Now I know you may remark that at last there's a mess on my desk since the big clean up but it's only work in progress as I am prepping a workshop for Saturday. I'm standing in for WOYWER Carol who has had quite a dreadful time recently with her son in hospital due to a brain haemorrage. I'm glad to say that he's now home and recovering and would like to wish him well.
My hyacinth is hanging on longer than I anticipated.
I thought that I'd finished my Three Kind Mice which, as I mentioned last week, are made from the shrunken felted baby suit of my Fraulein Grandee. I showed them to her yesterday when we were skyping and she sang Three Blind Mice for me. When she reached the point when the farmer's wife "cut off their tails with a carving knife", I realised, panic, panic, that my Three Kind Mice didn't even have tails to cut off!! I'd forgotten to make them any!!! Back to the sewing machine!
Yesterday I visited the little town of Ormskirk and the Chapel Gallery.
We went in for coffee and chanced upon this great exhibition called....
Really fun creations mainly made from recycled materials really did make me SMILE!.
....Most were mobile in some way....
This was my favourite piece, but it was sad that it had been damaged by the public trying out it's mechanics, and was in the process of repair.
This busker, in Ormskirk, entertained passers by in the town but the two old dears behind him were oblivious of his talents. He was really good, playing great music, Bob Marley, Rock, and everything bar the usual buskers medleys. Note the traditional Lancashire Clogs!
Watch out, I'll be visiting ..... so see ya'll around the desks!
