Olive Oil Bottle

This turned out fab. It's a hand built stoneware olive oil bottle. I sprigged on olive branches and hand painted them. The black is a home made slip. I mixed together different oxides to make the slip. I think it worked really well.

Screaming Green Witch

is the name of my newest item of clothing.
This is a fabulously quick and easy pattern by Drops designs Salsa Cardigan
I used up loads of my green DK stash (doubled stranded) and I even made my own polymer clay buttons for it.

Now you understand the screaming bit

and the green :o)

Working on a slouchy hat and thinking about doing some freezer paper stencils. Well I've ordered the freezer paper. I understand the concept and I'm hunting down designs. The first thing I want to do is some black and red butterfly wings on the back of a t-shirt.

My List has grown :o) I so have my crafting hat on and I'm determined to revamp kitchen and bedroom. Bedroom is well underway, but I'll maybe leave sanding and painting furniture until the longer warmer days.

I working on sorting and storage this year, so labelled jars, tins and boxes.
watch this space :o)
