Well I thought I would share with my crafty friends a bit of my island life here in Shetland. We are a tiny isolated group of islands ,the furthest northerly islands in the UK, with some of the most beautiful scenery I have the honor to see everyday. We are currently in our long long winter nights but the pay off is the long long summer days with almost no darkness. I hope you enjoy my photos comments are welcomed and appreciated.



The snow this weekend as viewed from my back porch

Looking down over our tiny hamlet my house is somewhere down there Grin


Sheep looking in one of the many old croft houses to explore

Thanks so much for the comments!! Your all so sweet.

QB I hope you do get to visit here someday it is a beautiful place like no other and I realize how lucky I am to call it home, and if ever you do visit drop me a line, I am always happy to be tour guide.

Oh and the sheep out number the humans here, they roam free and are the biggest road hazard,lol,they cause more hold up than anything as traffic is a non issue here,lol Grin Altho I can get cheap raw wool anytime too bad I havent learned to spin wool yet  Undecided I dont think I have the patience hehe
But thanks again for the kind comments I realize I am no professional photographer but with scenery like here its hard to take a bad picture I think.

You live in such a beautiful place, it's wonderful that you actually appreciate the surroundings you see everyday!
The photos are also beautifully taken. I really like the sheep looking through the old window picture.

Thank you for letting us see the very nice country/island of yours. I would love to go to Shetland one day ! It is not so fare from here though.

Hugs from a crafter in Norway.

Thanks again so much for all the nice comments. I am very lucky to live here but I do sometimes forget that in all honesty, especially when the sun is only up for a few hours and its windy and cold,lol. But it always is stunning and as a nature lover it is pure raw nature here.

Ineee you certainly should come here to visit some time seeing as we are only a few hundred miles apart and Shetland shares alot of its heritage and culture with Norway  Smiley and I always am happy to welcome crafty travellers.

I will try and update this thread with pictures when I can there is always something I want to take a photo of lol Smiley

All the best to you my crafty friends and thanks again.
