Snow? What snow?

A bit of colour to start with in the form of one of our new Flower Patch cards.

This snowman was created by our daughter and husband in their garden near Nottingham, nowhere near Fife (see below).

Britain is apparently hidden under a blanket of snow. Transport has ground to a halt, schools closed, snowmen sprouting up all over the place......except here in Fife! We have brown ground, dark skies and freezing temperatures, but... no snow.

The workshop is almost too cold to work in and we're mostly huddled round the coal fire - very cosy - but not conducive to work! The photo was taken at Christmas, I have to say, hence the decorations, but the fire is just as cosy now - minus decorations.

Work hasn't stopped though. We're making headway with the orders from the Trade Fair - the first batch went out this week - and we've had a steady stream of website customers, the latest from Australia where the sun is no doubt shining and it's hot. Ah well, Spring can't be too far away here.

  1. Hi Marion. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog : )You look like a very busy lady! I love that card with the little patch squares.
    Be nice to meet you at a craft fair sometime. St Andrews will be my first with Craft Fairs Scotland. We moved to Fife two and a half years ago and really like it here. We are not that far from Leven actually.
    I'll add your blog to my page and visit often.
    All the best, Aileen.
