Today my virtual gift to you is a weekend away on the edge of the English Lake District in the market town of Penrith.
You will stay at this lovely home from home bed and breakfast. After your traditional English breakfast you can wander around the village to see the aplpaca farm, or take tea in my favourite tea shop. Just down the road is the famous fudge shop and while you are there you might lie to take a Baltimore class at Morceau just three miles from your accommodation. Or, if you want a break from quilting why not check out the mountains and lakes?
