I'll have to rely on my Welsh friends and google, but I think that means Happy St David's Day!
Typical Welsh to take 5 words where we English would only use 4! *Ducks from flying Bara Brith*.
So, it's Friday and I've got no post planned. Woop! I guess that means I need to actually transfer some of my photos from the camera and blog about them, how novel!
Here's a sneak peak of my next pattern which is due out next week.
Coming up we have the Sew-vivor competition from Family Ever After, is anyone entering the auditions? I think I'll enter something because I love to have a purpose to the things I make and there is something I want to make. Maybe this will give me the spur I need.
In other news, have you heard of the horsemeat scandal that's been going on in the UK for a few weeks now? I think it's spread to Europe but I'm not sure to what extent. The thing of it is, (yes, that's a very Welsh phrase, I know that), they tested burgers, ready meals, frozen beef and it turned out that some of it was up to 90% horse DNA. I don't think the issue is that it's horse and it's dangerous, the issue is that it was labelled beef....and there's no way on earth horse is beef. I can't even work out what you would call horsemeat. Heef? Hork? Hausages? (sorry, I couldn't resist that last one.)
So anyway, back to the point of this post. Today it's St David's Day. It amuses me that the whole world knows of St Patrick's day, indeed, many celebrate it, but nobody knows or cares about the other UK patron saints. Well I do so today in celebration, I sniffed my daffodils, put on some red pants and then ate a Welshcake. I'm far too patriotic for my own good really!

On Sunday our church will celebrate by all wearing Welsh rugby tops (or just red), singing Welsh hymns, in Welsh (well, some will, those of us who are English will just mumble along trying to work out how to pronounce it), have some Welshcakes and Bara Brith with tea after the service and sit looking at some stuffed sheep toys on the stage while trying to focus on the speaker.
That's my Friday, what are you all up to?
