Waxwings

posted in: General

So excited to look out of the window early on Monday morning and spot these beautiful birds perched at the top of the neighbour’s fir tree. Grabbed the nearest camera that I could lay my hands on, as I did not want to miss out on recording their visit. Hence the very mediocre photos!! Waxwings are such a rare sight in this part of the world.

 

Snowdrops and seed heads.

The recent stormy weather kept me indoors for a day or two and I decided to do a bit of printing by hand. It is a while since I last produced any cards in this medium but felt inspired by the magnificent display of snowdrops currently flowering at Innerpeffray Library and the winter seed heads that I collected from the track nearby. Each print is slightly different as a result of the technique that I use. This makes each card a unique, original print and as I only produce a few at a time, they are also limited editions, signed and numbered. They will be going on sale at the Library very soon, to raise more funds for the tree planting fund.

Out and about.

Favourite views from recent dog walks. We live in such a spectacular area and are so lucky to be able to experience these views on a regular basis. Despite the distinct lack of enthusiasm in the facial expressions of two dogs, they do love their walks and the snow. Just don’t like having to sit still and be photographed!

 

More sewing!

Into making cushions at the moment, adding three more to the ‘day bed’ decor. Using lots more Harris Tweed in colours that blend beautifully with the peacock feather curtain fabric.Also making use of some wonderful glazed pottery buttons, all purchased on Lewis in anticipation of a use, and some of the beautiful wooden ones made by my talented husband.
