It’s the first of December – like you needed me to tell you that!
I was away for the weekend with my mother and her guild of the ICA and I had great fun. We were doing a weekend course in hand stitched Christmas decorations. We headed off on Friday and came back yesterday after dinner. I have to say it was great and you came home with something to show for it!
This is the wall hanging that we did, it is also a introduction to patchwork.
I am having visions of this house getting overrun with fabric as I have taken a shine to this.
While we were away we went for a walk on Saturday morning after breakfast and before class and I happened to have my camera with me. So as we were coming up to the top of the road this is what appeared before us.
It really was lovely. However this morning December seems to have kicked in with the weather. As I type I have the heating on and the kettle is boiling for a cuppa ’cause when I got up this morning and looked out the window this is what greeted me:
If I’m being honest this is the kind of weather that I’d like to see on Christmas day – wake up and it’s all white and then forget about it as it gradually goes – yes I’d love snow but that really can cause havoc so for safety I’ll sacrifice my dreams for a heavy frost 😛
Mind you even with that frost it can be dangerous – I’m expecting my mother over to me this morning as we are going to get an artificial Christmas tree for me (I think with cats in the house it’s the wisest choice) – anyway mam is coming over but I’ve a feeling that the roads will be slippery so I hope she will be alright getting over.
While I’m waiting for her to arrive I think I’ll hunt out my advent calanders and start opening windows!
