Mermaids and blue ground


found some pics of my mermaid, need to finish off the wicked red one that I have got rather stalled on.

Been scrubbing the kitchen and will be painting it, within days possibly(!) in the delicious 'blue ground' by farrow and ball that the lovely http://dancesforpies.blogspot.com/ has given me, bless her with angelic baby resting help.

Had to return my chilli painting back its rightful owner today (see May 20th 2009 post for pic), sad, thinking that I really need to motivate myself to do another one, can I do it again? It was done in extreme conditions that I'm really not sure I can replicate. I am a spasmodic and chancy painter at best, maybe with practice it might get more consistent.

tara for now

woohoo, made my first Folksy sale, nice little peridot bracelet to a nice lady in Otley.

Repair nightmares today, repairing jewellery is a jolly good way to get yourself a nervous tick and lose money. Never again, well not until I've finished this chain for Noi anyway, complicated ideas about creating a heat sink from playdough and foil...

Made some super kitch bunting from silver lame and violent pink english country garden material for my friend who is decorating the cabaret tent at the workhouse festival in Llanfyllin http://workhousefestival.co.uk . I will be off to the site tommorow for the rest of the week pretty much to help create a groovy space for the cabaret, kitchtastic.
