Brrrr part 2 and some knitting

I promise this is the last Brrrr - but it was such an amazing morning i nipped out with my camera!

it was quite eerie as the horses just loomed (is that right?) out of the fog and frost

On closer inspection they were covered in frost - on their whiskers, tails, manes!

this pic doesn't do it justice but you get my drift!

The garden looked amazing - shame the pics didn't!

Enough of the cold now!

I have decided to stop just looking at all my lovely craft books, and they are lovely, and to actually get a move on!

so - 1 pair of wristwarmers!

Got some lovely yarn to add to my stripey wrap - which, if i had got a move on, i could now be wearing!!

Have started on some applique and stitchery pics - which my lovely friend Sarah sells in her shop (sometimes!)

the above is a work in progress - its going to be a birth stitchery - have just outlined it at the moment!

So now feel justified in having a large cuppa and a toasted tea cake and a quick browse, just a very quick one, at some fabrics which happen to be in a sale!

oh, by the way, my next post will be my 50th so i will be having a giveaway!

The frost really was beautiful this morning. I went for a long walk with my friend but I'm glad to be back in the warm! I love the colours in your stripey wrap. It looks so warm and cosy. Your post also reminded me I started a pair of wristwarmers before Christmas but I've forgetten where I've left them!

The trees were amazing this morning, all looked like they had had sugar shaken on them - so pretty. Bluddy hard work to scrape all the ice off the car though! I hope it warms up again soon.

Your makes are gorgeous. Keep up the good work. x

I'm cold just looking at those pics! My children would LOVE to live where you live, instead of across the lake from bustling Seattle, WA. so I like to share with them your posts about the horses. My daughters fell in love with your wrist warmers, they think that is the most brilliant invention ever! Maybe we can strike a deal! LOL

The frost was not quite to white this morning in Cornwall this morning. You have a lovely garden, I have a postage stamp! But we are going to try and make it into a lovely postage stamp this year. Lovely wool, I am using sime Rowan wool at the moment too.

Your photos capture these cold and frosty mornings perfectly! I am so very very glad I'm not a horse...brrrrr!

Your wristwarmers and stripey wrap are gorgeous and the applique is such a beautiful keepsake. Lovely post Maria :-)

Oh my how cold it looks over there. Its hovering in the 34.c - 38.c. I cant imagine a frost at the moment. Thats when the cows start calving. Not looking forward to that. Rug up and keep warm.

Gosh you've been busy! You've done loads of craftiness!!!

Looks freezing though! Maybe you should be knitting leg warmers and scarves for the horses?!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I see you are in lovely England. I was born and educated there so those pictures of your horses and the countryside were so lovely to see! LOve those wrist warmers! Nice that your fingers can be free for holding cups of tea etc!
