Yesterday we returned from Wales where we had a wonderful time: fairly good weather, good food and we made lots of fun trips to castles, museums and other local attractions. The cottage we had rented was great as well. It was clean, well stocked and it had lots and lots of quilts!
On our visit to Bletchley Park (which is nowhere near Wales but we stopped by on our way to Wales) I saw this wonderfully cute 'Playtime Drapery Store' which I guess is from the 1930's. I also stumbled upon a Manbroiderer avant-la-lettre.
This is one of the bedrooms in the cottage we had rented. Every bedroom had matching bed quilts and quilted wall hangings! Later this week I will write a bit more about some crafty stuff I did (and mostly didn't) in the last couple of weeks but I had to sneak in this next 'me and my owl' photo in this post!
We absolutely loved the Owl Centre in Kington (Herefordshire). They had so many different examples of British (and other) owls. There were lots of other animals too like goats and alpacas. The best thing (for me) was that you were allowed to say hello to a few of the most friendly owls in the centre! (or a 'nose to beak experience' as the centre calls it)
