We crafters do suffer for our hobby! Sitting still stitching, hooking and stamping in this freezing weather is not easy, especially when hands are cold and you need to make tiny stitches. This morning my hands and feet have been like blocks of ice and I think I must get my hot water bottle down from the bedroom and refill it to warm my hands.
With St Dwynwen's Day just a week away I managed to create some more felt brooches for my Folksy shop this week. I found this lovely celtic style die last weekend and decided it was perfect to present my brooches for our Welsh lovers' day on 25th January. I added some suitable Welsh wording with wooden peg alphabet stamps - rather time consuming but the font was just right. If you'd like to see more you can find them here in my shop.
Coming home over the mountain this afternoon we saw several fields where people were sledging. While it's nice to see the kids enjoying the snow, I'm always dismayed to see the aftermath once the snow has melted...... I just hate to see broken sledges left behind, litter and even holes in fences and hedges. No wonder farmers will hit back by spreading manure on popular fields
