Scottish Adventures

Last week, in the half term break, I flew up to Scotland to visit my fellow Stylecraft Blogstar Lucia. I stayed with Lucia and her family last summer and was really looking forward to my return visit. Here are some of the highlights!

πŸ’œFeeling a bit naughty eating a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer for breakfast! πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ Getting far more excited than I probably should about seeing snow from the plane! πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ Lots of attention from Thorin, Lucia's magnificent Maine Coon cat πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ A visit to the Artist Textiles exhibition at New Lanark. πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ Being given a printed copy of Lucia's Walrus blanket pattern. πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ Going to knit and natter at Lucia's local yarn shop, Threads of Dumbarton. πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ The start of a joint creative project, inspired by our visit to the textiles exhibition. πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ Afternoon tea for lunch at The Butterfly and the Pig! Yummy! πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ My favourite painting in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ Yarn for another secret project! πŸ’œ

πŸ’œ New book for design inspiration. πŸ’œ

I hope you had a good week too. I'll be back very soon to give you and update on my Great Yarn Giveaway, and to share some more amazing prizes with you. xxx

What a wonderful visit! I followed along on Instagram, but it's great to see it all together. I did a report on Scotland in fifth grade and have wanted to go every since...

Bet you're glad you are home, if you were in Scotland you'd be on red alert, although being snowed in with Lucia wouldn't be so bad. We had an Italian friend staying with us once in Lazio who had a Tunnocks caramel wafer for breakfast too.
