Day 98 / 365 – Photo a Day Project 2023

A fabulous day at Carinish Hall, North Uist and it was great to catch up with both other artists and crafters and people that I haven’t seen for a while. Also good to meet new people both locals and people visiting our beautiful islands. Thank you to all who bought from me today!

The hall was absolutely buzzing with people all day, there were 12 tables of crafters around the edge of the hall and tables in the middle for people enjoying tea, coffee and home bakes that had been donated. Raffle tickets were selling constantly and there had been so many amazing prize donations from local businesses and individuals that it took an hour to do the draw for all the prizes. Ani and Chrissie – two local ladies who have been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and who had organised this event announced that over £22,000 had been raised – totally incredible and just goes to show what an amazing community i’m lucky enough to live in.

Here I am all set up (the walking sticks aren’t mine..)
The hall absolutely packed with people
Managed a wee bit of crochet inbetween customers 🙂

Day 63 / 365 – Photo a Day Project 2023

A fabulous day, I was asked to go to Cnoc Soilleir at Daliburgh to take the photos for the International Women’s Day event and I know that it’s not even three weeks post-surgery but I agreed as it sounded like a great event – and I told them that I would probably need to sit down frequently!

There was lots going on, some fascinating films and a variety of really interesting workshops and culminating in a fashion show of items available at Daliburgh thrift shop. The event was packed and everyone seemed to have a great day.

Not one of the thrift shop items but people were asked to wear something colourful or to wear something that had a special significance to them, Seonaid was modelling her very special dress.
