Painting yarn bowls at Aa Fired Up in Kirkwall. Insides done, outsides to be finished. We have to wait a week while they are fired.
Seriously good haul in the post this afternoon! The new gloves came just in time. My old ones are the worse for wear.
Look what came today. All the way from China. SO comfy.
Went to lunch at Lucano's - first opportunity to wear those new boots. They did not disappoint.
These are my trousers at the end of this afternoon's walk. I am now in my third pair of the day.
Bright, low sun plus dark clouds show off my glass angel beautifully.
The visiting dogs; Ben the black Scottie and Bess the ancient Border Collie.
Bess may be ancient, but she loves her walks!
Met my new 'grandson' this afternoon. Nick and Jen have the patter of tiny paws. He is called Melan...
Wonderful morning painting ceramics again. We'll see how this comes out after it is fired.
I was not trying to match my bowl with my bedding. Honestly.
This is Ben's mug after firing. The two blues looked the same before, but you can see the difference now.
The mug I painted for Ben's 40th birthday. This is it ready to be fired.
