Today is my mum's birthday and as a treat we have had a day out. Mum, my sister and me had a visit round a large Antiques centre where I found these two lovely wooden spools of thread. As you can see they are the perfect shape. Mum's passion is cats and she had a lovely collectors plate with cats on it. My sister needs to win the lottery to buy all that she has seen today. Mick went to watch the rugby.
It is sheer pleasure working on these little blocks. Progress so far - 30 made.
We are staying in The Staffordshire Moorlands while we visit our families and this is the view. It is absolutely beautiful here, very rugged and COLD. Luckily the accommodation is fantastic and warm and snug inside.
Just love this tree on the edge of the pond.
How about this for an art form? This area has many miles of drystone walls. This one is newly built and the colours of the stone is still fresh and beautiful Millstone Grit.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
