No stitching .

Hi folks .
I have not been doing much stitching again the last couple of weeks . got some RAKs finished , but not yet sent out and stalled a bit as I have been reading and had too much on my mind to settle down with needle and thread .
So , I thought I'd show some other pics instead .
The other weekend, just as the snow hit us (although not very much) we decided to go to Hardwick Park and watch the water birds skating on the ice . We didn't stay long as it was really cold , and set off home just as the snow started to fall.

It was really strange watching the geese ,ducks and swans walking on water ,lol.

This is the big pond , and apart from a very small patch right at the other end , it was totally frozen over . The kids were very excited to find fox paw prints in the snow on our drive . The view from the front garden . We also had another small sprinkling of snow a couple of days later , not worth bothering about , but the flakes were proper snowflakes/star shapes ,which I haven't seen for a lot of years.

That's all for now . I'll be back soon with some pics of a lovely giveaway I won from Barb . Thanks again Barb X
