... it was beautiful yesterday morning and it enticed me out in my pj's to take this. It was worth the chill but it was best on top of the shed so took a bit of getting to.

arthog falls through the branches

Just back from a few days in wales, the local waterfalls were really in full flow even though there doesn't seem to have been that much rain.

This gave me a good chance to try and capture them.

I did lots more hand quilting and thinking about the christmas makes I have started.

dunstanborough castle gate

I'm still chugging through my holiday photos, this one had a really ugly fence in front of it so I've taken that out and think you can see the full beauty of it now. I'm not sure if the National Trust try to ruin things on purpose.

Binding, binding, binding .....

.... but I am on the last side.

Note to self, remember to sew in the label now so that the top row of stitches don't show.
