Two plates & a jug

I'm managing to get some snippets of free time here and there, when the bub and the geezer are napping....unfortunately not in tandem as yet, must fix that. So I haven't managed a big enough block to do any crafting in. Also, the geezer has co-opted the laptop for some work he has taken home and now has his papers on top of my craft books, paint tubes and fabric piles on the table.

What's one to do in place of the drawing and the sewing?

I've been stealing computer time surfing all of my fave craft blogs and my fave online craft shops. Several clicks later and I've got three or four items in my multiple carts in several shops. Bad, bad, bad....and sad!

So, to distract me from making further damage to the bank account, I've been taking photos of crockery which I promised to show. I used to do a lot of ceramic painting some years back and this is what is left of that era.

My tulip platter....



....water lilies platter.....


...and a flower jug, with a blossom of a species unknown.



Everything else I made was gifted or long gone, most probably broken and tossed. Please excuse the dust.......that's not your screen. That really is dust! I'm blogging, instead of cleaning, yet again.

And I'll continue to ignore the cleaning while the bub is still asleep. Now where were those carts again? Hmmm.

Gorgeous, gorgeous work Jade! I especially love the jug (and I'm also coveting your recent fabric acquisition :-))
