Time Out :)

Hi - I'm taking a little time out from my blog while I have some 'family time' and enjoy a certain little person's birthday celebrations this weekend - back soon :)

Yum Yum

A shopping trip to our local town of Stornoway this morning put a halt to any plans of 'tweedying' today - I seem to be taking a while to get back up to full production, but maybe that's a good thing! One more order to make up before I decide where to pick up where I left off.

Just before I jumped on the bus and headed back home after my shopping trip, I popped into this lovely new Deli which has opened up on our high street. It's great to see new local businesses like this opening up and keeping the town vibrant and fresh - what a great little shop! I hope the girl who is running it does well. I spotted some lovely olives and purchased a few for 'Little S' instead of the usual stash of sweets! He loves his olives - I'll have to take him into this shop as a treat soon as his birthday is coming up. He really wants a hamster but . . . . :D

Lovely Start to the Day!

I usually try to squeeze in a walk out the moor road at some point in the day, but decided to take an early morning stroll today. The colours of the moor are beautiful at the moment, with the heather in full bloom - a complete contrast to the stunning mountains of Austria, but I still love this flat, rugged landscape of ours. Working on a couple of orders for laptop sleeves this week which are a little overdue, so I'm afraid I won't be able to show any new creations - hopefully next week I'll get a chance to get the creative juices going once again.

Until then it's nose to the grindstone, so I'd better get off and do some 'tweedying' - it's lovely to be back online again! I'm sure that chance meeting with our new minister at the weekend had something to do with my internet connection miraculously sorting itself out, hehe! (He did ask me where I usually sit in church - awkward silence ensued, but he seemed very nice all the same!)

Bye for Now and hope to catch up with some fellow crafty bloggers through the week :)

P.S. Forgot to say that my online shops are back up and running again!

Back to 'Tweedie-Land'!

Back after a fab holiday in Austria, but also to a slightly wonky internet connection (or more specifically a wonky wireless/laptop problem!) I've taken the opportunity to take an extra week's holidays, get the boys settled back to school (today) and hopefully get the problem sorted by the beginning of next week. Here's some lovely calm and beautiful shots of Austria while I'm getting myself back into gear - think sparkling clear water and wonderful clean mountain air - fabulous!!

Back with some 'tweedie' news soon, I hope! :)
