SEVEN SEAS OF RYE...
Last week's whiskey theme may continue later ;-)
This blooming bug has lingered on and I have continued to feel quite grim but hopefully am getting there now. I've made a couple more things in the past couple of days so must be feeling a bit more springlike!
Things have been selling well down at the Harbour Lights Cafe, which is great. The tissue holders aren't so popular so I thought I'd try something else. I'd made myself a fabric keyring a while back and friends had admired it so I thought I'd bust some scraps!
I did have a little sort out first as it was a right tip!
Tiny bits of offcut fusible fleece acts as a thin layer of stuffing (it's too expensive to just bin the small bits so they've been kept stashed in a bag), odds and ends of ribbon and some split rings that were bought for this purpose. They look quite nice but I thought a bit of packaging was necessary to make them look a bit more worth the money!
It keeps them tidier in the baskets in the caff too. Hope they sell when the caff reopens in a couple of weeks' time.
I know that a few of you are enjoying seeing G's photos...well, he uses the JanCave quite a bit as there's good light in there. I'm called upon to help, not only with the staging but ideas too. The latest competition was Still Life and G thought he'd use that small bottle of whiskey I was given recently.
So, hunt out a bit of tartan, ask for a loan of our son's Letter Opener (a dagger!), the brooch I wore for Burn's Night, then there's all the lighting jiggery pokery...
Just experimenting with lighting slashes across the tartan but also highlighting the whisky tumbler...
Again, no idea if this will tickle the judge's fancy but we had fun setting it up!

Have a good week!
