Anyway I had a great weekend away as the guest of Lincoln Bailgate Embroiderers Guild .
They made me so welcome , a lovely group, and very talented too. Have a look at the current issue of Stitch magazine, there's an article on their beautiful work based on an old manuscript.
We were making Fairy shoes, a lovely day of stitching and laughter .
Lucky Fairy who gets this pair. . . . .
They 'morphed' from this before my eyes!
It's great to see all the imaginative ways that these little shoes evolve.
I made sure that I had time to visit Lincoln Cathedral, what treasure there!
I just had to show a few more holiday pics.
Here's Rowan being Queen of the Castle on one of the little islands at Sandaig, Gavin Maxwell's 'Camusfearna'.
It's a magical place, quite a strange atmosphere and you can just imagine the otters playing .
The hills in the picture are on the island of Skye. Seen here wearing a fluffy, cloud hat.
Lastly, we sat one evening, watching the sun set in the north of Skye. The ridge of islands in the distance is the Outer Hebrides and sea mist rolled back and forth between.
It was so beautiful and I fell completely in love with this amazing island and it's people.
