Dingwall Canal

It’s a beautiful evening along the canal in Dingwall.  I met an elderly man on the canal path yesterday who showed me the overhang where he said he saw otters yesterday morning.    I think I’m going to be spending a lot more time on the canal path hoping to see the otters.  I’ve never seen them in the wild even when I lived in Thurso I apparently just kept just missing them.    In the meantime here are some pictures I took to keep me going until the otters appear.

Two sewing days in a row

What bliss.  I’ve spent most of the last two days stitching my main 2015 project, an embroidered picture of Rogie Falls near Strathpeffer, Ross shire.   I started it at the beginning of the year and I’m still only about half way through.     I sometimes wish I’d chosen a medium which meant quicker progress than embroidering with single strand Achor threads!     Never mind getting two days together means that I’ve been able to move the project on and now I’m really excited about it again.
