Baby Owlbear!

I've been needle felting again. This time I made a baby owlbear (from the D&D monster manual for those with a slightly lower nerd rating 😉). A post shared by Kashcah Dreams of Crofting (@kashcahdreamsofcrofting) on Aug 15, 2018 at 7:24am PDT

Here’s our story, sad but true…

Two weeks ago at about this time I was standing in Schiphol airport waiting to board the plane home. I had one last, quick look at email and saw there was one from our solicitors dealing with the purchase of Rose Cottage. I’d been in meetings all day and had missed a couple of calls…

Six on Saturday #4

I’m cheating a little because I took these last Saturday, during our visit to Hermitage Castle.

Six on Saturday #3

For this week’s six on Saturday (it is still Saturday right?) I decided to do a quick macro study of leaves. Found some pretty good stuff outside and two from inside. Thanks again to The Propagator for Six on Saturday

Isle of May Trip
