I have been away for a few days break down to the North Yorks coast. We stayed at Gisborough Hall - dating to the 1850's.
It was a warm contrast to the beautiful but bracing weather in Whitby
It was sunny but the wind was straight from the North Pole!
And Saltburn beach was even more windswept - but it didn't seem to bother the jet skier and canoeists that were out there in the thundering waves!
I found some more delights to sell on eBay now that I have returned - these textiles are from Yorkshire too. This is a very sweet applique hand stitched quilt with tulips on a lilac background.
