It is a dark, dreich day!
Squally showers laden with hail pepper the island.
Only occasionally does a rather weak sun make an appearance.
But there is no dulling of the spirits at An Talla, our community hall.
Apparently the Big Man is making appearance – Santa Claus himself.
He has a impressive new grotto.
Lovingly created by the members of the Tapestry Group.
They lost count of the number of hours put into its creation.
But there is no sign of the Big Man.
So someone stands in!
Its the Tiree Craft Fayre
organised by the Parties Committee
and what an attraction the afternoon proves to be.
To appreciate the work double click for larger pictures.
The grotto awaits
but where is the Big Man
where is the star of the show?
The chair remains empty.
But wait here is the man himself.
What a busy time of the year.
Roll on the 25th!
