Autumn Colours At Quarr

I had a wonderful week at my yearly event "Christmas Crafts At Quarr Abbey". The sun shone with beautiful blue skies and the grounds of the Abbey took on an amber autumn glow. These are the November days I love.

This fine old oak tree looked glorious. The colours of the leaves all different from greens to golds, all rustling in the light breeze. A day to wrap up warm and enjoy nature's kind gifts of a gentle easy afternoon stroll.

That is just what a lot of our visitors did and it was lovely to see them. I sold lots of woolly goodies such as my hand woven scarves, hand knitted hand warmers, hats and socks as well as Christmas themed stock.  

I took along my spinning wheel and spun up some yarn while I was there being inspired by the autumn colours I chose this blend of Blue Faced Leicester and Silk.
