whale purse

May has been rather fruitful for Rust Jewellery, and that means that I am now a very busy person. I sometimes feel like I am trying to keep my head above water, with work, and all the other stuff that you have to do on top of work. That's why I usually find myself in my shed, doing things that are totally pointless, casually ignoring that very long list of things I 'should' be doing.
So that leads me to present the latest article from the shed...a whale purse, of course! why not? naturally...


It's a bit rough as it was a kind of prototype.
I used the same pattern that I made for the whale mobile I made a few years ago (I always keep the patterns I make for the future, just in case ; )
I dream about having enough free time to start a little online shop for my handmade bits and bobs...one day...when I'm retired ; )

my first customer...


( I love the photo above, she'd actually just trodden in something disagreeable)

Our nipper is really into going to the shop, she loves the whole 'paying' bit, so I put a pound coin in there for her to save for her next shop trip. She usually likes to buy a mini milk, or a chocolate egg.
