Hay on Wye

We  are so lucky to be able to spend time in Hay on Wye. What a lovely part of the world! Our friends, Penny and John, moved here last year and we are enjoying spending some time with them here. On Monday  we drove here and then spent some time exploring the town on Tuesday morning. Hay on Wye is famous for its many book shops and  its yearly Hay Literary Festival. 



There are lovely shops here and we enjoyed looking through one of the large antique shops.
On Tuesday afternoon, Penny asked me to prepare some kits for the stitching group that she has joined here in Hay. We had a lovely afternoon of chat and stitching. The ladies brought along lovely examples of what they enjoy doing to decorate the room. I  didn't take any pictures of the afternoon but there are some on Facebook at Threading.Notions. Judy brought along some amazing cross stitch! This one is done on 40 count linen over 2 threads! The stitches are so small!

Here are two more! Aren't they beautiful?

Good to see you and Penny there! can't really believe you are both on the other side of the world. I also noticed you were standing down the hill, rather than at the top!!ha ha
