RNLI benefits from craft work by Sheila & Ron Blackman
It's many years since Sheila and Ron Blackman left Shetland but they have never forgot living here and regularly send hand crafted items to Aith Lifeboat to be used to raise funds for the RNLI. Usually it's been one big item but this year it's a huge collection of hats, scarves, notepads, bags, wall hangings, cushion covers. I am bound to have missed some out. I was invited to take a look at these - what a feast for the eyes - too many to photograph, especially as they were safely protected inside plastic bags.
These photos give a taste of the variety of craftwork Sheila and Ron have created.
Visit Aith Lifeboat Station before 31 August 2013 to see most of these items.
