It's all MINE

I have various bags that I use for demonstration purposes for my sewing workshops, but I didn't have one that I actually called "my own" - until today. It is a HUGE shopping bag made from lime green fake leather, lined with wipeable nylon and the base is lined with decovil for more stability.
Guess what I will be taking to Tesco next time?

New family member

This is Toffee, a 3 year old Abyssinian guinea pig, absolutely adorable. We picked her up from the cavy rescue today and she and Florence had a first encounter - without any rumblestrutting or fighting. They seem to get on fine, but before they're going in a cage together, we let them have a sniff at each other every night now for the next few days just to be sure they are ok together.

Wedding photos

It doesn't happen very often these day that we attend a wedding, but I suppose that's down to just getting older, haha, and not having many friends and family that are not married already. Anyway, yesterday was an exception and we spent a lovely day at Paul and Emma's wedding at Forbes of Kingennie. The setting was absolutely beautiful and even the weather was playing along. Here are some impressions:
