A great school trip and more pottery painting!

Hello there! How are you today? I am good - glad to be indoors with all this rain....the cat is out and about just now though - crazy girl. Probably mousing somewhere. But she is on lock out so can't bring them in! At least that is sorted now!

My school trip today was good - it was a science based event at the Lancaster Maritime museum and the kids had to work in teams to devise tsunami proof buildings and wind turbines and they also talked about earth structure, fossil fuels and other ideas. It was great to see them put ideas into practical use.

After that I went and picked up my latest piece of pottery painting.... my gecko teapot stand...

I am rather pleased with this little fella - I may have to do a teapot to match!!!!

I don't think I have blogged the last two makes either ... two coasters...
