Welcome to our musings on all things craft related.

Gallery update...

Blairmore Gallery not far from us has recently been taken on by new owner Ciorsdan (pronounced kirsten) and we wish her all the very best. The Gallery has been a popular stopping off point over the years on the lovely road along Loch Long - local and Scottish art and crafts, lovely homemade soups and cakes and friendly folks. The Gallery is next to the lovely Blairmore Pier which I discovered this week is one of only five piers in Scotland. There are two in the Edinburgh area and the other two are local to us in Dunoon and Rothesay. Three within easy reach - I didn't recently they were a rarity here in Scotland; it makes them all the more special. Here are some photos, taken the other day when I delivered some pottery to them. 

Instragram - instant fun
