I've been rummaging through boxes from the garage - hey, we only moved in four-and-a-half years ago. This was to make way for a potential new motorbike for MrBorg of course (not rolling my eyes honestly). In the process I came across this little plaque that I made in a pottery evening-class years ago and had completely forgotten about. It's based on a goose design from a Pictish symbol-stone. I love the animal designs you get on symbol-stones - simple but very striking.

Other excitement this week (because I lead such an exciting life!) was the arrival of the New Year edition of the Shetland Times, including the calendar, sent by my aunt. I'm really happy with this year's calendar, very cheerful sunny picture, certainly compared with the grey murk outside my windows this week.

My sleep is much improved so I've been happily continuing my log-cabin knitting each evening - off to do that now!

Thank you :-). Pottery was never really my thing but that's probably the bit I'm most proud of, ooh apart from the pottery monster I made at school - must photograph that!

Wow- i love the goose,so simple but effective. I used to love doing pottery at school- I wish it was a bit easier to take up at home ! x

Thank you :-). I was a bit rubbish at pottery at school, it didn't really grab me, but I did quite enjoy that evening-class. You're right, it's not a practical thing to do at home at all. Plasticene's probably more my level :-D.
