A Busy Year and a Holiday

It’s been a while since I last updated you. In fact I think it was January! The year continued to be really busy, helped by people locked-down and enjoying some online retail therapy! Orders finally quietened down around July, when shops began to open and people became more adventurous, leaving their houses to go on holiday. So Kath and I took the opportunity to switch my Etsy shop off, switch on the out-of-office auto-reply emails, pack up the van and head to the Scottish hills and lochs!

We found an amazing beach on the north coast of Scotland with hardly anyone about. Beautiful weather and blue seas. Absolute paradise and a well earned rest for both of us.

Enjoying views across to Skye and the Outer Hebrides in my newly refurbished deck chair, covered in leather, of course!

It didn’t take me long before I had to get some leather out though! Here I am stitching a patchwork notebook.

I finished making this patchwork notebook by a river in the Cairngorms. Such a beautiful and inspiring location!
An amazing array of pebbles on a beach on the East coast.

Can’t wait for our next trip…! I hope you all managed to get away somewhere nice this year.

And I’ll try my best to keep you more up-to-date with leather work, up-coming exhibitions, etc. Feel free to give me a kick if you’ve not heard anything from me in a while!
