I bought this flower this morning when we were driving back from Edinburgh. We have a little purple corner outside our patio doors and I thought it would fit in nicely as we had just lost a plant with recent frosts.
I’ve been making a bit of progress on Flock but not as much as I should have. I’m now onto part two and part three came out yesterday. It’s a fun piece which I’m glad I decided to stitch.
I would have been further on but I’ve started a couple of new things and then changed my mind. I was going to stitch a pincushion but decided to make one from Week’s Dye Works wool felt instead. I’m hoping to sew it this afternoon.
I’ve also been knitting this little rabbit which is gradually coming together. This morning I bought some wool to knit something completely out of my normal knitting zone. Hopefully I will have some of it to show in my next post.
This fox was very close to my husband when he was working in Edinburgh a week or so ago. If you look at the photo in my last post which shows the side of a large building as you look up to the castle – he was working there and this little fellow came to visit most days.
On the subject of wild life, this little one loves to watch the birds in our back garden and this photo shows her totally engrossed.
I’ll finish with a photo of a lovely little plant we bought a few weeks ago. I can’t remember it’s name but I couldn’t resist it as it’s in my favourite colour.
Finally a little Scottish word to finish with – “CUDDIE” – I wonder how many of you have heard this term or know what it is. Look below for the answer.
Thanks for stopping by today and for your recent comments. Have a good weekend wherever you may be.
(A “CUDDIE” is a horse or donkey. Usually called an “auld cuddie” if someone has put a bet on a horse in a race and it loses.)
