Christmas on Colonsay...

Christmas on Colonsay was wonderful this year, sadly no snow, but we did glimpse a wee covering on the Paps of Jura.
The ferry came in on Christmas Eve.

I think most folk who were expected on our wee island had already arrived and those from our island had already headed off to the mainland to celebrate with their family and friends as there were few vehicles on this boat, but still wonderful to see.

Christmas morning up with the larks and out to feed the boys and girls. 
Tups - Ewan-san, Big Fella, Wee Man and their mates

All the Girlies

The weather has since closed in and yesterday's ferry (Friday) didn't even leave Oban! But we are used to the wind and rain here. It's quite comforting to sit all warm and cosy, looking out over the Atlantic and watching the weather fronts come in. We can even guess now how far away the front is!!
We all had a very relaxing time here at the Homestead, pure bliss if the truth be known. 
All packages sent off for our customers were received, so we can heave a sigh of relief.

We have a wee sale of some of our items, 20% off until the 5th January, so knitting has commenced once again. But, if you are here, or coming here to our wonderful wee island during Hogmanay, you can come and see for yourself. I will be around at the Homestead and all our island wares are on display in my Studio. You are more than welcome...
For those of you out there who can't make it to Colonsay, you can see the sale items on our website: 
Preparations are in full flow for Hogmanay here on Colonsay. So it goes without saying...
Have a wonderful and Happy New Year everyone, we wish you all health, wealth and happiness for 2013. Its going to be a fantastic year.
