To the Lighthouse

Wow. What a fantastic weekend we've had!! The lighthouse was absolutely brilliant - only about 30 minutes' drive from Cardiff, but in deepest, darkest middle of nowhere (or the edge of nowhere perhaps, given that were were on the coast!), with only a few locals, a cracking pub, plenty of cows, and even more sheep. We had such a wonderful time - went on lots of walks, went out for dinner, watched some of the rugby world cup (including the nearly infamous game where the nearly excellent Canadian side nearly upset a nearly poor Wales side, but didn't). We just had a most fabulous, relaxing time! So as you can imagine, not much in the way of a stitching update, although I did get a few hours in on Spanish Wine last Thursday, and I'll post an update photo at the bottom.

As an aside, I think I've just realised exactly how much stitching I've tasked myself with this month. I'm rather quaking in my boots. If I were wearing boots, or had legs which were given to trembling.

Happy stitching all, and thank you as always for stopping by!
