A few sheets a day and we are happy. We are blessed that we have a little helper...not sure if Mickey is a help or a hindrance but he is quite happy basking in the sun guarding the rusty sheets.
Once boiled for a few moments, I leave to cool overnight and then strain it back into the original bottles and relabel.
I like to give them a fancy fabric topper, they look so nice lined up in the cupboard and also make a nice hostess gift.
In the evenings I am still working here and there on a craft project. At the moment I am working on a crochet shawl and enjoying the soothing rhythm of the pattern.
It is a pattern that I found in old copy of Mollie Makes, I am so glad that I kept it.
We have had a trip to Stornoway for a food shop but it always nice to have a stroll around the small town and take in the views around the port/harbour. The boats are always a joy to sit and watch both the ones for pleasure and the working boats. There is an area that is designated for the necessary equipment needed on the fishing boats, that I find quite fascinating. So many stories to tell if only it could talk.
The shadows in the water enhancing some of the already spectacular views.
A real delight to have a stroll and enjoy the calmness of the sea which we know can change in a heartbeat and cause havoc to the brave sailors/fisherman who battle the elements for us.
A very warm welcome to new followers I do hope you enjoy my little adventures through life. I do thank you for your visit here and your uplifting comments. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
See you soon.
Sorry forgot to add that the sand was been dug out of the harbour at the Port of Ness as there was a build up. Apparently, this is done every 3/4 years to enable boats to be able to get in. The sand is dug up and put the other side of the wall.
