March is quite over and it's been a strange month, full of ups and downs and i chose to keep in mind only the things that lightened it: the visit of a dear friend i hadn't seen for almost three years, and a nice trip in Brittany last week during a warm and sunny day with another friend.
This is the bay of  Cancale and in general one can see the mount Saint-Michel from there but this day there was a light fog so, no view of the mount alas.

This  little town is especially known for producing oysters and everywhere around Cancale, one can buy the famous oysters  stored by the producers in big warehouses.

But instead of going to Cancale that we already visited several times, we headed toward Port Mer, a lovely village close to Cancale and this was a pure delight!The beach is small and circled with big rocks, typical from Brittany.

The light fog made the seascape magical!!

Mimosa blooming , love their delicious scent!!

Because of the fog, it was difficult to know where the sea ended and where the sky began.

With pine trees everywhere, rocks and such sun, we could have been on  the south coast of France when we were less than two hours from our place in Normandy!This day was definitely a beautiful parenthesis.

On the creative front, not much happened this month, just some sewing. One day, i felt the urge  to sew a labyrinth in a textile book i began some months ago and it took a moment before i understood why this urge: because of difficult choices i felt as if i was at a crossroads and couldn't choose which way i would take. Sewing didn't bring the answer but was soothing and i am grateful for that.Looking at the picture now, i realize that the two scraps of fabric i added probably represent the obstacles i have to face, but when i  saw them, i didn't know why i absolutely wanted to add them.

I will end this post with small hearts i saw last month , a small project i had in mind for a while; i needed the hearts to hang on branches i painted in white and hanged on a wall. I acknowledge i do like the result. For the hearts i used  my favorite piece of white bed sheet and stamped on it with acrylic paint.

I wish you peace wherever you are and i will let you with this quote from Louise Bourgeois:
"The act of sewing is a process of emotional repair". So true!
Be well friends!

Your photos, especially of the boat in the mist, are so so beautiful- with a Japanese aesthetic. Your sewing project too, with a sashiko/boro vibe. The tender beauty you bring to all you do.
