Over the summer I have been collecting small white shells from my local beach as and when I found them.
I saw a lovely make on Blueberry Heart's Blog and I fell in love with it and asked if it was ok if I made myself a version of this...
Shell and Pearl Heart by Blueberry Heart.
I have just returned from a few days away on the west coast of Scotland. We were overlooking the beach and it was just so relaxing. We did choose to go the week where the tail end of a hurricane was passing though...
...but imagine my delight when I spotted this cove with a full beach of small white shells just feet from our place. Yay! I hit the motherlode.
Bag full! Can't wait to get cracking with this little make and it will be a nice memento of our break.
I did manage to make a few bits when I was away, I have been making for swaps mainly so I can't show those but I can show these...
A couple of knitted purses for Annie's Christmas Shoe Box Appeal ~ I'll pop these in the post this week chick. This is a really simple pattern, if anyone want's a copy give me a shout and I'll pass it on.
I won't bore you silly with holiday photos, but I will share these two. My hubbie and I are ardent film fans and whilst staying in the Dumfries and Galloway area we decided to follow the Wicker Man trail.
It's a film we both love, a cult classic from 1973 (the year I was born). The story is set on the fictional Scottish Island of Summerisle but was infact filmed in various locations in and around the Dumfries and Galloway area.
In true tourist style we ponced around the villages with maps and leaflets and snapped a few pics in prominent places from the film:
forgive the gimpy poses
Right I'm off for a catch up on all your blogs and hopefully I will be able to comment, it seems blogger is playing funny beggars again!
