easter hols

Well i had a lovely week off - did pretty much nothing, it was great - just not having to always be somewhere at a certain time and just going with the flow - so relaxing... Did a couple of walks - these two pictures are of the Heads of Ayr and Greenan Castle which are just to the south of Ayr - a friend had told me of a lovely walk from Burns Cottage right down to Greenan Beach and it really was - it's amazing what you discover on your own doorstep.

This was one of two finishes for the week - April Glooms part of the Bent Creek snappers - i have plans to make this into a pinkeep but as it is unlikely to be done for the end of this April i will put it away just now for next year lol! The other finish was for a fair and square round which i will show when it has been received. Worked on other stuff as well , so quite a productive week - now just finishing off Karen's piece for our round robin- should only take another couple of nights.
I also took in the baby sampler to the dressmaker for it to be made into a hanging - should get this back this weekend, can't wait to see what it will look like.. just need to get my dad to me a little hanger for it and it will be good to go - decided on having it made this way instead of framing for a couple of reasons, 1. thought it would look pretty nice and 2. it's a hell of a lot cheaper lol! It cost me £2.37 for the fabric and wadding and £7 to have it made , as opposed to probably nearer £50 to get it framed...will pop up a picture on it's return.
