September and October have been unbelievably busy. For those of you who know me, you know that my older daughter got married on September 25. What a great day! Not only did her partner wear a kilt, which was lovely, but it is one that my daughter made. She had attended Kilt Camp several years ago, and had been helping me when I was overwhelmed with work, so she knows what she’s doing. She made a gorgeous Isle of Skye kilt that looked outstanding. The whole day went well–the venues were beautiful, the food was good, the contra dancing was really fun, and everyone had a good time. It’s tiring though, and I feel like I am feeling the after-effects now. All I want to do when I get home is to relax with a nice cup of coffee and work on MY stuff. In typical fashion, I have several projects going at once, which allows me to choose what to work on at any one time. There’s a sweater, a quilt, and a needlepoint to choose from. I also have a length of Gretna Green Ancient tartan waiting for me. I am going to make a box-pleated kilt out of that.
However, customers come first. I have to lay out the Smith Ancient tonight, then I have a Campbell Ancient, and the Dress Green Drummond of Perth. Must sew. . . must sew. . . I will let you know how they are coming.
