Giveaway! And August break: Pattern

August break: pattern

The lovely people of the Crafts for Christmas and Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts show (it’s two trade shows in one, one is crafty people selling their stuff, the other is fabric and craft materials) have kindly offered me two tickets to give away. It’s 26-29 October 2017 at the at the SEC, Glasgow. All the info on their website.

I’m gonna keep this giveaway really low key, just leave a comment if you’d like the tickets, and I’ll draw a name out of the hat in a week.

They’re also running a 2 for 1 ticket offer with code GL17.

August break: Alive

Deer

This deer comes into my parents garden – this is it on the neighbouring plot.

Initially they were quite excited about it, but then they realised it eats rosebuds. My mum is really into roses and has got all these fancy types (breeds? species?) that she won’t get to enjoy because they’re now deer food. My mum, as well as spraying the plants with buttermilk, has made some signs for the deer. Just in case it can read and is law abiding!

This is a poem that has been spraypainted onto the pavements of the Shore for Leith Late. It’s Edinburgh Makar Christine De Luca’s poem ‘Leith Swing’ which references historical buildings. I have no idea what order these come in (though I do know the top one is the first line) or if I have them all – there was a walking tour and it said it would take an hour, but it would take you 15 mins tops to walk between all of these, but then again maybe there would have been a bit of chat given at each bit. It also says that the tour goes over uneven terrain, so I assume there are more bits of this I don’t know about.
