When we woke up this morning, it had snowed. There was a good 1/4 inch where it had drifted! And only on the coast. The roads were slow getting out of Blyth, but then no snow at all.... so I got to work and then mid morning it started to snow. And it snowed on and off all day. By the time I left we had maybe half an inch.
I appreciate I have some readers from places that have proper snow and they are probably laughing. But in the UK this meant grid lock on the way home. It took me half an hour to travel half a mile and then I wiggled through the villages and avoided the main roads and got home in an hour (normally 25 minutes). Michael normally takes 45 minutes to get home from work. It took him 3.5 hours - he is not a happy bunny!
It was just as well I didn't spend 3 hours in my car because I have a swap item to make for the Christmas ornament swap over on Threadbias. I'm leaving it a bit late - posting window is 3rd to 8th December. I was going to EPP, but didn't fancy it when I got home so designed a small embroidery instead.
Here are the fabrics to back it.
And here is progress so far (note to self: avoid french knots in metallic thread in the future).
