I heart this

twinkle heart ornament

The hearts are coming out all over the blogosphere. i love hearts just as much as christmas decorations. This is one of my favourites that i made for a lady on blog a few years ago, it was made using the lovely high quality vintage cotton from the feather eiderdowns of the 1930’ with the lovely delicate floral hues that were so popular at that time. I have made quite a few in the past…. we do all love making our hearts… am thinking maybe a big heart next.

Happy Heart making

Snow Away !!


Winter Wonderland – ok we have had lots of fun,  now will you please go so that we can get on with our life. :-)

It didn’t help that i happened to be travelling home in the worst snowfall in 30 years.  My friend and i had been visiting the historic town of Bath and the snow fall was so bad we had to abandon the car and walk back to the nearest town, so eerie walking through  deserted streets looking for a place to stay … all the pubs were like the Marie Celeste – the poor landlords making no money that night. The places to be where it was all happening were the hotels … and the church halls – the hotels were all booked up with fellow travellers …  we finally got a room on the edge of the town  Picture 1659We were so grateful to get a room and the view from our bedroom was pure picture postcard.

However we still had to get home the roads were  impassable – so headed off to get a train.Picture 1661

Was it ever going to come,  we managed to catch one of the few trains going our way –  there was a lot of hold ups and at one point we hit a tree but  all was ok and  we continued on with the journey, there were some great views
