I thought it would snow in the night, and indeed, when I got up at 6.30, there was a sprinkling of snow on the ground (more than last time) and it was snowing steadily. It carried on snowing until after lunch but wasn't settling on the lane or the paths - well, what did settle soon melted. This was the view across the top of the yard and the farm buildings about 8 a.m.
Around lunchtime I had a walk up the hill and took a few photos - as you can see, some fields seem warmer than others! These are the fields above Dyffryn, further up the valley.
I kept myself busy whilst listening to the Archers Omnibus by recovering this little 1960s lidded box which had got rather grubby. I painted it a couple of days ago and today I took the old fabric off and replaced it with some I got in an array from offcuts from the Curtain shop near Lidl. This was perhaps originally a sewing box.
I stuck with the grey/black/white theme and used this fabric, with a black and white ribbon which only just covered the edges of everything I wanted to cover (5m) - I had just an inch left! All neatly glued in place with Copydex. It will either go to the next Fair we do or else go to the Unit.
The 4 fabrics I chose - £10 worth in total. The lovely grey silky looking fabric had been a sample made up into a little curtain so it may just end up in the revamped shower room. Keith has been tiling in there today and it is going to look lovely when it's done.
Not much else in the way of news, except I have nearly finished Rose Tremain's "Trespass" which I can recommend.
