I also have several more cut, pinned and ready to sew.
Our daughter has now moved into her new home that they had built so it was a joy to hear our little Grandaughters voice Honey asking me to make her a table cover for her bedroom. She selected the fabric and trim and it was quickly made up for her. I also added a mini noticeboard using the same fabric.
Saturday I always prepare our meal for Sunday which this week was roast chicken with all the trimmings. I also made quiches and a chocolate cake.
The quiches were made using the eggs from our own chickens and spring onions fresh from the garden. It is such a delight when we use things we have grown ourselves. Sadly, we will never become self sufficient but we try to grow some things ourselves.
We do keep having showers and even the odd downpour of rain so you will need a rain coat but it is nice to have a stroll along the machair by Eoropie which is ablaze with colour at the moment. Come along with me...
The ever changing colours of the machair, the sea, the moorland as we go through the seasons adds to the joy of living here. The natural beauty and colour is reflected in the making of the tweed which is made on the looms in many of the crofters outbuildings. The smell of the peat burning in the fireplaces and wafting up the chimneys permeating around the village also adds to the beauty. All of the senses are treated with the rich majesty of living here. We are rich and have been fortunate to have found our forever home. Are you still on your adventures through life or have you found your forever home yet?
Take care and stay safe in these uncertain and very strange times.
See you soon.
