green fingers
Mice are avid gardeners.  This one is, anyway.
Been dusting off the garden tools, me and Miss Mouse
and some of us moved to their summer house~
or just seem to be outside more.....

Update of new paintings this Sunday.
And pottery too, plates all sizes...
Hope you can take off your garden gloves and come visit.xx

Pinched Pottery

There's a very well done new Lark book on pinched pottery by Susan Halls.
That teapot on the cover is pinched by her, and there are other very well explained projects inside.
There's work in there by some one you know too...
Mugs, cups and bowls. Pinched one and all
Inspired by the Susan's book, I made my first pinched plates.
They were fast and fun.

I graduated from regular cereal bowls ........
to big cups with feet.
then legs! In the book is a large bowl with base that Susan will be teaching . I've heard her classes are sensational. This is a book I wish I had when starting out.  You can get it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble and its released on 1-7 of this week.
 When not pinching, I've been painting this fox. Very proud of the first turnip of the year from his vegetable garden.
Happy New Year! May you harvest many turnips from your gardens,

and loads of plums from your
