Stitching and More!

We stitched away on our Dunollie Rose and Pansy under Meredith’s superb tutelage!

Always demonstrating and answering all of our queries.

This was Phillipa’s class in the lovely sitting room. They could stitch here as they were doing the crewel work piece which didn’t need the light and magnification that we did.

Stitching is hard work and we had worked up quite an appetite for lunch which was served buffet style. I did not get any pictures of the table, but trust me it tasted as good as it looked!

After lunch it was time for a little adventure outside the hotel. We loaded onto the bus with Simon, our fabulous bus driver and off we went. We passed by the Carrbridge, located in the Scottish Highlands. I was rather thrilled that I got this great picture from the moving bus! It is the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands located near an ancient pine forest. Maybe that’s where an episode or two of Outlander was filmed?

We traveled onto the Highland Center Scottish Center where we viewed some fine textiles and assorted embroideries from private collections that we couldn’t take pictures of. A beautiful afternoon which we finished up with a little retail therapy!

Back to the hotel to partake in a wee bit of Scotch and to see what the chef had planned for us for dinner.

The meal was fabulous and the chef is really spoiling us!

This was from a few nights ago, but Mooch seems fascinated with the movement of the baseball game, so he needs to get up close and in person!

I do miss AlleyCat, but these 2 characters are really helping to heal my heart. I feel that I hit the jackpot with these two.

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?
