Second Week,,,

It was my second week off work last week,,, and I have only just finished knitting a hat for DH. No crafting was done as DH and I went to Wales for five days.
We stayed in Caernarfon Premier Inn,,,, but stopped of at Chepstow and Raglan Castles on the way.

Day 2 was to be a busy day,,,

View from the highest tower at Caernarfon


The clock tower at Portmeirion
It was a long day,,, a lot of driving by DH,,,
Day 3,,,,,
Beaumaris Castle
And a nice long look around Anglesey,,,,,,,,,,

Day 4,,,,,,was another busy day,,
Conwy Castle

Plas Mawr
Conwy Castle from Plas Mawr
Plas Mawr is the oldest Elizabethan house in the UK.

I took loads of pictures,, too many to put on here. I did venture up all the towers of the castles,,,,
Rhuddlan Castle
That was the last of the castles,,, then we had a quick look at Llandudno,,, we got there quite late in the day and I didn't take any pictures.
Day 5 was travelling home day,,,,we stopped off at a cafe that sold little wooden moving 'toys',,,

I loved this guitar man,,,,,                                                               

ps, thank you for your lovely comments.

New Camera,,and a Quilt Show

A few weeks back it was my DHs' birthday,,, so he bought me a present. A lovely little camera that I had been looking at lately! So,, what do you do when you get a new camera,,, you have to take pictures,, a lot of them!

It has several 'frames' for that 'special' shot,, and the zoom is brilliant. The picture of my grandson was on a shelf 10 feet away.

All the above pictures were taken at Burnham-On-Sea.

Last Sunday I went to a small quilt show held by the Weston Quilters, in Weston-Super-Mare. I say small, but there was over 100 quilts on show.
Coffee and Cupcakes by Marth Orr

Out Of The Blue by Judith Hubbard
Snow Family by Jenny Lester
 There were five trade stands at this litte show, two of my favourites,,,Farne Designs and White Cottage Country Crafts,,the creators of the Batik Firecracker quilt.
 And a little treat for me. WHSmiths have different magazines in their stores. The Weston store had quite a few that I don't see in my local one.
I am on holiday from work for two weeks,,,, so hopefully time for creations!!!
