A Birthday Treat

We are back in Wales for the weekend. It is my birthday tomorrow and this is my birthday treat from Neil, a much needed rest. Things are going to be a little bit hectic for the next few weeks Steph gets married four weeks today and she is getting a little bit stressed and panicky, so am I. I still need to make her wrap, I know it won't take long it's just a case of knuckling down and getting on with it.

We arrived Thursday afternoon and were greeted with lots of the white stuff.


We hadn't had much snow at home and the roads were clear and free of traffic all the way here so this was a bit of a surprise. It does look lovely.

This photo was taken looking through one end of the verandah, it could be an Xmas card.

Some interesting texture, frost covered weeds.


These cobwebs are beautiful, especially with the sun shining through.






This is a view looking down on the village.


And this is the next lodge down from us there are five altogether so it is very quiet up here. Even the sheep aren't making a lot of noise.


One hungry pheasant, so hungry in fact that when I went out side he didn't fly away just carried on eating. In the distance I could hear guns going off.




I did bring some sewing with me. More hexagons to make some more pincushions and maybe needle cases.



I hope you are enjoying the snow and keeping warm.

Belated Happy Birthday Angela! Wales looks fabulous in the snow - that's how it's meant to be, not grey and slushy. Hope you had a brilliant weekend. Now get on with the wrap - and your homework!
