Had a wonderful visit from Aileen at Aileen Clarke Crafts (on my blog roll) & her family on Thursday. I don't suppose I thought I'd ever meet anybody from this wonderful blog world I dip into with great regularity & it was like we'd known each other for ages.
We talked about lots of things & it was all over too soon, but she was v helpful about promoting myself more by joining various groups on Flikr (it looks scary but I'll give it a go!) & linking to my website. She made me realise that I can't go on for much longer on my ancient sewing machine, I owe it to myself & my work to use the best tools I can. She gave me a wonderful bag of shining bits & pieces & I've already made a square for that day from them....might even stretch to a collage!
Can't believe I didn't take a pic of us but her lovely other half did, I think & she might let me have a copy for the blog archives. I look forward to reading all about her visit to Skye when she gets home.
No other pics today, either as my D & youngest have gone on a walk to the Point of Sleat on this beautiful day. With the camera & the dog. As it's such a lovely day there probably won't be any customers in the studio, they'll be scrambling up hills, so I basically have the day to myself, til the middlest needs picking up from work (poor thing, working in a hotel kitchen - good lad) this late afternoon.
I do, however, have to remember to put the chicken in to roast this afternoon....!
Decided to add this pic of old. Doesn't the center bit of background grass really pop out at you? An intersting optical illusion.
