Brrr!




Last week I was working on these brooches (when I wasn't having problems!)
This picture is for Sally.
Its lime green with a pale orange background.
The knitting needles have nothing to do with anything they were just out on the table.

Then today was gorgeous. We don't often get really cold sunny days and they are so picturesque I just had to get out for a walk.


The day reminded me of 'The Eve of St Agnes' by Keats. Another snippet from my remembered store:

'St. Agnes' Eve--Ah, bitter chill it was!
The owl, for all his feathers, was a-cold;
The hare limp'd trembling through the frozen grass,
And silent was the flock in woolly fold: '



The focus in this next picture is all wrong but it gives the right impression.
There are more pictures of today's walk on Flickr. The link is below the pic.

Last week I sent a parcel to a lady in Hawaii.
We joked about the differences in our climates at the moment and I was a weeny bit envious of the blue sky and sunshine they were having.
But on a day like today I wouldn't swap.
A wonderful beautiful cold English Winters day.
