Watery Wooly Weekends

Fabulously smug husbands book minibreaks in watery cities as surprise birthday presents…

And take their shocked and fabulously indulged wife to watery hotels with private boats…09-P1100231 11-P1100236

to fish and food markets to drop one’s jaw…

12-P1100238 14-P1100250

Even when the weather is wet and the wife’s attire seems to be modelled on the fashions of the local fishermen…

16-P1100252 17-P1100256

And said hubbie spots quilting inspiration on the floor of many and varied religious venues…39-P1100281 20-P1100272 21-P1100280

And then indulges a wooly passion or two with a rain-sodden exploration around the semi-navigable streets to find the ONLY YARN SHOP IN VENICE

Beautiful wools…

26-P1100298 27-P1100299

Patient staff and exciting, Italian ranges in a range of prices, colours and styles…28-P1100300 29-P1100301

With the inevitable souvenir purchases….

Watch this space for the hat and scarf that will be emanating from these four balls of gorgeousness…
