I was looking at your post through the google-reader and thought oh, I need to send this to Jennifer!! :)

Jennifer said...

Thanks for thinking of me Laura!

Katie - I've been to Edinburgh but never been to Dovecot. I was there before the tapestry bug. Between the Navajo Indians out west in the US and Dovecot, I think I have a number of major trips in my future!
