Oh blitherin' 'eck.
Lots of decorating was the order of the day, and so I started with a board of cereal bowls all in the Birdie design and I counted that one of them alone had 107 dots on it. A little excessive on one small bowl maybe. Never thought about that before. Then I figured as I had made the big jugs and been putting off decorating them all week I’d give them a shot. First off the big weird thing. Made it potentially even weirder than it was.
Then. . .
I decided to give the lesser of the two big jugs a large old oak tree and had a great time decorating it while the rain poured down outside battering on the window. If only it had been a bright warm dry day. . .
I was thinking it looked pretty good even if I do say so myself, I was really pleased with it. Then the postman came and I had a natter to him, sitting back down to notice something a little awry. . .
And then. . .
So the last one I was really pleased I had slipped in white and blasted with the gas torch so that I could sgraffito it this afternoon. I had thankfully taken it pretty much back to leather hard. I spent a couple of hours decorating this but it isn’t finished yet, some more to do when I’ve decided what to fill in the empty space with. There are huge spaces on the sides that are just begging for some attention. I’ve left it wrapped up so I can attend to it later, maybe this weekend if the weather is still rubbish. I will let you know how it goes, fingers crossed it’ll stay upright now, well as I think it was Mr Meatloaf that almost but didn’t actually say “one out of three ain’t bad.”
