า by hook

way back in December 
an invitation to take part in a 
'hook along' from this lovely lady
a crochet mood blanket 
each colour reflecting your day
beginning in January
I decided to make a square blanket
instead of the usual smaller granny squares joined together 
each colour a day
different stitches
rust the colour of iron under the Pier
blue sky daydreaming
pale pink the colour of cheeks in the rain
I might have to start another!

⩎⩏ a break in the clouds

it has rained every single day in January
 but on Sunday the sky was big
so we drove to Bradwell-on-Sea
 St Peter on the Wall is the 19th oldest chapel in England
the cockle spit beyond was alive with winter birds
the next day we checked the tides
and walked under Southend Pier
the longest pleasure pier in the world
it's had a rough time in it's life
creaking but still standing
