I had a great time today with my family up in Estes Park. The morning was spent watching the bagpipe and clan parade. After lunch we walked the town. I was on my feet from 8:30-5:00. It was a fun. Here are the pictures of the kilts and arisaid I made. The kilts I made this summer are my daughter's and son-in-law's. My daughter-in-law is wearing the arisaid. I made my husband's kilt last year and my son's kilt 10 years ago.

Answers to ?'s....
1. What were YOU wearing? Have you made yourSELF a kilt yet?
I was wearing a sash made from the Buchanan tartan. My clan (dad's mom side) is Buchanan. I haven't made myself a kilt yet because I want to be at goal before I do. Goal prize = kilt!
2. For some reason I thought they would all be the same plaid representing your "clan". How did you decide which plaids to use? Are they significant?
My husband's family heritage is the Fraser Clan and the Lindsey Clan. My son and wife are wearing the Hunting Fraser Tartan. My husband is wearing the regular Fraser tartan. My son-in-law has the Modern Weir Tartan. He isn't scottish so he picked a tartan based on the blue and yellow colors. My daughter is wearing the Western Isles Tartan. This is a general tartan that isn't associated with a clan. She picked it because it was purple and black.
