I can't believe it's one month on from being at The Emroiderers'Guild Summer School (Scottish Branches) at Stirling. Anyone would think that I hadn't enjoyed myself. Completely the opposite!!! I had a great time this year with Louise Baldwin as my tutor. I've loved her work since I did my City & Guilds so it was great to finally meet her and be in her class. She was brilliant! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the results of my labour can be seen in the picture above. We were working from our own source. I chose to work from my photos of the May Island which I visited in June. I can feel a series coming on!!! .....
I hope to take some close up photos which I'll post sooner rather than later.
That's it for now,

Holiday snaps 2010...

Some of the wildlife...
They're back!    Same as last year.
This one is just for show. Honest it's not real.
Spotted on the Isle of Arran, Scotland
The lovely old paddle steamer Waverley.
Some fine inspiration.
Interesting flotsam!

More from Arran...the unreal variety!! Pretty cute all the same.
Imagine my surprise when I found this on the shore.
"M" it definitely is.
