The Isle of Bute

Here my Scottish oddessy begins, i was working for a group of stitch fans teaching them the 'Exploring Velvet' workshop. I stayed with Alison in Rothesay for the first couple of days. This was the view from my bedroom window.

St Ninian's Bay, this is where i was teaching my class.

My version of a Scottish thistle, much to local disgust. We were so busy i didn't get time to take shots of the students work. They all did amazing work and the special lunches were memorable!!!

I had a couple of days off to explore the island, i couldn't miss the Bute highland games. This is the magnificent Bruce Robb *sigh*.

Back to St Ninian's to stay with Yennie and David.

Had a visit to Mount Stuart

Mount Stuart gardens were lovely.

Yennie's dog Buster, she was like a little ghost popping up every now and then to gaze at me spookily.

David was very proud of his onions.

Next stop Kenmore........

Lovely work, beautiful photographs. Easy to see why your students are inspired when surrounded by all this.
