Do not blame the thistle that you see no beauty.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
This week, the Diva challenged us with the tangle Mac Dee. This pattern looks like tartan and sounds like Scotland. I couldn’t help but use it as the background for a thistle, the symbol of Scotland. Only the Scots would identify themselves with this prickly weed that is so hard to get rid of.
Since all of my tangling supplies are at the convention center at our HOOT booth, I used what was at hand: Gelly Roll pens for the thistle and colored pencil for Mac Dee.
That is pretty lame, so here are some highlights from the Scotland part of our UK cruise for some real eye candy.
Inverness was as pretty as a picture. I could stay there forever.
