Well am I all mixed up with the days or what??? Upon wakening up this morning it seemed like ages to fix on what day this is, is that age, not working, being away, more than likely a combination of all.
Thank you for your lovely comments yesterday and interest in our holiday, I have a few more pictures for you at the end of the post.
Now this is Friday Oldie day where we share something handmade at an earlier stage in our crafting journey. This little bit of fun was started by Erika of Snappy Crafts and there are quite a few of us playing along, so why not join in, it can be anything not just cards as long as it's hand made.
Now this is most certainly an early card, I don't think I had a die cutting machine and used my trimmer to give a scalloped edge to the paper. It's a Sarah Kaye image and coloured with Promarkers, colouring is very basic, I've improved somewhat.....I hope. It's a sweet little image and I don't think I've used it since.
Now for the holiday snaps, with Rachel and Mary in mind;
This is taken from the little ferry going over to Bressay, it was the most beautiful hot sunny day and a lovely sail, it only took seven minutes. So, Rachel, I would maybe seen some of your work in the Heritage Centre. I am pleased it brought back lovely memories for you. Lots of interesting history to the small island.
Alistair took this photo when he went south and I did the shops. This is Sumburgh Head and it's famous lighthouse, built by Robert Stevenson, grandfather of Robert Louis Stevenson, of Treasure Island fame. Shetland's oldest lighthouse and a listed building. There is a nature reserve there, and my goodness look at that coastline, I think Alistair was eyeing it up for coast steering.
Inside the lighthouse there is a little cafe. Mary you mentioned that you enjoyed the Shetland drama on TV, as I do, so this is the lighthouse that is used in some of the stories, however it is not a hotel, although there is accommodation around it. Has anyone else watched the Shetland stories, I love Douglas Henshal, but he is totally different to his character in the book
Hope your still with me I know it's a long post, but that's me finished now.
I hope you enjoy your day and have some nice plans for the weekend. Don't know yet if we will do anything much, holidays are tiring so maybe just chill.
Take care of yourselves
