It could be a little Emmerdale, with a helicopter about to crash into the village hall as a wedding is underway ...

Must admit I like the idea of something Very Bad happening somewhere - so that at first glance it looks idyllic but closer inspection reveals that all is not as it seems!! (touch of the Midsomer Murders?)

But here we are, no more spending Sunday at the stupormarket or the local retail outlet ...



In case the pics are (yet again) invisibuble

Same here....I thought how lucky you were to find such a lovely bit of fabric with multicoloured little squares.

That's lovely Iminei.

If you ever go into St David's cathedral in Pembrokeshire you will come out understanding that your  church is a model of perpendicularity.

The arches inside St David's are enough to make you feel quite queasy.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
