1  U.K. AND IRELAND / SCOTLAND / Shetland Anyone? on: March 15, 2009 08:37:39 AM
Just figured I would see if there is anyone else here from Shetland. Or am I the only one floating on this northerly island whose on craftsters? Would be good to meet other folk living here that are of the crafty variety, seeing as Shetland has so many crafty and creative people  anyway. Smiley
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My Life and photography in the most Northerly Island in the UK.... Shetland on: November 23, 2008 01:57:54 PM
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

Our foot prints on the beach by our house

Looking over the beach towards my house

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

10  U.K. AND IRELAND / SCOTLAND / SNB Edinburgh Anyone???? on: September 24, 2004 06:58:50 AM
OK i am desperate to get a Stitch n Bitch Group going in Edinburgh!!!! So i am turning to my fellow crafters here to find out if anyone would be interested, there are tons of coffee houses around the city and I think it would be a great time to hang out and knit with other like minded, crafty types. My only other dilema is getting the word out to people and finding people who are interested, So if you are interested and or you know people that would be please , please let me know. And any feedback and ideas are much appreciated ,You ALL ROCK!!!! Grin
