To be honest I am artistically challenged at the best of times, but if I want to have a coloured kit for Mythago [they are optional], then I have to come up with a colour scheme and design. Way back in January I'd finally plumped for peacock hues as my inspiration and had bought a load of clothes from a jumble sale which I then cut up.

Determined as ever to keep to a modest budget and recycle I managed to find a black shirt in a charity shop which forms the basis for my tatters jacket and I have now passed it all over to my dancing chum Icebadger who has kindly agreed to make it up for me. She loves doing them, they take me for ever, I enjoy housesparkling, she doesn't so we're happily skill swapping. Everyone's a winner. She's made a start [these are photos which she has kindly allowed me to use] and is being ably assisted by her kittens. Cats, as ever, know about such things- indeed they are experts.

Prepare to be amazed for I too have pulled out the proverbial digit and after much initial twonking about [I pride myself upon my finely honed procrastination skills- it takes many years of thinking about doing things and then employing extraordinary distraction techniques to attain my level of displacement activity believe me!] I Have Got On With It as the following images attest. I still need to attach the cap onto the mask and get my mitts on some fabric to cover the back of it but the hardest bit is done. I deliberately kept to a simple design so that I would produce something I was happy with. I think it should look quite effective once it's worn with the rest of the kit. I am planning on wearing it around Christmas time as it's only for high days and holidays.

Just my cup of tea

 My only reason for showing this photo today is the utter gorgeousness of this tea cup and saucer. You can see it for yourself at the Wallac...
