This week I have seen loads of Butterflies, even the getting rare now days small Tortoiseshell, with many Peacocks and several Painted Ladies, also comma's and Gatekeepers, we have three Budleias in the garden so that might be the reason they just love them. Its nice to see them fluttering about we got loads of Small whites too, God help my Lettuce though.

Good Day

Had a great day today with a small disappointment went to a quilt shop and got the normal handful of fabric and some fab little house buttons perfect for my embroidery got lady birds too very small ones but couldn't get a Crazy Quilt book, Gonna have to buy on line I think, Shops don't seem to stock it seems still good outing as they have a fudge shop at the craft place so got a bag of that too and a sugar mouse

Snow came to nothing

We had snow recently but nothing like the snow the south got, we had a couple of days last week where it settled but only a cm or so, it snowed in the night a few times but was gone by the morning. It was not here long enough to take a photo. But they do say the worst is over now. Good for my Coventry friend who had loads of it. I would have liked photo's as they inspire me in my work.
