After a hugely successful Open Studios 2013 and a short break up north, it's back into the work room this week to finish some commission pieces and make new stock.
I will be at a small Craft Show in Aberdeen on Monday 20th May
11 Cairnlee Avenue East
This event is being hosted by Michelle Crawford Joseph and as well as me there with will be Hannah Scriven with her turned wood candle holders, bowls and other items.
Stamping Up Greetings Cards and
Nibbles, Tea and Coffee will be served and although this event is being held in a private house, don't be shy! You are all welcome to come along!
I will have my new mugs with me along with my full range of Textile Jewellery,
Sheep Jewellery, Notebooks, Cards, Sketchbooks, Prints, Trinket Boxes and more!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our short break to Gairloch last week.
The weather was fantastic with clear views over to the Isle of Skye and beyond.
We drove out to Rue Reidh Lighthouse and enjoyed our lunch while sitting on the rocks.
I loved to see the washing flapping in the breeze with the Isle of Skye and The Old Man of Storr in the distance.
Just up the road a bit from where I took this photo, we got such a surprise when an otter ran across the road right in front of us and dived into a hidden pool under a rock! It was fabulous to see one so close up but such a shock as he or she seemed to come from nowhere.
We hiked across the heather to this beach at Camas Mor.
There was no path as such and it was a bit of s scramble to get down to the beach but it was so worth it!
I love a wild beach and this one was just that but I can't be beside water that colour and not go in so in we went! It was FREEZING! but exhilarating and so much fun.
I can't praise the hotel we stayed in enough for the lovely time we had there.
The Myrtle bank is right on the waters edge at Gairloch and we enjoyed this sunset from the conservatory while watching otters play in the water. Just perfect!
The food was amazing too!
So that's me all refreshed and full of inspiration again.
Do come along to the show on Monday morning if you are in the Aberdeen area.
I'll look forward to meeting some of you there.
