Slippy slushy day.

Thick rain this morning, made for a chilly slightly damp ride to work. By the time I got there it had become proper snow but the ground is so wet that it didn’t stick. Lots of snow on the hills though.
Slipped this jug this morning, I wanted something simple to put on it. The second one of these I have also slipped white but am leaving to to dry to do some sort of sgraffito design on it.

On Sunday I was lured into helping construct a horse lantern for a big lantern parade taking place in Dumfries this weekend “Burns Light” celebrating the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns’ birth. “Neigh!” I hear you cry but yes indeed I was. It’s a horse as our village used to hold an annual horse fair that people travelled to from far and wide.

It was fun, it has been made by the village youth group and Lizzie and a few keen adults helpers too. It’ll look great once it’s lit up though unfortunately we’re not allowed to use real candles in there, health and safety you know!

  2. The look of wet slip on that pot is mouth watering. The slip trailing looks good too.
