Rural Views..........

So, last night I was off to Barr to give a wee talk to the Upper Stinchar WRI. It's many years since I was last in Barr (as a rent collector!!).........I took the coast road and what a beautiful evening it was as I drove down, Ailsa Craig was standing very clear and dramatic as the sun was setting.
As I turned off the road at Old Dailly, the sign said 4 miles, apparently I was following "the corkscrew". The windfarm was a new sight since my last visit and as I climbed up into the hills they became larger and larger until I was surrounded by turbines, they were turning quite slowly and with the contours of the hills the whole effect was quite spooky - I am sure there is probably a quilt in it somewhere!! After a very long 4 miles, I arrived in the village, feeling somewhat mesmerised by my twisty drive.

The ladies were very welcoming and seemed to enjoy my quilts - if any of them are visiting this blog, many thanks for the invite and for your hospitality.

My return journey was dark, and incident free..........

  1. Delighted to learn that you do talks as recently appointed programme sec. for Carrick Quilters could I approach you as a speaker please? I would love to have someone come and give us a talk on Colour as so many people find it difficult to know what goes with what and how to make the most of their choices. I am looking for speakers for end 2010 begining 2011. cheers Tricia
