Day in North Yorkshire

David and I went to North Yorkshire and as David visited the North Yorkshire Railway at Pickering for their Spring Steam Gala I decided to go to Scarborough. Lovely to see the sea again, took a few piccies but these caught my eye. The following photos were taken in Blands Cliff, a very steep cobbled street which joins the shopping area of Eastgate and the seafront.

And looking back down.

After a few hours of shopping and sightseeing. I drove back to Pickering to await his return on one of the engines. There were a lot of people waiting at the station (for a train, of course!)
One particular train. And the engine was....
Tornado - the new steam engine, that was only named earlier this year.
Unfortunately it was not the one that David was on, that was to come in a lot later. Nevertheless we both had an enjoyable day and the weather behaved too.Some sewing was done earlier in the week. I finished off the two cushions that were in progress from my last post and now on one of our settees.A Sunday morning trip to Tescos for a few bits and pieces and some tulips that I could not resist.


  1. sounds like a great day,I love North Yorkshire Whitby + Scarborough are my favourites.Love the cushions too.

  2. Lovely cushions. Did you get to the quilt fabric shop in Scarborough? I'm going to stock up tomorrow.

  3. Pleased you like the cushions, Shell and Lynne.

    I didn't get the cushion fabric from the fabric shop in Scarborough, I bought this as a kit for one cushion cover from Bramble Patch in Northampton where I stopped off on my last visit to Dorset in March. There was enough of the blue fabric for two cushion covers but had to send off to Bramble Patch for extra cream fabric. The kit is advertised on the kits section of their website.
