Day 81: 100 Pots in 100 Days


Well to start at the very beginning – I did not sleep last night because I got excited about decorating techniques. I kept my beloved awake telling him about the different techniques i might use. I imagine I  was very irritating. 

I tried to mend day died to make it a bit better and ended up ruining it. The picture of it now  is below in the gallery. You can watch it change.

One of my ideas last night was to make a protractor and use it to mark out where the tape should go and my bright idea was to use washiest tape. Watch this space on progress using it. I have two examples below. 

I put the handles on the mugs for day 79

Finally I threw this pot. 

The only news I have is of my sister and her campaign to make us more aware about the climate by going on hunger strike. 


Too tired to continue – need sleep!
