I'm back home now and will be working hard to get caught up. If I've missed replying to your emails, or haven't returned phone calls, please remind me and I promise to contact you and give the information you need.
There has been some interesting information in my inbox:
- Welsh Rarebits a small company which represents quality accommodation in Wales. We've stayed at a number of their properties during our tours and have never been disappointed. Have a look at their website: www.rarebits.co.uk. In the latest newsletter there is a contest for a significant prize (250.00 British pounds) which can be used towards a stay or a meal at one of the properties. Well worth a try.
- Shetland: I may have posted the following before, but in case anyone has missed it, here are some contacts: A - Z of Shetland video!; Postcards from Shetland and the online magazine, 60 North http://visit.shetland.org/onlinemag
- Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat is scheduled for the 13 - 16 February, 2014 in Tacoma, Washington. http://madronafiberarts.com/. I've been twice and plan to attend again next year.
- I been advised that there is no information about the tour to Ireland next year on my website. (Thanks Shirley) As soon as I post the details and registration forms for the Viking Cruise and Scotland, I'll be working on the tour to Ireland for September, 2014. I have a rough itinerary in mind but need to do more research.
re: The mitred blanket update - I decided to make it a bit bigger, so before I'm finished with knitting the squares, I will have to complete a total of 108. At present, I've done 49.
