I followed the instructions Vicki gave, just because her comment came first. I will also try out Quiltin' Granny's advice too when I have this one completed as I would like. Then I can compare the two methods.
This is the original painting of Dane's Dyke which I did in watercolors. Once again I must confess to having intensified its colors (perhaps a bit too much) as my water colors come up so faded on the computer. The Dyke is said to have been dug by the Vikings, or Danes, about 800 AD in order to cut off the headland and make it an island and thus easier to defend. However, some say it goes back much further than the Danes.
Today it has some beautiful shady trails and is an ideal spot to go bird-watching. The trench is open to the sea at one end as you see here. At the other end, the diggers met their match in the 400 foot high chalk cliffs which dominate the north side of Flamborough and Bempton. It is officially called 'earthworks' I think and is about two miles in length. There is much more on the web about this beautiful area
My husband says he misses the cliffs and caves of the previous banner and so do I . But maybe I can now change my banner with other Flamborough pictures at a later point.
Have to get ready for ABC Wednesday now, and I may be a little later than usual in posting.
