Well the promised snow has arrived in North Essex in bucket loads overnight. So I walked over to the beach with my camera this morning and took some photos of our snowy beach.
Yes, all that white is the sand covered in a blanket of snow! The beach huts didn’t look quite right –

I spotted this poor little Sanderling trying to find food in the tiny bit of sand left not covered in snow. Walton seafront looks like this.

Looks a bit chilly? Yes it’s freezing! It was quite windy so the snow has piled up in drifts making it hard to walk along. Good job I wore my lovely fur-lined snow boots.

Don’t forget those of you who are machine embroiderers to download February’s free machine embroidery designs from our website. http://www.embroiderycrazy.co.uk/shop/specials/ There is a very topical penguin. It would look great on a child’s jacket, hat or scarf. We also have a pretty lacy dragonfly design. The first of our new ‘Crazy’ designs are also available to buy. We will be adding to these so they will form collections when we have enough. Coming shortly in new designs is a fox, a tattoo rose, and some more sporty designs.

If you are in snowy UK, or indeed any other snowy country,  stay warm and safe!
