I'm back from me hols.......

Thought I would show you the Riverside Walk alongside the River Spey not far from my brother's (where we stayed) in Nethy Bridge, Inverness. This is a spot where we scattered my dad's ashes. We now call in Bernard's beach!!! The first pic is to the right of the stoney bit and the third pic is to the left. The water really was that clear!

These are some of the purchases I made at Funky Kits in Elgin. They had all their wooden stamps half price. Couldn't resist. Actually I was very restrained. That may have had something to do with the fact that Ron was with me !!! This lot cost me £29.00 odd..... Good eh!
I bought this wool at a fab little shop in Craigallachie. It used to be in Aberlour but moved. The shop in Aberlour was very very tiny and the new one is a lot bigger. The curly wool is Wenslydale sheep wool with some blue dye for me to dye it. The little bits are some scraps she was selling.
We spent 3 days in Edinburgh where it absolutely pee'd down with rain the whole time. I did video our time spent there. Had great fun with the camcorder (it was my dad's but we have only just got to grips with it!). The filming I did was quite comical (if I say so myself). When we got back to Peter's (my brother) we took the disc out to put in his computer to watch it but we made the fatal mistake of not finalizing the disc and therefore lost the bleedin' lot. I must explain here that we have no manual for said camcorder.... We have now downloaded said manual from the internet (all 123 pages of it!).

We had another go at videoing with a tad more success (except for my camera work which is quite pooh actually!) except we can't get sound when viewing on the computer now. We watched it on Peter's computer and it was fine (with no sound) but I don't seem to be able to open the movies up on my lappy toppy. Still Ron is going to read (!) the manual and see why not.

Right that's enough now - hope I haven't bored you too much.

Off to do so knitting.

Thanks for stopping by.
