Some work.

I have been pootling along with some ideas.A friend saw a piece I had set on one side and swapped me some earrings as long as I would finish it,he's a goldsmith.I did and unknown to me he took it to a gallery his wife supplies.The result is they would like to see more of my pieces .So I have produced three ,based on the harbour at Mousehole.
We also had a very busy North Somerset Arts week despite the weather.I made some jugs for that ,as there was a lovely dresser where they could be displayed.I was lucky enough to sell one set.I made them from silk paper,hand appliqued and embroidered.Then used bondaweb and hand -dyed teabag paper for the insides.I was quite pleased how they turned out.

This afternoon I have been playing in a sketchbook as I have some ideas to do with reflections in swimming pools.

Well done on your art pieces, I'm not surprised your friend wanted more the one you've posted is gorgeous.
And the jugs are super, very unusual.
