I am so proud to be selling Morag Henriksen's latest book Tapestry of Scenes here on Skye Makers website. I first discovered Morag's writing back in 2014 when she had just published Scenery of Dreams. At the time, I was on a short visit to the island so I was absolutely delighted to find a part of Skye, beautifully wrapped, that fitted in my pocket to take back to Norfolk with me. Scenery of Dreams is a wonderful collection of short stories sharing the life and soul of the Highland communities within Wester Ross and Skye, an absolute delight to read and share. In the sequel Tapestry of Scenes, Morag treats us to stories and poetry from her travels around the world as well as further memories and reflections of her life in the Highlands.
Sunday was one of those magical days that spring up and surprise us occasionally! It was a beautiful day and we decided to go and walk the dogs over at Waterstein and visit Linda who is in the middle of lambing. Her Suffolk sheep are kept in over winter and so lamb earlier than those out on the hill. As we arrived, Linda called to us from the barn to say that a ewe expecting twins had just gone into labour.
