April Sunshine

We had a lovely weekend at the caravan over Easter; our daughter drove up from Cardiff and joined us for a few days. It's hard to believe she was 12 when we first had the caravan and now she is driving herself up. I took my Easter branch (it's from my Grandma's hazelnut tree) and our hanging eggs. With our cards (we had a beautiful handmade one from Barb), daffodils and tree the caravan looked very decorative.

I snapped a few scenic views from the car - they are only on my phone and I snap lots as we drive a long but some turn out surprisingly well. I didn't even know there was a pigeon.

 My iphone's camera is quite good really, and because it has an instant shutter I don't get the shake or so much blurring as I do with a camera. I took a few on our walk along the seafront.

Beautiful beach

Welsh flag, slate and hills
Certainly a sunny day 
I managed a little stitching too - as it was the weekend I worked on The Drawn Thread December and on Monday I did a little more on The Primitive Needle's Earth's Sampler. I also started this month's challenge from Needlecraft Haven but that has to stay secret for now.

Since coming home I have added the snowflakes to one of my Santa Houses - I couldn't stay on the Parlour long this week but hopefully next week I'll have one house fully 'snowed'.

It's started to snow !
