It is always lovely to get a photograph from the new owners of the hedgehogs and bears! This was taken by Katie Woods on the way back home with her new friends. Katie runs a pet hotel called the Dandelion Patch and has a lot of REAL animals to look after.
The Scone Game Fair came too fast after the Highland Show and I am sure the animals all felt weary sitting on their shelves. However I am sure they perked up when they were adopted and taken home! Sunday was terrible with torrential rain and wind strong enough to wobble the marquee. We all remained dry though and I enjoyed splashing in the muddy puddles with my brand new 'Wellibobs' - pale blue with roses all over them!
Now we are taking a small break with the next fair in the Lake District at the end of the month. I hardly have anything left at all so I am happily sorting out my mohair wondering what to make next. I will also have to get messy (a bit I love) and dye some tiny cardis for the small hedgehogs. No matter how careful I am I manage to splatter colours all over!
It seems so far away but I have to think about Christmas - in particular Country Living at the SECC in Glasgow. It is a fantastic show but requires a lot of planning.
