I don't normally do non-stitching posts, but this is by way of explaining my new header photo. As many of you will know I live near the Trent and Mersey Canal. One of our favourite places to visit is Fradley Junction, just a short drive from us. Back in the summer we discovered The Cheese Boat whilst over there, and bought some lovely Cheddar cheese flavoured with whisky, called Amber Mist and a red Leicester flavoured with chillies and crushed pepper called Red Devil. If you look at the link you'll see that this boat tours all around the canals and does in fact come to Great Haywood Junction, very near to where I live. Today, however, the boat was at Fradley so Keith and I braved the cold, and boy was it cold, and went over there to buy some more cheese. When we got there we discovered the Fudge Boat was there as well. I was in seventh heaven as I love fudge! The photo below shows what we came home with. In the header photo the Cheese Boat is the one on the right with the Fudge Boat behind it.
I hope you all had a really lovely Christmas, and I wish you all a very Happy New Year! Hopefully there will be a stitching post from me soon.
