Windermere, Wool, Wellies & Watermill

When we visited Windermere we discovered a new little haven for sewers and knitters "Sew Much Fun". A shop and studio with workshops situated just on the way up to the railway station.
The range of fabrics was so different with many designs I had never before seen.
Jane was so lovely, really friendly and helpful.
I loved the way the place was laid out, it was so inspiring for beginners and experienced stitchers alike.
Of course I couldn't resist buying some fat quarters!
There's a great deal to see in this tiny cabin so if you are in Windermere, make sure you pop in and say "Hello" to Jane.
I loved this shop's Christmas wellies decorating the pavement. 
As it was a rainy day we decided to have an early dinner in a cosy pub and remembered this one from previous visits. The Watermill Inn & Brewery in the tiny village of Ings, just a couple of miles away from Windermere.
The food was superb and despite them having two large parties in for Christmas meals we were served quite swiftly by the friendly staff. I'd strongly recommend it!
