In October 2015 I was lucky enough to visit New England for three weeks. In New Hampshire I like to visit a store called www.keepsakequilting.com. It is filled with thousands of bolts of material all set out beautifully and interspersed with quilts and other lovely things to inspire you to make something lovely. To be honest it's mind blowing and way too much to take in on one visit! Luckily we don't stay far away so at least three or four visits are made on each trip I take to New England, which is such a chore!!!!
The first fall of snow is not only an event but it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up to find yourself in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment, then where is it to be found?
Just a quick blog tonight as I am making sure my toboggan is all ready to go in the morning!Snow at last, I'm so excited.
I've been busy working and decorating my Mum's apartment, therefore blogging has taken a bit of a back seat! I have decided that I hate sanding doors, but unfortunately I have quite a few in my own house that need doing, so I will have to hold onto that thought for a while.
In Stowe they have kept the old village school house for everyone to see, it is now situated beside the library. It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie!
Is the bottom half of Hampshire the only place without snow? I'm not impressed! Today we went to Stockbridge, it was lovely, it was cold, they had amazing dogs made from old rope! Add's a whole new meaning to the saying doesn't it!
Quite a few of you have asked me for the cake recipe in mondays blog, called Spiced Apple Cake. As you know we are all going to be snowed in this weekend (I wish!) so you all need to bake one for emergency supplies, or two or three! Obviously if it doesn't snow you can eat all of the cake as a kind of conciliation prize!
