A lot of Vikings

I pinched these photos from my Husband, we live close to York and spent the day there shopping yesterday, on the way in on the radio we heard there was a Viking Festival my Hubby happen to have bought his SLR with him. The top shot is one of my hubby's street photography shots and the one's below are some of the Vikings we just loved the one who was texting.
Since I was in York we had to have a trip to the Viking Loom which is a needlecraft shop,  because I needed some threads!
Tomorrow I am off on a course with the RCM for a week, as I am the Health and Safety Stewart I am going to stay at Wortley Hall just outside Sheffield so it should be interesting I did have my arm twisted to do this just because I deal with the Health and safety Risk assessments on my Unit.

I have just found your blog and love it! I have read the whole thing! I love your photos of your travels and needlework shops.
I live in Georgia (USA) and love
to read blogs in other countries,
so very interesting. I don't have
a blog myself but I certainly read
a lot of them!
Please continue to write and put in
all those interesting photos. I
would like to see a photo of the
jacket you knitted for your mum!!
