The simple things . . .

The last few days have been a bit mad here at Tweed Delights headquarters - I've been getting to grips with my new Facebook page, which is a whole new ball game for me. Good fun, but lots of head scratching to get it up and running, and tweaked they way I wanted it. Worth the effort though, I think :) Thanks to the lovely girls at work who nudged me into it and recommended my page to all their friends, how nice was that!!

So last night after spending a lot of intensive time on the computer, 'Little S' and I took a walk around our village and picked some of these lovely wild flowers along the way. They are called 'Lady's Smock' or alternatively the 'Cuckoo' flower as they come into bloom at the same time as the cuckoo bird makes an appearance. He's been making his appearance well known around our garden, with its distinctive cuckoo call - I love hearing it at this time of year.

As a result of the Facebook thingy, sort of indirectly, I got a request about making Harris Tweed cushions as a wedding gift. Here's the colour scheme I'm thinking of using - it's all a bit new to me, but I'm excited about the challenge and looking forward to a bit of embroidery as the couple's names will be on the front - I'll keep you updated! (I knew I'd find a special use for that gorgeous cream tweed - it has 'wedding' written all over it!)

Have a lovely Sunday :)

P.S. My Facebook Page is here if you'd, want to "like" it - I'm cringing now and almost under the table with embarrassment, self promotion is not something that comes naturally to us reserved Hebridean types!!

Thanks Wendy! We live on the edge of the moor - not sure if that's a natural habitat for them, perhaps. It's a lovely sound :)

Ugh, Facebook. I am still resisting. I hope to continue. ;) (Yours looks good, though!)

Can't wait to see that custom order. It sounds great!
