Advent 2018, day 6



Two more tealights - though the older one has just burnt itself out as I'm typing this. And another origami surprise from the mystery calendar!



I've also got a Jacquie Lawson Edinburgh advent calendar that my mum sent me - on that, today's treat was a tartan designer. So I came up with this:



As it happens there is an actual tartan for my surname. That's not it - the tartan is rather obscure and hard to track down, and I couldn't find a reference for it. So instead that's an approximation of the Gunn clan tartan, which is linked to my family as my surname is a sept of the Gunn clan. There you go, a bit of family history trivia for you!
