I decided to try something I hadn’t done before.
With a coral fossil, similar to this one, which wasn’t particularly inspiring me.
It’s very round and very flat.
So I saw a photograph of a back to front setting and thought I’d have a go.
It’s a little bit boring, but next time I might jazz it up a bit.
Also I’m going to have to work on the back a little more because I didn’t quite get the rim as perfect as I would like.
But at least I’m excited to have another go, which is good as I’ve not been that excited just recently.
I’ve also been working on my large embroidery pattern.
This, or something like this, will be the top part as I want to make a long skinny one.
I’ve almost finished my second practice one, but forgot to take a photo for you.
Nothing much else happening.
I did wake up this morning thinking I might like to learn Japanese as the characters look so beautiful.
I mean look at this.
It’s talking about ceramics, and someone who died in 1995 I think.
I google translated it.
So I found a website that explained how to pronounce the characters to me.
I watched all five videos.
It didn’t much help because I still don’t know what it all means, but I might go back and try again as the man made it seem so simple. It’s a lot of remembering though, and I’m not that good at remembering.
I might not bother with it, but what if I’m stranded in Japan one day, in the countryside where no one speaks English and I haven’t eaten in weeks and am close to death.
I suppose I could draw pictures, but, I mean, it might come in handy then.
So I can feel it in my bones that today is going to be a battle between making another piece of jewelry, or cleaning the bathroom – again!
Man the whole bathroom thing is getting old.
But don’t worry, I’ll be o.k….
So I wish you all a happy Sunday, unless you live in Singapore (Hi Soo), where it’s Monday, then I wish you a happy Monday or any other day that it happens to be where you live.
