Pottery Room

We had a big change at the beginning of the year, my Bestie and Pottery Bud moved South 😩

The only upside is that I had to make a major change to my house so that I could fit the pottery room in my house instead of her sold one.
Anyway it has taken a bit of effort but it is starting to take shape. Still need to get an electrician in though, so no kiln at the moment.
But I have started working on new things.

Sgraffito is big this month with me.

Felt like doing an abstract piece. If it survives it will join the eclectic set of pasta bowls in my cupboard.

I love having the space to potter whenever I get the chance, but I really miss Mrs P. Potting is just not the same without her.

Bodum Travel Press

OMG this is absolutely fab. I have used it about 4 times now. Makes great coffee even for me who loves latte. 
I heat about 150 mls of milk in the microwave.
Heat up the press using some hot water.
I then empty it add the milk, a heaped table spoon of filter coffee and top it up with hot water.
I give it a stir, add the lid and let sit for 5 minutes.
Finally I press the plunger down and it's ready to go.

Don't over heat the milk or it could be 30 minutes before it's ready to drink without burning your mouth. 😀

First project for 2015

Is complete bar the ends getting weaved in. Not telling you what it is or showing in complete firm, as it's a pressie.

Looking good though. Happy with it.

Second project has been started. Again is a present so not telling you what it is yet.

My pretty assistant is Our Boo.

Got a lovely second hand iPod dock for the sitting room. It's really small and neat, but has great sound and gets quite loud. The remote is a bonus too.

Back to work in the morning 😩 I love my job, but really love being at home more. I always have so much too do and so little time. I'm never bored.
I have a huge To Do List full of DIY, de cluttering, moving around, not to mention crochet, knitting, sewing, lino tiles and pottery. Never a dull moment.
