Last week my hubby told me not to make any arrangements for the weekend as we were going away. That was it and he wouldnt tell me where so it was a lovely suprise to end up just outside Ambleside in the Lake District. He had booked us in at a beautiful Country House Hotel called Crow How. The weather as we drove up there on Friday was lovely, and Saturday was a beautiful day very un-lake district weather lol. We did the Coffin Walk from Ambleside to Grasmere and then back along Grasmere and Rydal lakes. We took it slowly with lots of stops to admire the scenery and for cakes and hot chocolate by the river when we reached Grasmere so I really enjoyed it. Saturday was more Lakeland weather as it rained for most of the day so as we are National Trust members we went to Sizeburgh Castle for the day. Today the sun was shining again so we drove to Coniston and spent the morning by the lake before driving home again.
Oh yes I took some stitching but thought I would take something on aida so it would be easy on the old eyes. Quite appropriate as we were in the Lake District with lambs everywhere we looked.
Hi my name is Helen.

My blog will be about my stitching and my card making and I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I enjoy sharing with you.
