Back to Scotland!

Last I left you we are traveling through Scotland with Lady Anne’s Needlework Retreats hosted by Phillipa Turnbull and The Crewelwork Company. We had just left Blair Castle where we were lucky enough to view part of the private collection of Lady Evelyn Stewart Murray’s lace.

We are now at our next stop The Muckrack Country House Hotel located in Granton-on-Spey, where the food, the ambiance, the Scotch and the stitching would be fabulous! We were in time for cocktail hour and the young barkeep was quite charming as he walked me through a few different ones. I wanted to try those that weren’t imported to the States. This Knockando wound up being my favorite!

This was my room which were by names rather than numbers. This is a dear friends last name, albeit with a different spelling, so I had to take a picture of it!

Dinner is served! I’m not sure what was better, the presentation or the taste!

We would be here for 3 nights and the next day would be a stitching day in which we would start our embroidery piece with Meredith.

On another note, life with 2 little kittens is rather different! Everything is a toy to them and I don’t know who’s having more fun…them or me? Speaking of toys, I am sure that all of my stitching stuff will be a toy, so I don’t see myself doing much of that for awhile! So I should have more time to blog… well maybe not so much this week as we have our Fall Getaway at the shop this weekend. I need to ready the daily trinkets that I love leaving for them every morning at their seats and wrap a few door prizes.

So I will leave you with a picture of the kids. Miss Meow it is and it so fits her as she’s a talker! Missy for short.

FraidyCat, ScaredyCat is not so much anymore and too many people said ooh he won’t be like that forever! So the other day while I was looking at my email, My daily “Mutts” cartoon was sitting there and it hit me, Mooch! which is then main cat character in the strip.

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?

  1. Missy and Mooch look like they are fitting right in! They are so cute! My sister just got a little black kitten and she is having such fun. Our three are all senior citizens at 13 but the little orange guy still thinks he is a kitten!

  2. Wow that food looks amazing and look at your 2 new furry friends. Congrats, they are lucky to have you as their mom. I don’t think I could live without a cat either.
