I have updated the Lemon Poppy Shoppe. I am going to be out and about tomorrow with Pete. It is a pain having one car....so on his days off I need to go and do things. So...have a look and see my new stuff.
Nan is a cross stitcher from Philadelaphia and boy is she talented!!! She has a slideshow of her past works on her blog. If you want some eye candy pop over and see. I met Nan in blogland and she is super nice. She sent me a huge box of aida cloth and wouldn't accept the money for postage!!! She also sells on Etsy. She has super cute bookmarks for only $8!!!
I have been sewing again...did you notice that I haven't found a tutorial for today on CSC? I have done a few primitive stitchin's that I hope will be liked. I have also done a doll with a 4th of July twist....I know...I am too early!!! (truth is...only realised that it was still April a few minutes ago.....) Just gettin' in early...lol. So...check out the Glory River Primitives shoppe on the 1st.
Pete and I went the different direction today and went to Crathes Castle. We also went to the Milton of Crathes for the best scones ever!!! So I will just list the photos and let you drool. It was colder today though..and I didn't wear warm enough clothes!!! I got Jordan lots of plain fabric today...it is going to be great...I have drawn up a little throw quilt for him to make. So....onto the photos...hope you enjoy.
It felt like spring really was here. So...Pete said let's go to Cullen to play some golf.This is him...he is so cute...well I can say that...we have been married for 19 years in 15 days!!! We drove through Banff and we stopped at Duff House for a picture. Isn't it beautiful!!! We then drove onto Cullen. There is a patchwork shop there. I bought some fabric for a bag...and some fabric for Jordan. I also got a crochet hook to try making a floor mat. Then on to the curiosity shop and bought a cute little ink container...that will be a great little vase. This is another view of the village. Notice the big viaduct bridges? I love them too! I love Cullen and the people are so nice there...it still has it's small town charm!!! See I really do love the bridges!!! This is looking down onto the harbour. Scotland is full of these little harbours. You should see it on a rough day...today it was perfectly still. This is looking at the rooftops. I am sorry if I am boring you all...but I thought this would be a great picture. These are the fishermen's cottages in Cullen. This house is built into the bridge...there is another one on the other side of the road. These are the houses in Portknockie near Cullen. The whole village has houses just like these!!! They are beautiful and the village is picture perfect. This is on the way home near Rosehearty. Imagine living in that house....it is awesome.
Pete and I had the nicest day together. Albeit for the two crazy drivers that nearly got us killed.
I am a 42 year old stay at home wife and mother. My boys are 13 and 11 and are becoming 'mature'...so my 13 year old says. My life revolves around my family, photography and friends. We are all Australians and this is our second time living in Scotland.
