Making a new dog bed fun and games

This week i have been attempting to make a more comfy dog bed for Baxter.  He’s been on painkillers for his sore leg and his current bed just doesn’t seem good enough for my little man in pain.

We had fun and games cutting the pattern out of wall paper and and my old mattres topper, took much longer than it should have…but i think he is going to like it after sneaking these photos of him helping out 🙂

Pottery club day….

Any one would think i didn’t want to go to pottery club today, so not true, but yet again i’m not there and i am getting frustrated with myself!

Once again i sorted through the tools i would be using the night before to save some time, spent forever trying to decide what i was going to make and how, i decided to make one of my “its all about the heart ladies” just in a little bit of a different way.

Do you think i could sleep ? So i got out the exercise ball then did some taichi breathing, then the enchanted garden guided meditation ate  bread and butter pudding all night. So eventually i got to sleep and eventually i woke up…late!

I did go to pottery though..yay, only i got down the road and had to come back to get what i forgot, realised it was rubbish day, went out again, got down the road  and had to go back for something else i had forgotten.

At this stage i am hot, bothered, irritated, class is nearly over, everyone would be going home, i’m exhausted, sit down and just can’t do it anymore.

So here i am…not at pottery club, rats!

Playing with birdfeeder designs

I changed my mind about the way i am going to hang the birdfeeders.


I tested out one and although it felt pretty stable with string, i played around with two of them today, leaving one with little steps on either side for the birds to perch on as they feed.


Here is the first design i started with, similar to my chook feeders but a bit more like a traditional birdfeeder with cover from the rain…i like this one too, just not really sure how to glaze this one.

Tai chi and bird feeders


I have had a good night tonight.  I feel all balanced after my tai chi class, where i sometimes remember the moves and sometimes know my left from my right, but not too sure if the bird feeders i made tonite will be balanced.  At least I am 🙂

Normally i would have made 3 points to hang up these birdfeeders but the shape of them didn’t suit it so these ones are a bit of an experiment, will have to see how to string them when they’re done, might have to wire them instead, or just re-design them.

This year i scattered seeds from last year, only a few of them have taken though, so next best thing this year is to make some out of clay.

I dried a few of last years seed heads to plant out again and at the same time i made a couple of bisque molds of the seed heads.  I  have been using them for the centre of my new flowers.
