Hello Pauline, You are blessed to be living in Scotland. I live in the US, and I am eager to visit the Highlands.

I took a few art lessons about 10 years ago but stopped after the second lesson because though the teacher was an excellent artist, she wasn’t an excellent teacher. Not long after I stopped going to her class, I began drawing with a friend at her kitchen table in the evening. What I discovered from actually drawing (rather than just thinking about drawing!) was that I had potential and the more I drew pictures the better I became. A fun exercise is to place a photograph in front of you upside down and draw what you see. The results are amazing.

I knitted about 3 scarves, and then years later when I tried to do it again, I couldn’t, even though I was using the same instruction book. I finally gave up, though I know that someday I’ll try again. But not soon!

I have enjoyed reading all of Diana Gabaldon’s books in the “Outlander “ series. Have you read them or seen the TV series with the same name?
