Brrrr! Here in North Yorkshire we've had some very wintry weather today.
It's quite refreshing actually to have snowy wintry weather in December. Maybe there is really a chance that we might have snow on Christmas Day this year! I took my camera with me on my walk to work this morning. Watch out for snow flakes, it was snowing all the way! Are you ready? Get your wellies on and your hat and gloves. Mind you don't slip!
The snow plough had just cleared the road.
Behind the houses you can usually see hills, too much snow today though.
The Swaledale sheep are well equiped for the snow.
Nearly there. Our destination is through the trees.
When I got home from work the children had brought the Christmas decorations down from the attic. (No school today, the school bus couldn't get through the snow) And it appears to be my job every year to undo all the branched on the tree, (yawn!) and wrap the lights around,(yawn!) then the children decorate it (much excitement!).
Do you remember Pippa dolls from the 70's?
She makes a perfect homemade fairy for the top of our tree.
The Christmas tree skirt. I made this from a Bucilla felt kit back in 2003, it took me about two and a half years!
There are hudreds of tiny felt pieces decorated with sequins and beads.
Rudolph, was also a Bucilla kit, I just couldn't resist him. He looks so cheerful on the kitchen door. I've got a couple more kits stashed away somewhere... unfinished. One day.
A quick update on child #1. His arm is healing well now, no more surgery needed. Just the plaster cast for a few weeks. They've even chopped a bit off. (the cast, not his arm) So it's back to school, well it will be when the bus can get through!
till next time, take care. Fi x
