Sometimes I forget that not everyone has Instagram, so here’s what I’ve been up to lately that never made it into a blog post.
My 5 A Day tote bag is in BBC Good Food magazine this month! It’s on the first page of a big foodie gifts feature as well so pretty exciting. I had to mock-up that product image in about ten minutes after I was phoned up. Panic Photoshopping is always fun.
More Photoshop fun – I live for your amusement. This is GHOST HOSPITAL episode one where this poor guy had an accident on his journey to a customer so she sent him back for surgery. He’s feeling much better now. If you ever have an problems with your purchases do let me know as they’re usually fixable.
My Spoonflower swatches were piling up untidily, so I finally sat down and went through them all. I kept samples of all the base fabrics and some favourite designs for my swatch book and then chopped the rest up for my sort-of quilt. I am determined to get some sewing done before the Christmas tree takes over my dining/sewing table.
My dad came to visit recently and we went over to Loch Lomond Shores for a look around. It was not the greatest weather, but it still always looks pretty.
We also had a look around the Maid of the Loch, one of the old paddle steamers that is being restored. It was a bit depressing as there’s so much work needed and only a volunteer group to do it. If you’re ever nearby you should pop in and have a look and leave a donation.
I have never seen a white Coo before. They very kindly posed for my photo so I didn’t even need to get out of the car.
We had dinner at the Riverhill Courtyard one night and it was really really good, even though we ordered a bit madly, being tired and not hugely hungry. We couldn’t even manage a proper dessert, but they picked us out these tiny cakes, which were perfect.
The weather here has not been great lately, but every now and again, something like this happens.
