Enjoying the sunshine!

What glorious weather we have had today! Me and Mr Bunny have made.good use of it to. We started the day in Peebles where we visited a few fabulously arty places.
First we we went to the museum where there is currently an exhibition of work by the Embroiderers Guild. It was a shame we couldn't take photographs because the work was truly amazing and totally inspired me. My favourite piece  was an enormous wall hanging in bright colours - there is a little snap of it below which I got out of the gallery guide!
Then we headed over to the Moy Mackay gallery to drool over her beautiful felt pictures (Google her to see them!)
We then enjoyed a picnic by the River Tweed with our cakes purchased from Cocoa Black before heading off to the Tibetan and Buddhist Centre at Eskdalemuir. This is a beautiful, tranquil place we first visited last year. You can stroll around the gardens, visit the temple, take a hike up Fairy Hill, shop and enjoy a drink in the tearooms.
Finally, we visited the Borders Textile Towerhouse in Hawick which is a museum all about the textile and cashmere industry.
Later on we plan to go for a little walk to visit the sheep!
Who knows what the rest of the week will bring!
