I threw the tops on these jugs (blurry pic, sorry) and they are now under plastic and waiting for the new year to be finished off. I don’t like the empty shelves when I go in in the new year so thought this year I would try having some things at different stages so I can get straight into them. There are some dishes ready to be slipped too.
I pressed this dish with a slab of clay that I had rolled and trailed yesterday. I usually opt for the thick layer of slip all over but end of year is a bit like the end of term at school so why not do something different. At school it was wear your own clothes day, at work it’s brush your slip on day. I’m quite excited about it, tis very different for me. I was watching the crows playing on the snowy barn roof opposite yesterday so that’s where the birdie came from this time.
Paul came to meet me at lunch time when I finished so we went off to find a suitable branch to be our tree. The tree is now up, the mince pies are baked, the presents are wrapped and I’m off for a soak in the bath with a good book and I will soon be smelling of roses courtesy of a bar soap made by Tig, which was supposed to be a gift but I kept it for myself.
Have a wonderful Christmas all. Enjoy yourselves and your families!
