The creative buzz continues and I have been making house-warming and birthday presents.
I spent a wonderful afternoon with an old friend at a pottery painting cafe- drinking tea and catching up on gossip. I have a real weakness for pottery painting cafes- I would go all the time if I could and this place in West Hampstead is one of the best I have been to: http://www.art4fun.com/.
This time I painted a Teapot for my friends Hazel & Chris who have just moved in together (they nearly just got some flowers as I was rather pleased with the way it turned out!) and a little sushi dish for me.
|Sushi dish with cross-section of beaver dam and most excellent pun.|
On my sewing machine I have been stitching up a storm making some vintage kimono bunting for another dear friend's birthday - the perfect present to make sure everyday is a parade-
and a matching laptop and cable bag for me! (Ok so I only have a cable bag because I didn't follow the golden rule of measure twice, cut once... a lesson for us all?)
|I am in love with this fabric. You will be seeing a lot more of this...|
