Home again, home again...

Back refreshed from holidays.
A trip to bonnie Scotland was just what was needed!

The famous William Wallace Monument at Stirling..

We found a hidden treasure in the Perthshire countryside..

This photo of Loch Lomond tells a story about the weather...

And I managed to track down a few fabric shops...
and of course I needed more fabric, who doesn't?

How could I resist?

It's Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry and Free Spirit Fabrics.

What to make.. what to make..?

'Tis herself!

Just got back from a great trip to Connemara,
where the panel from Irish Quilting magazine met up.

I drove through the village of Cong and surrounding area, famous for the film 'The Quiet Man'.
If ever I had to pick somewhere else to live, I think it would be Connemara!

This is the famous pub where Sean Thornton and Wil Danagher had the fight!

There are some beautiful places to see -

We met up with Frances Conroy, we were all taken with her old record player :)
