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.


  1. Your stitching looks perfect! That is a cute pattern. I think having the sampler made into a hanger is just the perfect idea! I look forward to seeing it complete!

  2. Maursie,
    Your finishes are lovely...wonderful stitching!

  3. Maureen,the scenery in your pics of Heads of Ayr and Greenan Castle is beautiful. I just love the rugged wild coast that hasn't been spoiled. We still have some unspoiled coastline down here in Devon too.
    Lovely photography, glad you enjoyed your week off.

  4. It has been received. And it is fabulous!
    Hope yours arrives soon. They said 5 days so it should be there early next week. Fingers crossed.


Thanks for stopping by!
