We took advantage of the final week of B.S.T. and headed off to Northumberland for a bit of well deserved rest and relaxation. We stayed at Dove Cottage, highly recommended if you are looking for a comfy, cosy base for a walking holiday. The weather was (mostly) kind to us so we were able to go out walking everyday. Here are some pictorial highlights:

A new hat:

Unusually for a holiday let, Dove Cottage had a really good high speed wi-fi connection, so on the Thursday evening I was surprised to receive an email from Adrianne telling me that I had won a prize in the quarter 3 finish-along draw (scroll to end of page to see my winning entry!)! I won a copy of the High Tea Quilt pattern, of which I have more to say another time!
