Been busy recently having been half term so we went off to Cardiff for a weekend to see Tom. Managed to get a cheap deal in a hotel so were able to enjoy ourselves in the Bay area and fit in a trip to Penarth where we nearly froze to death on the pier ! Had a bizarre experience in a cafe where the owner tried telling us that the reason the table was not clean was due to the fact that a) the waitress was a foreign exchange student and did not speak English and b) they had done face painting on the Saturday…..it was about 2 pm on Monday at this point! Anyway, this didn’t detract from seeing Tom or enjoying the company of him, Lauren and the other Tom on Sunday night.
Penarth pier was undergoing some remedial works and inspite of the ‘bracing’ February wind it was easy to see what a grand piece of Victorian architecture it is.
This final picture seems like a really good starting point for a crochet lace border and may well be developed into the edge for the shawl I am working on!
