Mourning Crosses QOM and some views of northern Scotland


Firsty, here is my finish of Kathleen Tracy’s QOM for January.

Mourning Crosses Red Made for my daughter’s male ball jointed doll Rayven.  Here’s a small picture of him.  I also made the crochet scarf he’s wearing.  

Rayven with his quiltI know he does look a bit like a girl but trust me he’s male ;)) 

Now for something completely different…. some pictures I’ve taken of northern Scotland where I live.

View from south of Cromaty BridgeTaken yesterday on my way home from Inverness heading north.  Here is a view just south of the Cromarty A9 bridge.  Of course my photography abilities doesn’t do it justice.

View of habour redLeft a view of the harbour from around the corner to where I live.  Below a view of the harbour a bit further out with a cruise ship sitting there.   Taken last summer.
