Today was a day in the town. Despite being “Cruise-Ship Friday” (a day without parking), I needed to go in and deliver my Heart❤️Felt sheep to Jamieson’s Knitwear shop on Commercial Street.
The street was buzzing and there were visitors about. Always good to see.
I dropped Floss off at her appointment and went on to herd my latest flock into their new field.
Both types (woolly and curly) sheep are a huge success and any spare minute through the day will find me making more sheep. I try to make at least one and a half sheep a day to keep up with demand. Hopefully when the tourist season dies down, I can keep making and create a bit of a stockpile at home so there is less of a rush.
These are Jamieson’s shop windows based on the poem “Shetland Gairden” by Vagaland. I think it is a beautiful and inspired idea to match their immense wool range with the colours of Shetland’s wild flowers.
The weather sadly deteriorated through the day but we found a nice spot for lunch (fish and chips sat in the car) while being watched by a scrounging seagull.
And now we are home with our messages done and friends caught up with. You always meet someone you know on the Street. I also managed to deliver my Minion leaflets to various strategic tourist information spots so I feel we have achieved.
Lambie is pleased I am home.
Oh yes, sadly Buzzy Bee 🐝 died last night.
Rest in peace among the flowers little Buzzy.
I am sorry we could not help you.
