Last week I was away on a little holiday down to Whitby in England with Andy and one of our friends, and it turned out to be a lovely week away. We stayed at a cosy 3 bedroom cottage for the week, and it was great! Here are some photos of the living room, our attic bedroom, the kitchen and the little wood burner (which I loved to pieces!)
This is the lovely panoramic view from our bedroom window, I managed to capture this one morning. It was very relaxing to gaze out in the morning.
We chose to go to Whitby for the week, as there was a Whitby Goth Weekend where there were gothic, victorian, steampunk markets and stalls. There were many fascinating things to see, and it was amazing to see lots of people in victorian costumes.
On the Friday and Saturday night, there was entertainment at the Whitby Pavilion where live bands performed. I wasn't sure what to expect of this, as I was being stereotypical and thought it would be metal bands screaming but it wasn't like that at all!
I LOVE MY OUTFIT!
I was going for the victorian gothic vibe while Andy went for the cyber punk style. This was a very common theme at the festival!There were even young children dressed up for the event!
When I go next year I want to have a proper full outfit! Whether it be victorian, steampunk, pirate or something like this girl is wearing (stunning huh?).
Even though I went on holiday, crochet was not forgotten! I think being on holiday helped me crochet a lot more, as I crocheted in the morning before going out exploring and in the evenings when settling down. Here is a little bit of my holiday wool pornography!
Once I got home, I received some lovely beads in the post for making crochet stitch markers as I have been using paper clips to mark my stitches. This was hopeless since they kept falling out! My first attempt was using little star beads that I ordered, but I found them a little bit awkward to use because of the top point of the star.
Then I used these lovely beads, and it has been less fidgety and the beads sit lovely. I found the assortment of purple beads on holiday, and I loved the variety of different ones in the little bag! No more using silly paper clips hurray!
I apologise for posting lots of photographs but I wanted to talk about everything as I have been away for the whole week, and can't wait to catch up with all the other blogs!
