This is my last page this month for Erika's theme of ......
The page began life with a a little shading and a stencil of the girls , off for a night out together. .
In fact all the background is a variety of stencils and distress ink colours.
I used water colours for the girls dresses.
The second part of my post is to visit with friends over at
where we are always made to feel very welcome with a drinks related post
We had a trip out last week to North Shields, a fishing port near the mouth of the River Tyne before it flows into the North Sea.
Tea day friends will know we have been here before as is our favourite place for Fish and Chips
Today however, was to have a close look at the new sculpture called
that has been placed as a memorial to the Lost Fishermen who sailed from the port and sadly never returned
There is a piece here that I found on the internet that relates to the work involved in its making. It also explains the legend of Fiddlers Green.
He sits and gazes out to sea in the first photo, the second is the view out to sea at Tynemouth.
The light kept changing as I waited for folk to move away, but I have to say I was thinking that all the colour changes were amazing and I'm sure through time as he gets weathered, the metal will go on changing colour. The sculpture has only been in position since September 2017.
Yes, we did have our lunch out, came home later that afternoon,
a little windblown and ready to get our feet up and have a cuppa....
Tea as always was my choice, with a couple of chocolate ginger cookies.
A good end to a good day out.
Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are all most welcome here.
