Cymru am byth! **

Happy St David's Day!   Today is the Welsh National Day.  We used to get a half-day off school, after dressing up in costume and a big group picture taken!  Well, actually... my mam had one costume (she had sewn and knitted)  that fitted a 6-year old, and my three close in age sisters and I each got about two chances to wear it to school!

I don't have pictures - but go and look and these links!

Traditional Welsh quilts   most of them were made from woollen fabrics

** Wales forever!
