East or West – Wales is best!

29/11/2012 § 1 Comment

What a pretty little cottage – with an amazing weathervane!

No, don’t get excited, we haven’t decided to move (yet), but last weekend tugged at my heartstrings again as we returned to Wales.  The Harbourmaster Hotel in Aberaeron is a brilliant place to stay – right on the harbourside.  Imagine my excitement when we went up to the room and there was a wonderful Melin Tregwynt bed cover – in RED!!!  Oh complete joy!!

Although we were hardly there in daylight, I managed a couple of quick jaunts around the harbour and village with my camera in the early morning, and evening.  It had been raining and the river water, where it flowed into the harbour was thick with mud from the heavy rainfall up in the hills …

I love the coloured houses in this pretty seaside town, which every year in August hosts one of my favourite events – the Festival of Welsh Ponies & Cobs.

What beautiful colour combinations …

It was a busy weekend and lovely to see Dad.  We fitted in a trip to see relations in south Wales too.  Life is hectic at the moment – these short days make me feel that I have to complete everything outdoorsy in daylight and fitting it all in around my teaching job means that I’m under a bit of pressure.  Good long evenings to spend sewing though – and snuggling under those crochet blankets!

I haven’t forgotten the giveaway, which will be very soon – and I’ve got a new sewing-room toy (well several actually) to show you too.  Have a guess what they are – 4 different sizes, very reasonably priced and the results are yards and yards long and I’m having loads of fun thinking of ways to use what I’ve produced.

Go on – have a guess!

I’ll show and tell next time – maybe Saturday, if I have a moment or two spare.

Enjoy the rest of the week and the weekend – Winchester is hosting the Retro & Vintage market on Sunday and I’ll be there, all wrapped up against the freezing cold!

    I love the last picture – such beautiful colors on the homes. In the US, house colors are very subdued. Like yours better.
