I had planned on having a nice walk along the canal when I got to Llangollen this afternoon, but the weather was horrible, I stopped off in Oswestry en route, it's a nice market town with some shops that we don't have local to us anymore so I always like to have a look to see if anything takes my fancy. I got rather wet today though, the rain hasn't stopped all day!
I got to the hotel about 3.30pm, dumped my stuff and just had a quick walk up the high street and then ducked into a café for an early tea, mushroom soup and a sandwich, and a pot of Earl Grey, very nice it was too.
The river looked very rough, and scary!
My room is on the top floor of the hotel and looks out onto the river Dee which in this section is very fast flowing, you can hear the noise from it when I open the window.
I've had a nice quiet evening and done a little bit of stitching on Merry Christmas by Brenda Gervais.
I'm close to finishing this one, just that section with the trees and snow to stitch, there are some snowflakes scattered around the piece but I'm not sure I will do those yet.
I will try and post again tomorrow and tell you all about or stitching day at the Nimble Thimble, there is going to be quite a few of us this time.
I'm off to make a hot chocolate and have a chocolate malted milk biscuit (or two) before I turn in :-)
See you soon
