Well that was a lot of fuss about nothing – for us here at Oakhill anyway! The Newfies were very excited when the snow began to fall and insisted on heading out into the garden for the full experience. I was only able to coax them inside with the promise of a lovely walk in the snow the next day. We had a lovely walk … but the promised deep cover of snow failed to materialise …..
Here they are with two of their best friends, Merlin and Bentley the springer spaniels enjoying their stroll around the village playing fields. Daisy tried very hard to demonstrate how to roll in what snow there was, but Merlin doesn’t seem to be at all impressed with her antics ….
And that was it! The snow has all gone now, though it’s absolutely freezing. I think the cold weather has helped keep my Christmas wreath looking nice. I took it down on Twelfth Night, but couldn’t bring myself to compost it, it’s still far too pretty ….
So it’s sitting on an upturned zinc planter by the back door where I can enjoy it for just a little longer. But I’m rambling again … this post was supposed to simply announce our latest giveaway.
One of the patterns in the current Bustle & Sew Magazine is the Pea Pod Pin Cushion. I made two samples which I thought would make nice prizes …..
And so for your chance to win one of these pin cushions please just leave a comment below. It would be great if, just for fun, you could tell us what is your favourite vegetable! The giveaway is of course free to enter and I will post your pin cushion anywhere in the world. The winner will be chosen by random selection and the giveaway closes at midnight on Monday 16th January.
Good luck everyone!
Giveaway is now closed – thanks so much to everyone who entered.
