Back from our week's break in North Wales to the usual pile of ironing - well sod that for a game of soldiers, it won't run away, unfortunately.
Had a brilliant, if a bit windy, week in a beautiful cottage with fantastic views down the Conwy river valley.
One of the highlights of the week had to be Sunday when we drove the mile into Conwy for a country fair, no craft stuff unfortunately but there was a stand by the North Wales Owl rescue and this beauty.
Isn't she gorgeous?
Sorrel loved the beach at Penmaenmawr just couldn't make her mind up where to dig first. It was only when I was downloading the photos yesterday that I noticed the shape she had made in the roughened sand. Looks like an emu to me - what a talented doggy.
Called at Abakhan craft/fabric outlet on the way home for some lace and fabric flower trim and they had demonstrations in the craft building. Sarah Lawrence of Crafty Notions was there as was a lady doing silk painting. She showed me how to colour silk in the microwave (not seen this done before) and had some stunning cards so guess what I bought - watch this space.
