There and back again

Builth Wells is a delightful little town, which was taken over by  British fibre enthusiasts on the 22nd and 23rd April, as Wonderwool Wales took place at the Royal Welsh Showground. I am not going to post lots of photos of the event, as it has been done so well over on the official website. However, I will say that it was great fun, and well worth attending. Particularly as my great friend S allowed me to 'help' at her stall, 'fivemoons'. So much amazing yarn!
The Monday after the event was to be a quiet day, so I took a walk into the town, and discovered some lovely local shops. This wonderful mural of a Dragon under a tree had to be photographed....  the scale is evident, as the window frame is real, but blocked up, with the cat behind bars painted onto the blank.

Further along the road, and to the right, I discovered this one-of-a-kind shop. ( The two images should be one continuous picture, but the car blocked out too much). It contains an amazing array of vintage and collectible stock. There is also a fabulous little café tucked in there, where everything is made and served by the proprietor, ( who is a professional chef). If you go to Builth, do not miss it!
Although we had great fun, it was wonderful to return home. Enjoying oneself can be exhausting!
