Pottery Corner

Currently Pottery Corner (in Chorlton) is my friend Helen's favourite little corner of the world and both Helen and my friend Alex took me there recently for my birthday treat. Helen and I chose to paint cups and saucers (see above for my finished pottery). I'm not allowed to reveal what Alex painted as it is a suprise for someone!

If you get a chance to go there do! It is really relaxing and great for an alternative celebration for example, a quiet(ish) hen-do. Thanks for taking me girls!

Sketch Book Freedom

I love my new sketch book, it has a little message written along the spine, which reads: 'Writing, drawing. A notebook makes me feel free and happy.' My piano does too.
