Skye Now

Still in Scotland, and it's still sunny:
edinburgh2 to Skye
This was somewhere on the road from Inverness on the way to Skye. It's Loch Something, and Sarah will remember Loch what when I ask her and I'll try to remember to tell you!

We have had a great time at Summer School. Lots of weaving, some spinning and we saw others dyeing and making baskets, doing a photo course, more spinning, and weaving weaving weaving. People were busy: what luxury to have classes for 5 days, really 6 because we shopped a bit on Saturday and then went right back to work. They got Lots! done:

edinburgh2 018

We used lots of different looms, and everyone got plenty done, enough for me to be confident they know the technique. Luxury, that 5 days of class. Some even finished:

And........ there were sheep!

More to come: the sun just disappeared and I hear rain....but it's what we expect here yes? :D!

What a beautiful vista! I'd love to visit Scotland. I've been eying up Summer School since it seems like I'll be working forever and won't be making it to SOAR for a few more years.
