I really did start with mugs the other day but after making a set of 6 and a spare I went right on to sugar jars and bottles.
I have made lots and lots and lots and lots of mugs and it must be time to change the shape.
After 4 I was ready to move on and after 7 -I was done.
So I went right into sugar jars and those seemed to take me to a place where the mind did not want to jump around like a jumping bean.
Remember those thing when we were kids?
You could buy them in a package and then get them warm and they jumped around.
I am not sure if this is right but there was some worm in them or bug that when warmed moved- yuck!
I loved the smoking dog too... we had great, not politically correct, toys back then, crazy.
So after the sugar jars I moved over to bottles.
So I put in my lines while they are still on the wheel.
Then pick them up on my trusty bats and set aside.
And now here is a little know fact about me.
I use to embroider a lot.
In fact some of these things that I look at now I wonder where I found the time.
I had 2 kids, goats, rabbits and pigs plus I was mother earth so I had a big garden and .....you know the story on that one.
This jacket, size 2 ,was done for my son and then worn by our daughter, passed on to Mark's cousin and then returned to me about two years ago.
I have just picked up my needles again and I thought about this jacket.
Mark had stashed it in his closet and brought it out.
Darn- pretty cute and now I am adding to it for the GRAND daughter.
I am filling in that cloud that I never quite finished and planning to add some to the front.
Not to shabby and just think this was done oh- about 33 years ago- time flies when you don't know what you are doing.
