Has been so busy for me and no time to post, partially because I have been busy crafting to sell, but also because I am busy making items for my daughters wedding this summer as well, the wedding invitations have taken a lot of time and now I’m onto the soap making for the individual wedding favours. However I have managed to finish my melting snowflakes shawl kit from Scheepjes which was one of my Christmas presents, I am really pleased with it, especially as this item is for me to keep for myself 🙂 , it’s gorgeous to wear- beautifully soft with the Scheepjes merino soft yarn and it feels very luxurious, I just love the beading decoration, I would recommend this kit as a present for any crochet lover!
I did fit in time for a weeks holiday in Scotland, Loch Long in Argyll, Bute, next door to Loch Lomond over the Easter holidays, which was beautiful (and lots of time for crochet) and the scenery was really inspiring, we were lucky to have warm and mainly dry weather for the week- which must be quite an achievement for a Scottish holiday at this time of the year. Our cabin was right on the shores of Loch Long and this was the view:
We travelled to a few places including the stunning Glencoe which was not far away and to this lovely place called Eilean Donan Castle which was a few hours drive away:
Nearby to us at Loch Long was the very pretty village of Luss, which definitely boasted some great places to go and eat as well, including the local pub/ hotel and The Village Rest bistro.
Back refreshed and full of ideas now ….. always though i would have enough time to do all these things once retired but there still aren’t quite enough hours in the day !
