Several trips were made to the recycle centre, with a lot of the things finding new homes which was good. We are still a long way off making a start on the renovations out there, concentrating on the main house first. It is a joy to see the building like this...
Our recent tour took us around Europie, which is about one mile away from the Butt of Lewis. There in the middle of a croft is St Moluag's Church.
Church services are only held in the warmer months as there is no water or electricity in the building. There is a fence both side of the walkway to keep it clear from sheep wandering over it.
It is believed to be a 13th Century temple. There is certainly a lot of speculation about the origins, one tradition believes that St Ronan founded the church before going on to the Isle of Rona. It is certainly a beautiful place to visit and one of great peace and calm.
The lighting is by oil and candle.
Can you imagine a Carol Service, what a beautiful place to come together and celebrate.
Not much crafting is been done here at the moment we have both been busy outside, painting. If it doesn't move it gets painted. We are hoping our little cottage will be looking its best by the end of the Summer with its newly painted exterior. The plan then is to finish off the interior once the weather changes, one little step at a time.
My only craft achievement in the past couple of days is some tags in readiness for Birthday gifts, made using some oddments/scraps of Harris Tweed. Rather fitting I thought.
Finally, just because...
See you soon.
