I'm back, even tho I haven't been away!

I think it must be the recent mugginess that's eaten some grey cells, altho it was beautiful early this week! The older I get, the quicker time seems to fly by. Thank for your words of encouragement & I'm glad to see some postcards are arriving - I'll get the last batch off in the week (unless more join in thanks to Ro Bruhn!)


I've been doing  little order



but something had to give - one of my squares didn't make it :(



Bits box, stitched rusted paper, mixed fabric & paper, woven end pieces & decades in packaging...it's getting so close!

I did go to the local craft & garden fair yesterday, well, I had to check out the competition! It's set in the most beautiful of gardens & even tho there was no light as the mist was on the floor - forgive the odd focusing, the camera couldn't cope - I took some pics.Just glance thru, I wanted to give a feel of the place despite the heavy sky.
 The last one is the ferry arriving at the pier, I had to darken it a bit but it really was like that!

Gorgeous place, marvelous collage as usual, like the woven looking piece very much. I received your post card yesterday and it's up on the blog along with a link to your birthday request as well...xox

Hi Emma
Just got your postcard yesterday - love it!
I'm posting mine to you tomorrow, then we are off to your side of the country for a few days R&R before Gardening Scotland. Stornoway though, not Skye.

Looks as if you have been busy! Love the photos especially the steps flanked by the clematis (I guess, what a beautiful place.

The photos are beautiful and I like this set of squares even with one missing, maybe it can arrive late....probably like my postcard will if I don't get started! Your little order is lovely too, love the seahorse.

Your weekend sounds fun. Far prettier than mine - which was spent in the loft until the heat drove us out. I'd far rather have been at the garden/craft fair. It looks lovely.

Many thanks for your card which arrived safely all the way from Skye.

You certainly live in a beautiful part of the world - I've been to Scotland but didn't get to Skye - maybe one day...
