Mushrooms tomorrow and something ive been making.... all day!

I'll be listing mushrooms Monday evening 9pm UK time. It was meant to be Saturday evening but got stuck watching tv and being lazy, plus the libertines were playing at reading on tv and couldn't miss them! Love the Libertines and wish i could have actually been there for real rather than sitting with a cup of cocoa, a blankie and pillow, lol.
Will post pics tomorrow afternoon/early evening of the mushrooms. I've made green, yellow, orange and red so far.

I've got a great idea too for candles, and will hopefully be working on them later in the week when ive caught up with the mount everest washing and ironing piles.
They really will be ever so bloody! Well if they work, lol

Today i've been covering a glass vase. My Mum is coming to stay for a few days this Friday for my birthday. It's her own birthday tomorrow so her presents will be a few days late when she arrives.
The vase has taken me the entire day to cover with loads of clay balls. Thought i'd be finished around tea time, but no i was still rolling and sqaushing way past 10pm.
Just got to felt her a nuno scarf now, mount the wall hanging on a wood backing, and make a card.
I'll take better photos tomorrow in natural light.

My inspiration came from this ladies beautiful work.
Make sure you check her blog out! I love everything she makes, the textures and colours, and how she brings everything together.
I dont think i'll be making another though, because they really do take forever and a day!
