Where Skye meets the Sky!

Last I left you we were in the gardens of the Dunvegan Castle as we continue our trip with The Crewel Work Company Tour. Please do follow their blog which is the first one on my blog roll. They have been doing some exciting things lately, like another all England trip and recreating beautiful embroideries.

Just gorgeous it is! With the waterfalls (and there were several of them!) I guess with all the rain in Scotland, that it’s just a natural…with no pun intended. Hydrangeas is every color imaginable. So peaceful and relaxing to be in the gardens.

Notice the bumble bee in the lower left side of the picture! This photograph was shot by my sistah, Meredith Willett and she was nice enough to share with me.

It was time to move on and as always I could have stayed there longer. We were headed to Waternish and the magic begins with the Fairy Bridge. It is actually a peninsula that was originally planned as a fishing village.

There are artist studios and of course SkyesSkins, the only tannery in Scotland… and that’s where we were headed next!

A most fascinating tour through their operation! Meredith is checking out what skins she wanted to add to her collection. There was a gorgeous grey skin with curl that I fell in love with, but it went home with another lucky lady on our tour. The skin color was a perfect match to her dog Daisy! so she needed to have it.

Another fabulous day on the Isle of Skye. Tomorrow will be a travel day as we head to Mallaig via ferry for the Harry Potter Train Ride. So excited!

These are my morning supervisors! Notice the cartoons of Mooch on my wall?! Thank you to the talents of Nancy, the owner of New Creation Picture Framing in Pasadena, who never ceases to amaze me with her creativity!

About Vicky

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?
