Doing a Highland fling...

I have just returned from taking DD to compete at a Highland (Scottish) dancing competition on the weekend.  This is not a new thing to me as I grew up Highland dancing myself. I can proudly saw I even particpated in a highland swordathon (doing the well-known sword dance) last week to raise money for the Australasian Championships which will be held in Hobart next year at Easter.  And yes I was a bit stiff the next day.

My DD's kilt is blue Stewart of Appin. It was my sister's kilt so it's lovely that DD fits into it!

Whoo hoo! My Molly Makes mobile phone kit that I won on Sarah's blog arrived.  I love it and can't wait to stitch it. It's my first blog win so even better"!


I am doing a Highland fling today (figuretively speaking) as I have nearly finished stitching the toadstool. What part of the sampler will I do next? The hedgehog? The squirrel? I guess you will have to wait and see...

My grandmother used to do Scottish dancing when she was a young girl. I was lucky enough to get one of her brooches she used to wear I think on her skirt. I always smile when I hear someone enjoys doing this dancing. Enjoy your sewing up your mobile phone case. And thank you for popping by my blog. :)
