Hello again, the picture above shows some of the rather lovely gifts sent to me as part of the Advent Swap by Rachael at http://www.sewrayme.co.uk/ , please do have a look at her website and look at the wonderful things she is making. Thank you very much Rachel, I hope that you liked the things that I sent you. Oh yes there was chocolate in the parcel but it didnt last long enough to be photographed !
Today was a glorious start to the year with blue skies and the sun was shining, we headed out just before lunch to blow the Christmas cobwebs away and have a walk. We went to Beamish Museum where they were still decorated for christmas. How I would love to live in these houses, I could just spend all day tucked up beside the fire in the rocking chair.
I just love how these rugs are made from fabric scraps, I have all of the original tools to make these that belonged to my Great Grandmother and hope that one day I will be able to find the time to make on of my very own.
Perhaps it was a good thing that the fire was not lit or I might have pulled up a chair, it was very cold.
There were checstnuts in the bowl on the table.
The parlour was all set out in its very finest.
I am enjoying getting back to blogging and hope that I can keep it up. I have some crochet projects to show you when I post next.
