New creations and new hopes.

 I have been making some bags recently which are to be worn
across the body to hang down by the hip.

I am forever looking for my glasses and sometimes my phone etc.
I now wear a bag like this whenever I go out.

No more do I have to search for my reading glasses, no more worrying about having to carry
my handbag when I go into a shop or am searching for treasures at a brocante.

All I need is in my little hip bag, all is safe and I don't have to go back, as I have in the past,
to ask in shops if someone has found my glasses.
All is with me and I can have both hands free to look at all I want to.

I really like these little bags and have found other friends who find them invaluable too.
All are made by hand and each one is different.

What do you think - do you like the idea ?

Tomorrow I go into hospital again for surgery so I won't be in touch for about a week.
There is no internet access but I'll really look forward to catching up with everyone
when I'm feeling better and am back home again.
Let's hope that this will be the last for me in hospital for a long time.

Creative ways on St Valentine's day.

I know its St Valentine's day.

I was thinking about some of the hearts I 
 have used in some of my pieces of art.

So here's a selection for you all.

I have to go out later into the storm that is raging around us here to get the shopping.

I think I'll treat myself to some flowers to brighten the day.

                            Happy St Valentine's day to all of you.

A new pot to add to the collection.

I have always loved pots and my collection has grown 
greatly over the years.

Some pots just speak to me.
Their form, colour and size just hits my heart
and they have to come home with me.

Yesterday I went to  a troc et puces at Pontivy and there was a pot just waiting for me.
I love it.
I love the shape, form and colour.
I loved also the price of 13€ !!

It has some errors of glaze but they just add to its charm.
Things that happen in firing can be magic and for me these marks are just that.

We've actually had sunshine today and so I was able to go outside to take the photographs.
Tortue decided she would come and sit with the pot so who am I to deny her.

In other news I have to go back into hospital again for abdominal surgery.
You will remember in my last post I wasn't feeling well.
After consultation with my surgeon it has been found I have yet another hernia.
So on the 18th February I have to go and be operated on.
I soon will look like a patchwork quilt !!
