Walk in the woods

Remember I told you that I had joined a W.I. group 
 about 5 miles away in my friends village. 

Every other Tuesday is WI. walking group day
and today we went to the woods were I walk my dogs. 
Some of the ladies didn't know the woods and
 the others hadn't been here for many years so I was leading the way.

 Fortune favours the brave as the rain held off until we finished
 and got back to the car.

 Half way along we stopped at the 
the old canal,

They have been clearing the water which had become
so overgrown with reeds that I had no idea
this large turning pool was even there.

The old mill over looks it all. It would be lovely
to have an apartment here- if they ever
do anything with it.

Time to stand and stare

The woods are described as ancient and
 the size of the large Oak in the centre proves it.
I would love to know how old it is.

At the end  of the walk it was back to mine for coffee and cake
but I forgot to take photos of the cakes before we ate them.

One up side of all the rain is that I'm doing alot of sewing 
and finishing off some half completed projects.
I had loads of fabrics squares cut out with the intention of making 
a patchwork at some time.
Well that time was today, i stitched them all together and 
gave a very spoilt Labrador a new bed.

Within 30 seconds she was trying it out for size.

I hope you are all having a good week.

There are a couple of good giveaways
going at the moment ,the link buttons are on the
Why not pop over and have a look.

See you soon.
