Hello all! Firstly, apologies for my absence here and around Craftyblogland. I'm caught up in work schedules, but hope to be around more again soon. For now, I've just got a sneak peek for you to let you know I'm over at the Calico Craft Parts blog today with a creation that took me in the direction of my main phobia!
I have a shuddering fear of things that spend a long time underwater, especially if they shouldn't be there ... so that's shipwrecks (Titanic is probably my ultimate horror film), sunken villages, but also bottoms of boats (or even the thought of being in the water near a large boat - perhaps I was keelhauled in a previous life!) and, on a beach, I won't sit next to the part of a breakwater that's usually underwater when the tide is in.
So when the piece I'm sharing today started to look like a bit of flotsam or jetsam from a possible nautical salvage operation, it did slightly give me the heebie-jeebies. I had to keep reminding myself it was only paint!
I hope you'll be able to hop over and take a closer look, and I hope it won't have the same effect on any of you! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll be along to visit you all as soon as things settle down on the work front.
Have a great week!
