We held our monthly Carers’ High Tea with Alzheimer Scotland at An Lanntair tonight. It was a great opportunity to begin work on the first Carers’ Cushion Kit. Chrissie decided she liked the birds fabric towards the edges and laid out her kit, complete with heart, on the table. We made a start on stitching one seam and pinning the next.
There’s a Gaelic saying – the hardest part is making a start.
Tonight’s conversations were interesting… Amadillos, hedgehogs, Russia, knitting, wooden train sets and statues cut from trees by chainsaw. We also made the most of the Loom exhibition downstairs for the last time, as next month, our meeting date will see a new exhibition. The baked haddock with spiced chickpeas and spinach special on the board was particularly fantastic. Thanks, everyone!
Thanks also, to the excellent Front of House team, who helped us deal with a pressing medical situation swiftly and with minimal stress.
