A long break...

Hello! We are still here, and only realised this week that we haven't blogged since December - eek!

Our not-entirely-intentional break from blogging has been mostly down to my new job, which is going very well, but has been pretty relentless and has meant that we've had to take some time out from printmaking for a few months.

We've just come back from a very relaxing, restorative holiday in Snowdonia. We stayed in Rhiwddolion (pronounced Ruth-0-leon), which is a semi-abandoned village in the hills above Betws-y-coed. The Landmark Trust own three properties there, and we stayed in the oldest, Ty Uchaf, built in 1685.

The house was a fifteen minute walk from the car along a very pretty (and muddy!) path, and the fields around the house are full of interesting ruined old cottages and farmhouses.

We enjoyed exploring Snowdonia and there are a lot more photos on Flickr.

But now we're back, refreshed and ready to embark on some new prints!

Goodness, it looks as though you had to be rather intrepid to stay at that beautiful cottage. I expect this made you both feel as though you were really escaping though. It looks beautiful. BTW, looking forward to meeting at the PNM again in May.

You escape to a stone cottage sounds wonderful... did you feel as if you were in a 19th novel?

Hope it's inspired lots of new prints.
