Lanhydrock, near Bodmin in Cornwall

Hello Dear Reader,

When I was growing up, I didn't go without, but my patents did to make sure that we didn't.

It's lovely to be able to treat them.

We took them to Lanhydrock House, run by the National Trust.

It's set in the most beautiful grounds.

I will let you have a look for yourself.

St Hydrock's well.

Thatched summer house.

The gardens were sun kissed and it was lovely to take a slow amble with my parents.

If you enjoyed Downton Abbey then you would love a nose around here.

I loved the Morris wallpaper. The house has remained unchanged since the 20's although most of the house has remained  unchanged since Victoria was the queen.

My favourite areas of the house were the domestic areas. 

I hope everyone had a peaceful Good Friday.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxxxx

A restful day at home

Hello Dear Reader,

Phase two of our double glazing was completed today. I stayed in, made tea for the fitters, took care of the dogs and put my foot pedal down for a few hours.

I now have 448 of these 3.5" blocks .

I have 448 of these 3.5" blocks .

I am now in the process of making 224 of these beauties.

Watch this space as my next quilt emerges!

What is everyone up to this Easter weekend? We're taking my parents out tomorrow.

Family, friends, gardening and's been a lovely week .

Until tomorrow,
