

I love boats

                                                      Rusty metal I adore you

                                                            A metal chain stitch

                          The day ended with pillowy soft melt in your mouth candy floss 


  1. Sounds and look idyllic, yes it is the law to eat fish 'n chips at the seaside, my daughters tell me that all the time. (I actually live in a rural village by the sea). It is great fun with little ones so you will love taking your Grandson. Take care.

  2. I have always wanted to visit Brighton, although I am an ocean away it looks like a wonderful place.

  3. We were in Brighton about a month ago. Visited the Royal Pavilion - fantastic. I love fish n chips and my mouth is watering at the very thought of them. Glad you enjoyed your weekend. P x

  4. Looks like you had a great time. I love the autumn and winter too.

  5. Love you pictures, they really are a true day at the seaside. I just realised I have made so many of your designs! Jo x

  6. You certainly had a great time and most definitely you can't go to the seaside and not have fish and chips (or slot machines!) Glad you had fun.

  7. I've only been to Brighton the one time for one day but I remember it well. There was a Punch and Jody show on the boardwalk that was the perfect finishing touch.
