It is an area that I know well as I spent my teens near here when it was a USAF base and planes used to take off and land all day and made a huge amount of noise!! Nowadays it is quiet village with wind turbines on the old airfield.
It was a bitterly cold day as I wandered around the churchyard -
and saw vistas of snowdrops -
and other Spring flowers -
|Note the plaque at the bottom of the tower|
and then I went into the church porch and couldn't resist these photos -
|A beautiful flower arrangement|
The church was packed with different stalls where I could have bought snowdrops 'in the green' which is the best way to plant them, the cake stall and of course I could have bought a cup of coffee. I didn't do any of these, but I did buy some raffle tickets and some very useful small wooden bowls that are now in The Studio.
I came home and immediately started hemming the binding on my Linus quilt ready for Wednesday evening and looked at my Christmas Challenge (see last post) and unpicked almost everything I had done as it was awful!!!!! This then resulted in a short trip to Poppy Patch to get some more background fabric as the fat quarter I had been given had run out! After some bad language I am now back on course but have run out of wadding, but I am going to a show later this week so will get it there.
I started my Harmony Blanket at crochet group that has 126 Granny Squares. I have made 10, so some way to go, but I am enjoying it.
