Hello again to a nearly, but not quite, festive WOYWWI'm posting early with a partly prepped post as I only have limited internet access at the moment and have to hurry in the 20 minutes time allowed here.
My desk this week is the dining table of the appartment where we are staying in Devon as, anticipating bad weather, I brought penty of crafting with me to keep me occupied. The days are short and it is difficult to travel far in such extreme weather.
First evening I made two stocking for the Teeny Brighton Belles and posted them yesterday and this one below I made last week for my tiny German Gem.
Hopefully, tomorrow we will get to the nearby, lovely little town, of Holsworthy to visit their Christmas Farmers Market and Craft Market.
Here are the spotty ones for the Brighton Belles which I made here in Devon and I bet I'm the only person staying here who brought a sewing machine!
I brought plenty of yarn with me to knit.
and I finished off this scarf
So all in all despite the most awful weather of rain, gales and a good bit of non-stick snow we are enjoying the lovely country club where we are staying and the fabulous Devon food.
However, every shop sells Cornish pasties and they are delicious! These below are gigantic.
It has been a long journey to get here and not be able to do too much due to the weather but it's a chance to chill out before Christmas.
The nearby river is in full spate and has swollen so much that it flooded over into the adjoining fields.
Here's the thatched reception building of the country club where we are staying.
The view from our window and the stream runs along the other side of the fence.
some of the neighbours wandering around the grounds!!
Each week we open our desks for public view after the idea by Julia of stamping ground took off into a major opportunity for the world to have a massive snoop around the crafting spaces of over 100 crafting spaces. Pop over and join the fun!
Don't know if I'll get to visit anyone this week as the internet connection is off and on and I have to pay for limited time so have fun and I'll have a catch up when I get home in a couple of days.
