I won't go on with the weather but lets just say this week has been totally awful it can't get any worse can it?
The Somerset levels are totally devastated, the railway lines to the west country are broken so Devon and Cornwall are cut off from the rest of the UK, its going to take weeks to even repair at least one of the lines, and months for the other lines. Although we are not flooded here we don't have to go too far before we hit flooding and its just keeps on raining. My lawn is going yellow in places which means it has too much water in the ground. There are many parts of Southern England suffering from floods at the moment, even places that have never flooded before. The southern coastal regions of the UK have just been bombarded by the high seas, the damage is going to cost billions by the time the weather improves for work to begin and its all to do with the jet stream bring the low pressure systems across the Atlantic Ocean, anyone know the sun dance please.
Anyway today I thought I would show you some of my set of European Counted Cross Stitch pictures that I did many years, they are all framed and on the wall going up the stairs.
This is a series of 12 pictures from Anna Magazine dated 1987, they did a different picture each month for the year, I have done 8 in all, the ones I had been to when I made them, theres the first four.
