I had an appointment with my dentist (he of the Scrabble name etc) at 8.45. Bad enough to have to have such an early appointment, but even worse if you are having a tooth taken out!! Obviously there was no pain, but I could feel him wiggling the tooth from side to side to loosen it, then I could hear the crunch (inside my head) as it came out! However I was pleased to have it removed, as it was so badly broken that it was all sharp edges - the temporary repair had lasted about two days, then even more had broken off. The worst thing now is that I have to rinse my mouth out with warm salt water (yeuch!)
So, back to Saturday, and more preparations for the craft fair. Malcolm has now made 18 driftwood trees
I have made up little bags of shells, sea glass and pebbles, which can be scattered round the bottom of the trees to create a beach scene, after they have been used as Christmas trees
I've looked out some things which didn't sell at previous fairs - hopefully they will sell this time ...... photos, cards, and fabric covered notebooks
but these are my favourites, which I managed to do without sticking my fingers together with superglue! I had bought the tiny frames recently, and when we were in Berwick last week, we popped into the picture framer's to get some little bits of mounting board. The shells and bits of shells are from our beachcombing - I just thought they looked really interesting (and if they don't sell, I know exactly where I am going to hang them in the flat!)
at the end of the afternoon, I had a little play. When I made the pieced blocks for the Aunts' quilt, I had lots of lefteover bits from making the Flying Geese ....... yes, Meredithe, I know you are jumping up and down shouting that I should have used your no-waste method, but I knew what I would use the leftovers for
it's quick and easy to poke the bits of fabric into the polystyrene ball .......
........ to make a flower
on Saturday, when I was heading back into the house from the studio, I paused to take photos of the sunset. I have a setting on my camera for sunsets, which captures the wonderful colour in the sky
then I noticed the moon peeping out through the pink clouds. However, the sunset setting wouldn't pick up the moon, and the setting that would focus on the moon lost the pinks from the sky!
