So, we have the first Spring Market at Kirstenbosch coming up this Sunday 30th September. Hoo ha.
Been busy with these salt and pepper sets (hence the pun!) (sorry – but you know how fond I am of puns!) :-
And these are my first attempts at the tuna can pincushion, à la Doreen.
My efforts still need tweaking – the sides of the lilac one go up too high, and the blue-grey one was the wrong size can altogether!!! (Maybe it was salmon? oops). But I’m working on a raspberry one now, and it’s looking better. Please note – these guys are stuffed with dried lavender from Zimbabwe (courtesy of Doreen’s stash), which apparently prevents the pins and needles from rusting. I don’t know about that, but I do know that they smell wonderful.
Right, back to the
coal salt mine.
To be continued…
