His and hers ice-cream cones – we couldn’t resist treating ourselves!
On Monday Robb and I took a trip up to my Fife in our campervan. I’d made some more purses and brooches for Studio222, in Newburgh. Although the gallery has been stocking my accessories since last August, I’ve never had the chance to visit… So we decided to combine a visit with a mini tour around the Kingdom. It was such a lovely sunny day - the countryside was looking glorious! I was born in Fife and lived there until I was 19 so it’s always good to go ‘home’.
When we arrived at Studio 222, the owners Catriona and Sarah were sitting outside making the most of the sunshine. Inside was full of lovely stuff, great cards and gifts, and art. Upstairs there’s a mezzanine level, where Sarah and Catriona have a studio, and I was encouraged to go up and take a look – what a great place!
I came away with a handful of cards and a lovely wooden brooch, but there were so many tempting things there!
The rest of the week has been spent eating too much chocolate…It was my birthday on Tuesday. I’m 44. ’nuff said ;-)
The rain is back and I’ve been glad to be indoors knitting. I’m making an Arctic Tern for the Bird Yarns project, which aims to highlight the changing migration patterns of the birds. There are community knitters worldwide – all working from the same pattern and using the same local Ardalanish wool but using their imagination to make the legs and beak from recycled materials.
Although I’m working on my own it’s a very good feeling being part of a larger community of knitters, all working with a common purpose. My Tern is almost finished. He keeps falling on his behind with his feet in the air so I think some minor adjustments are necessary before he goes to Mull…
