 We are heading off today.

And it's a frosty, cold morning, so we will be taking extra care on the roads, due to the possibility of black ice on the roads.

I really dislike travelling on frosty mornings.

But, at least we won't be going anywhere near snow!  That shit is far too cold for me.

I did get a 4th Christmas Gnome Runner finished yesterday, but the lighting was not good for a photo, so you will have to wait for it.

ABOVE:  This is #5, ready for stitching when I get home.

I have one more to do after that one, then I'll be happy with the number of Gnome Runners I have heading into the summer markets.

My next lot are going to be Hearts... bright and colourful Hearts.  

I just love colour!  I don't think I will ever do dull and boring, or 'traditional' types of patterns ever again.

I know I can do all those intricate blocks, I just don't want to.

Just waiting for the house sitter to turn up, then Stew and I can leave, knowing the dogs are being looked after, and the house is occupied.


KINLOCH for the weekend.

ABOVE: Lunch time view. Stunning. COLD as f#*k.

We went for a walk around my relatives area. And a long haired dashund tried to eat me. Well ok... it ran out and barked and growled at me and I nearly died of fright!  Luckily the owner came out and took it insidestill shaken though.
I really get scared when strange dogs have a go at me.

Now sitting in the lounge eating home made ginger nuts biscuits! AND I'm gunna have a cuppa tea, JUST to dunk me biscuits  in! 🤣😅🤣

ABOVE: Sundown colours.
Looking forward to a lovely evening... catch you tomorrow.
