Beautiful week away in Welburn

Hello, We have just got back home from a lovely week away in Welburn, North Yorkshire.  We stayed in the most amazing cottage which had a massive garden.   The weather was really a mixed bag all week, some very hot days and some very rainy days.  So nice to have some lazy days with the family. Well, as lazy as they can be with two boys, my youngest is seven and he has severe autism but he coped extremely well with staying somewhere new.

Peaceful crochet time - I am currently working on two projects. A Christmas blanket which is nearly finished. It was supposed to be finished for last Christmas :-) but it has taken me a while.  The pattern had some trickier parts, like a swirly granny square.  As I was staying with Mam it was an ideal time to have her help me.

Leaf and Loaf bakery -  If you ever visit Welburn I would highly recommend Leaf and Loaf bakery. Such a lovely range of fresh bread and cakes which we visited everyday.  The date and walnut loaf was so amazing!

Yorkshire Lavender - We didn't have many trips out during the week but thought we would try the Yorkshire Lavender farm.  We really enjoyed the beautiful views, a nice play area and we also had some lunch in the cafe there.

Tweedy Dk - Look out for new wool coming into stock this week.  Very excited to try these super new Stylecraft Tweedy yarns.  These will be available in 100 gram balls and it is a mixture of 74% Premium Acrylic and 26% Cotton.

Well, that is one week of the summer holidays done :-)
