We are back from our lovely holiday. We stayed at a Haven park on the beautiful west coast of Scotland. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and had glorious sunshine every day. This was our luxury caravan -
And this was the amazing view from our decking -
The island in the distance is the Isle of Arran. The sun set behind the island each night and the sky turned the most amazing colours - unfortunately my photography skills weren't enough to capture it in it's true beauty!
I showed you in my last post some of the cross stitch I was planning to do while I was away. The seat above became my seat for the week and I sewed here some afternoons and also in the evenings (we had full sun out here until sunset around 8.20pm).
I had started a cross stitch project before we left for our holiday so I decided to take that along too and finish it. Be warned though - it's a Christmas project! Here it is finished - and in need of a good iron!
This is a little Christmas tree sampler, the pattern is from last year's Christmas Cross Stitcher Magazine. I plan to frame this in a hoop and hang it up over Christmas. I will be sad to have to take it down each year though!
As soon as I finished this one I was keen to start on another. So I started stitching the sunshine chart -
A little stitching here and there, stolen moments enjoying the view....
And within a couple of days I was finished!
This one will be going on Joshua's bedroom wall.
Unfortunately I didn't get round to starting the other cross stitch that I'd taken with me but I'll work on that in the evenings now we're home.
Here are a couple of my favourite photos (in addition to the ones above) from our holiday
|Fun filled days|
Can you believe this is a caravan?!
This was our cosy sitting room.
So now we're home, I've tackled all the washing and ironing. Lots of lovely new fabric has been ordered from the UK and USA....and I visited a couple of fabric shops this morning....I'll share some pics of my lovely new fabrics soon ;)
