I haven't slept very well this week and this morning could happily go back to bed and zzzzzzzzzzz a bit longer, but we have a Militaria Fair in the offing, so have to go and get the necessary stock from the Unit.
I treated myself to this magazine in the week. I cannot remember the last time I bought a X-stitch magazine, but I am still enjoying my return to it after Maria's prompting (her blog is Dotty's daughter). That blackwork Hare is beautiful, and the 3D cottage lovely. I want to make a Christmas gift for a friend, but am torn between the cover project - wild flowers on black Aida - and this:
I just love the jade green used in this for the outlined work outside the frame. The colour looks sludgier here but it is a bright jade in real life. This scene really appealed to me and would make a nice evening project through the spring and summer months. What's the betting I don't have half the colours needed? Always the way when you start a new project.
Some of the frogspawn in our main pond. There's lots more. I hope the tadpoles survive this year - they all died of some virus in 2015.
A rather blurred photo of snow on the Brecon Beacons yesterday, taken from the car.
The southern flanks of Hay Bluff. We went to auction in Brecon, and had 3 hours between lots we were interested in so went to Hay-on-Wye for lunch and a chat with an antiques friend of ours.
Have a lovely weekend.
