Where did my internet go??

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my blog!  I have been for gone over a month now, and let me tell you, I missed blogging!  I missed crafting.  I missed you guys!

First of all, we had a great summer holiday.  Two weeks with the family in the Midwest, and it was HOT.  That just enabled us to go swimming every day, lay in front of the fan (something we never get a chance to do in Scotland), eat ice lollies every day, and sometimes twice a day! 

Second, we moved.  Succesfully, or at least, it is done!  The house sale was final the beginning of August, and it was such a pain and so stressful, I couldn't be more glad it is over.  All of the boxes are unpacked, and I LOVE our new house.  I will post some pictures of my craft room as soon as I feel it is clean enough.  I am still trying to get organized, without spending any money............

Here are a few pictures of the house though, it is a stone farmhouse in the Scottish Highlands.  Gorgeous.

So what if when it rains the water turns murky/golden from the peat in the soil.  So what if we have to turn the heating on in August because it is grey and cold.  It is relaxation itself.  Today the sun is shining and everything in my little world seems perfect.  Except........


I have to got to the library each and every day to check my email, and since I teach online, things are difficult.  But still, it is only a hiccup on the road, and should be sorted by the end of August.  At least, that is what I am telling myself.  So my blog posts will be scattered here and there, but I'll try to get one out every Friday, since creative/crafty/wooly Friday is my very favorite blog day of the week.

Once final note, to tie into kntiting/crafting.  I finally have a local wool/craft shop.  It is right in the local high street, and full of the most gorgeous wool I have ever seen.  An added bonus is that they offer classes.  The first one (for me) is in September, and it is wool felting a bag.  I can't wait, I've already signed up!

Take care everyone!

  1. Its amazing where you live, the house and the environment.

  2. I might be willing to give up internet to enjoy that beautiful setting. Good luck getting your internet figured out and settling in to the new home.

  3. Oh my, I would gladly give up internet to live in such a lovely old home with such a view! Enjoy the solitude while it lasts, you could pretend you are on holidays;o) - the end of August will come around very fast!! Lovely photos.

  4. Your new home is absolutely stunning! oh! I love it!! Good luck with the rest of your settling in and we'll be here waiting to see your projects when you're ready!

  5. I yearn to live in a place like that ... it looks so beautiful and peaceful! A place like that is made for fiber hobbies!

  6. Oh, I want to come and live with you. When we traveled through Britain and Wales, we saw views like this (only a tiny bit encroached upon by new housing - darn the people who do it), and my heart knew the lands that had built its DNA. I want to sit outside on your step and just hold still. As if that would last long. You live in a fairy tale.


I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
