The Great Tapestry of Scotland

Hello Hello! I have been busy doing and so have not had much time for blogging but I thought you might enjoy the wonderful exhibition I went to on Saturday. This is a very photo-heavy post for which I make no apologies. I could have taken twice as many! It was The Great Tapestry of Scotland which was being exhibited at the Scottish Parliament. "The brainchild of bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith, historian Alistair Moffat and artist Andrew Crummy, the Great Tapestry of Scotland is…

The Great Tapestry of Scotland

I've been wanting to tell you all about this exciting project since I first became involved back in May, but there hasn't really been much to see until recently. I first heard about it on the radio one morning in Spring on the Today programme. James Naughtie was talking to Alexander McCall Smith about a project to make a tapestry of the whole history of Scotland which would be stitched by groups of volunteers. Here's what Alexander has to say about it on the official website: “The recording…

The Great Tapestry of Scotland

After my labours finishing the quilt I rewarded myself today with an artist's date trip out. In contrast to yesterday the day was grey and wet but no matter as I spend it mainly indoors immersed in the colourful history of Scotland. The Great Tapestry of Scotland was on display in Cockenzie House, seen above. This house itself is part of Scottish history, dating from the 17th Century and starting life as a Jacobean mansion.

Sun and Stitches

Today was a perfect day of warm sun and a cool breeze as we headed off to Goolwa - a historic river port just 35 minutes from home and also where our dear friends Rosie and Tom live. There little home has breathtaking views of the river with the occasional steam train chugging past as well. In just a few short years Tom has managed to fill a small space with all sorts of veggies and flowers along with a scattering of Rosie's wonderful mosaic work…….. Friends Janie and John joined us as well…
