Hello from Wensleydale.

 Hello from Wensleydale.
 Looks lovely doesn't it? Hmm, this was before it snowed, lol.
 I'm not going to show you pictures of the snow, it's not pleasant. No, it's cold and icy and smelly in my opinion. Smelly pants that's what I think to the snow.
Sneaky dog and I know what to do when it snows.
Cosy up and reach for the knitting basket. A couple of fat roses waiting to adorn one of my chunky tea cosies. Talking of chunky tea cosies... 
Thank you all for your best wishes for my Christmas craft fair, it went really well. In fact I had to dash and take this piccy for you as I'd already sold 3 of my larger items and I wanted you to see it before anything else went.
The atmosphere was fab and the staff at the Dales Countryside Museum were very helpful and most importantly kept us supplied with tea all day. I met some lovely people and even came away with a commission or two. Best of all I got to spend the day chatting with my lovely friend Anne who had the stall next to me. Sorry for the lack of photos, too much going on.
Unfortunately these two little bunnies didn't sell on the day. I had to bring them home with me, poo! I thought they might have found somewhere warm and snuggly to live, but sad. So I've popped them into my Etsy shop in case anyone has room to fill in a loved ones stocking!
Time to go. Lots to do. A new felt painting underway. The contents of the loft to empty and sort. The contents of the loft to repack before number 1 comes home from uni with the contents of his digs. As well as fitting in an overnight visit to my parents. It's going to be a busy week.
Till next time, whenever that is.
love Fi x

We were up in Hawes the other afternoon and I agree with you, there is only one word to describe the weather - disgusting.

Snow is only nice to look at but I've not thought of it being smelly! Lol

Your craft stall looked lovely, I'm sure your bunnies will soon be hopping off to new homes.
Looking forward to seeing your new felt picture.

Hi Fiona thanks for your card - I can't find your address on it doesn't recognise your name or you are ex-directory! I had your card with me when I came to Hawes last week! and now don't know where to send it. Did you get my email? Is the hare felt another one on your display table to the one you did for a commission it looks smaller?

Hi Fi - hope you got it all done and that you have a lovely relaxing Christmas. xCathy
