A Stitching Day in Scotland!

I was up very early the next morning and went outside exploring. Everything is so green as it is always raining! Well not really, it just seemed that way.

These gorgeous animals all added to the scenery, especially the highland cattle. We would see them everywhere, both the real ones and little stuffed ones, which will show up later!

Soon it would be time to go in and start stitching! This was our beautiful room and we were warmly greeted by Meredith.

Meredith created the Dunollie Tudor Rose and Pansy based on remnants from the original pieces that reside in the Dunollie castle. We would stitch with this English flat silk and a fabulous gold metallic which surprisingly really did behave for me.

With this good thread we learned the “ladder stitch” as the back of our fabric had very little gold showing, basically a row of lines looking like the rungs of a ladder. Thread was too precious of a commodity to waste any!

The baseball game is getting too good and the natives are getting restless, so I will say bye for now…

I came home from work the other day to find the Mooch and Miss Meow sleeping on top of the cable box. We were going to the vets and funny thing is they really did weigh 4# 8oz!

  1. So, what’s the little dot on your fabric? Looks like a button? Beautiful babies! I wondered how you would get along without a furry friend at home.

  2. I’m so glad you have those beautiful fur babies to go home to, Vicky! I’m enjoying the baseball games too as well as your blog.
