Holmsey visits Jenny!
09.08.2015 - 22.08.2015
Holmsey has now left Heswall and is now on his way to Denmark.
He had a lovely time here although the weather could have been better.
Heswall is a small town on the Wirral peninsular which is between the River Dee, which separates us from North Wales, and the River Mersey which separates us from Liverpool. On the highest point you can see across to Wales and the Snowdon range and the other way, across to Liverpool and in the distance Blackpool tower and the Lake District. Its a great place to live, many well knowns from the world of football, live in and around Heswall.
Holmsey went for a little trip further up the coast to have one of Parkgate's famous icecreams and had lunch there too. Parkgate was where Nelson's famous mistress Lady Hamilton, was from!
I have attached some photos of around the area and of my finished piece. It was stitched on 16 ct Zweigart platinum.
I love being part of this journey.
