Sadly the light in the cottage is not good so the stunning colours are not reflected in the photos. Hangers were also painted and stamped to go with them.
I am back to working on Bertie's blanket and have sourced the yarn for one for Honey. I have had so much fun browsing books and patterns for my next grab and go project. I have also been gifted some beautiful yarn in some warm and vibrant colours so I am going to start on a cowl.
The weather has certainly been changeable with some snow showers and icy roads making driving quite slow getting across the moor. The Ferries have been cancelled on and off all week, there are more cancellations tomorrow. I am always thankful for my large store cupboard which I will restock once the Ferries are back to normal.
I am having fun working on my Christmas scrapbook and have finished about 15 pages so far. The photos I had printed at a shop in town, the more that were printed the less the cost per print. As I wanted them quickly so that I could make a start I did the 1 hour service.
Its like going on holiday again, I am enjoying reliving some wonderful moments of our time away.
We have been invited to a few Burn's Nights events over the weekend but no definite plans have been made as yet. What are your plans for the weekend? Whatever it is, I hope you all enjoy it and have a great weekend.
See you soon.
What beautiful shawls. The colours are so evocative of Scotland.ReplyDelete
Your shawls are beautiful as are all your creations.ReplyDelete
Have a lovely weekend.
Love the shawls could do with one now! We now have heavy rain forecast for tomorrow. Happy Burns night what ever you decide to do. There is a haggis lurking around here but I shall be having steak.ReplyDelete
When our son was small, we kept loads of photos in scrapbooks. So nice to look back on them.ReplyDelete
Your shawls look lovely. Perhaps you could photograph them again another day when the light is better. Our weather is cold and sunny one day, then cold and dull and damp the next. Today was cool and breezy and we went for a walk on the prom. Your scrapbook looks great! I wouldn't have the patience. Best, Jane xReplyDelete
Those shawls are beautiful - I love blue. I plan to do some baking, visiting with daughters and church. I need to start marking some inventory for the antique show in a few weeks. Enjoy your weekend too.ReplyDelete
That's a pretty spectacular finish! Beautiful, just beautiful! I've never heard of Burns day... or the Iolaire. The US public school system has let me down. We're celebrating our Christmas this weekend. A long story there, I think.ReplyDelete
Your shawls are beautiful. I love the colors. I haven't worked on a scrapbook in ages and I have two that only have a few pages to be finished!ReplyDelete
You put me to shame . . . I am so far behind on our family scrapbooks that I should be made to stand in the corner until I'm ready to get with it again.ReplyDelete
I love the colors in your shawls, they are so rich, like emeralds and deep water. Absolutely gorgeous.
Stay warm sweet friend.
The "Isles of Lewis" shawls are quite lovely.ReplyDelete
I've had our Christmas pictures developed but so far other tasks have kept me from scrapbooking them. I'll wait for a week of bad weather then I'll be forced to stay home.
You are amazing how fast you got those gorgeous shawls done, I am sure the recipients will wear them a lot. You're so good to make those memory albums, I should do that but unfortunately am not as organized as you are. Our plans for the weekend? Going to pick up a new dog, 8 mo. old.. tomorrow! :-)ReplyDelete
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
Everything, my friend.
We are doing just that this weekend, because it is COLD! : )
The shawls look great. You did a beautiful job on them.ReplyDelete
My weekend plans are to finish a couple of books I've been reading and watch Newhart (someone posted all the episodes on youtube and I've been binge watching them.)
You certainly know how to make the most of wintry weather - your shawls, hangers and scrapbooks are lovely ways to make the most of time spent by the fireside. I plan to do a couple of walks with the dog, lots of reading and, in between, I will fit in a little crocheting - that should keep me out of mischief.ReplyDelete
Mama, I love the shawls and even more I love the idea of special hangers to go with them. And I had a giggle that on 25th January you could call a post "Finally a finish for 2019". Your industry knows no bounds.ReplyDelete
The colours in your shawls are gorgeous. Just the thing to keep you warm in the chilly weather we're having. XReplyDelete
The shawls are lovely and I like the hangers. You always give everything you make that extra little touch such as the bows and the stamped text on the hangers. Wishing you a cozy weekend. I've just started to crochet a blanket so I hope to be picking that up to do a few rows of an evening.ReplyDelete
You have been busy. You'll enjoy looking back at the scrapbooks and remember all the good times you had.ReplyDelete
They are beautiful. Have you knitted them to sell, to keep or are they to be gifts. I love how you painted the coat hangers. That had never occurred to me to that. We just replaced a load of plastic ones with wooden ones but they are not as good as the old fashioned ones that we threw out a million years ago... hindsight is a wonderful thin.ReplyDelete
The shawls are fabulous and just what's needed for the cold weather, brrrr, it looks freezing in your photos of the moor. The scrapbook of your travels will be lovely to look through in years to come, so many memories held in those pages.ReplyDelete
Is there a pattern on line for those shawls? They are gorgeous, and I love the idea of painting the hanger to go with them.ReplyDelete
Lovely memories in your scrapbook. The shawls are beautiful, I love the colours:)ReplyDelete
The shawls are just gorgeous, especially the colors you chose. Did you use a pattern? I love scrapbooks. They are such a nice way to store treasured memories.ReplyDelete
Oh I hope you post some pictures, from Burns' Night!!! As I don't know much about it.ReplyDelete
I've heard of Haggis. And some young people I follow, on IG, were out tasting whiskey last night, for it. :-)
Lovely creations and scrapbook !!!!ReplyDelete
Have a cozy Sunday !
Love the shawls and their colours. The scrapbook is such a good idea, I have tried to do them but never keep them up.ReplyDelete
Nice shawls you made with interesting colours. Scrapbooking is fun and yes it rekindles our memories. Phil and I were at a meeting at church this a.m. for how to help bring children...and other people..to Christ. Interesting ideas. Then we went out for lunch. Now that I've warmed up, since it's a fochurch day, I'm going to make cookies later. Have a blessed weekend and stay warm!ReplyDelete
Should have been a FOGGY day not a fochurch day!Delete
The shawls are lovely even if we could not see the vibrant colors, Lorraine. And, the scrapbook will contain many happy holiday memories I know. My weekend is spent here at home "tidying up" as is finding more things not needed or used that can be donated so others may find them useful. My husband is participating in a winter field day for ham radio operators and away Fri-Sun.ReplyDelete
Your projects are wonderful. The shawls are so sweet and I'm sure warm. My daughter just knitted me a shawl while she was visiting. She finished it on the train ride home. So I'm looking forward to a package any day!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you have stocked your pantry for winter and hopefully soon the ferries will be bringing in supplies. ♥
The shawls are so beautiful ! I like the colors as they are ! I always have frozen food at least for 2 weeks, we live rather far away from the next shop ! And I hate going shopping every day !ReplyDelete
Your shawls are so beautiful and I love the hangers too. Take care in the ice.ReplyDelete
The scrapbook is turning out lovely!ReplyDelete
The shades of green and blue in your shawls are lovely, and I like the hangers too.ReplyDelete
It's always nice to relive memories as you make a scrapbook / album.
I enjoyed seeing all of your photographs on this post.
All the best Jan
the shawls are lovely and your scrap books are delightful!! I bet reliving the trip is tons of fun :)ReplyDelete
I think the colors came out very well, and the scrapbook will be great to rekindle memories of good times.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shawls and their colours are very nice. Lovely memories kept safe in the scrapbook.ReplyDelete
Carissima amica hai realizzato un lavoro uncinettoso veramente perfetto e armonioso, bellissimo accostamento di colori 😍 un abbraccio!!ReplyDelete
I know nothing about the technicalities of stamping and scrap booking but I wonder what kind of ink you used to stamp your coathangers? I would love to know which is the best ink that will not rub off onto clothing that is hung on those hangers. Do you varnish over the hangers once the stamping is done?ReplyDelete
Your beautiful hangers are the perfect finishing touch - the frosting on the cake.ReplyDelete
