A Stitching Day and a Little Skye

Okay this has nothing to do with stitching or Skye, just wanted to show you my supurr~visor Miss Meow. She loves being on me, wether it be my neck, shoulders or chest. If she’s on my chest, then Mooch climbs up there too! I’m holding him now while the motor races and let’s see how long I can do this one handed.

We’re on the Isle of Skye, which is the largest most northern major island of the Inner Hebrides. It is the top location in Scotland famous for scenery and landscaping.

As you can see by the clouds that it is quite a rainy day. That’s okay as we’re going to spend the morning stitching!

We all shared the same room irregardless of what we were working on. Phillipa’s Dunollie feathers or Meredith’s Dunollie Rose.

Meredith was actually stitching on her piece that she would teach on the All England Trip with the Crewelwork Company tour. Check out her tartan chicken frame weight!

Here’s my tartan chicken that is keeping my bear company! I will tell you about his tartan in a few days.

After we had ample stitching time in, we were ready to head to Portree, which is the capital of Skye. It is a bustling port, boasting a natural harbor and it’s is also a thriving cultural center. Very quaint and charming.

We would shop, have lunch and shop some more. I took no pictures in Portree as it was raining way too much! It was a great day and soon would head back to the hotel. We had some time to ourselves to rest, explore around the hotel or stitch!

Tomorrow would be a busy day as we head to Dunvegan Castle on the Waternish Peninsula and Skye Skins. Time is going too by too fast and quickly I am falling in love with Scotland.

I’ll leave you with another picture of Miss Meow…can you find her?

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?
