Hello again, and Happy Spring Day to all of you in the southern Hemisphere! In Cape Town, however, the weather is just reminding us that it can change...it's very windy, overcast and rather chilly with rain due tomorrow!(PS: it's raining now...we've decided it's the weather supporting Rhino Poaching Awareness month!)
I've had wonderful week tangle wise...my clay tiles came back from firing ...and they look stunning! I painted the whole tile with underglaze and then scratched out the tangles with a porcupine quill! I'm now going to do another set with exactly the same patterns, but the dark glaze on the white tile.
|The pots are pinch pots...and the first ones I've ever made!|

Challenge #37 - "Kiss my Grids" - is one of the quickest challenges I've done...I like the grid tangles and I used one of my favourite tangles with variations.

My hubby is due back from Amsterdam tomorrow morning, after being there a whole week on business, it will nice to have him home again. We've decided that next time he goes to Amsterdam, I'm going with him! Just imagine all those art galleries of famous people I can visit...
The eldest gannet is having surfing lessons on saturdays now is loving it! (See the collage below for proof - hee hee) Nippers has also started with winter training (for those who don't know, Nippers are U10, U12, U14 lifesavers in training), so our weekends are now being spent on the beach...roll on summer...and the sun!
Thanks to all the visitors I've had to my blog...I can't believe I've had 1000 visitors since I started! Thanks for all the wonderful comments you 've made, I'm enjoying meeting you all!
