snowed in...

We've been snowed in these last few days (I'm sure many of you have been too!) with no choice of going out,  theres been lots of  sorting, making & planning, alongside the comfort of the fire, extra jumpers on & endless cups of coffee, oh & a little bit of baking!

 notes & coffee! lovely French  lace  which I'm still deciding on what to do with, we have some larger pieces of  lace  on the website, along with some other new additions, hopefully more next week!  new mug from  NOM  & current favourite  Oatley  Oat Milk to have with coffee.
