Stitching, stitching and snow

Needlecraft Haven hosted a superb Spring Exchange - so many fabulous gifts - thank you to everyone who took part - don't forget to sign up for the Summer Exchange. If you're not a member of Needlecraft Haven just apply for membership - it's a fabulous forum full of friendly crafters.

We went to the caravan for a few days this week - DH and I needed a break and DD needed a rest. She's had a difficult few weeks with parting from her BF of over 2 years, not really eating or sleeping, lots of work for college and her volunteering work. She had lotsof rest, lots of food and lots of relaxing time. It is a magical place.
It was very cold though; the snow didn't quite reach us but was on the mountains. Here's a few photos - I took loads hee hee.

Because of the cold and us all needing a rest we stayed inside the caravan much of the time - good food, good wine :) Because of this I did loads of stitching and reading in just four days.

I read another Victoria Connelly on my Kindle whilst away - Unmasking Elena Monella. I love her books - mainly because of her trio based on Mr Darcy and Jane Austin. This one was set in Italy and was an absorbing read, perfect for the snowy weather.

Have a great Easter, this is an Easter Card from me to you x x x x
