Island Retreat

Here is my latest finish, Island Retreat (top). It is the companion piece to Greek Island I worked a while ago. Both designs are by Heritage but have now been discontinued. I bought the first in a sale at my local craft shop and managed to track the other down on ebay.

We are in the middle of a heatwave here so don't have to retreat to any other island. "The boys" have been enjoying the sun and playing with their toys. Well, Sid and Higgins have been playing with their toys while the Aredales tend to sit and watch.
