I've been knitting, sewing, photographing and hiking a lot so far this year. Lots of new projects, and some finishes too.
A couple of my finished project this year:
Table runner inspired by Lori Holt. The fabrics are also from Lori Holt's lines, and I just love this happy table runner. I quilted it on my longarm machine, and just some easy cross hatching. The batting is polyester.
Close up of the log cabin quilt. I finished this one during the summer, and I quilted it on my longarm machine using a panto I love.
This is the whole quilt, and I just love the scrappy log cabin! Almost all of the fabrics are from Lori Holt's fabric lines, also the light ones.
My passion for photography did for sure get a boost when I attended a photo tour to Scotland back in April. I have never traveled much, and I was so scared of traveling alone but I did not have a choice if I really wanted to do this. The urge to get there and visit the lovely places was stronger than my fear of going alone.I've been looking at Istagram photos of the places I wanted to visit in Scotland for more than a year before I discovered Bernard Geraghty's profile and found his website for his tours. I booked the tour many months ahead, and I was super excited!
I had the most amazing trip and the rest of the group was just awesome and the lovliest company. It was overwhelming and almost surreal to be there and so many fantastic memories. Scotland has for sure some amazing landscapes, and I really hope to go back there again one day. I'm so happy I got some lovely shots from the trip, with good help from our amazing tour guide, Bernard. Would highly recomend to sign up for a trip with him if you are interested in attending a photo tour.
Some of the shots from the trip to Scotland:
The Jacobite Steam Train (Harry Potter train) at the Glenfinnan Viaduct
Lagangarbh cottage at the base of Buachaille Etive Mor
Early morning by Loch Shiel
I am so happy I dared to go through with this trip, and I am proud of myself for being tough enough to do it. My urge to travel and do more photography is growing, and I signed up for another trip with Bernard Geraghty but this time to Ireland. I traveled to Northern Ireland with him and the rest of his awesome group back in September. But I'll tell you more about that adventure in a later post :-)
Wish you all Happy Sewing and Happy Weekend!
