Against the Odds ~ Photo Challenge 

This photo was taken on a beach in Northern France back in September. We’d spent ages laying out leftover baguette and crisps for the gulls who swooped overhead, until finally I snapped this ~ just on my phone. We’d begun tossing pieces of bread up in the air to tempt/taunt the birds into coming nearer. I find the expression  on the face of the gull in the background equally delightful.

  1. Wow! That’s fabulous!! I’d have had to have a brolly up being so close to those seagulls! 🙂

Sunday sewing ~ just printed + cut out my first @sewoverit #poppyplaysuit Hoping to make a wearable muslin with this cotton print from @fabworksmillshop last year. Not sure if it'll have enough drape. .
