Moving on hastily..

Thank you for all your nice comments re the you know what.
I really shouldn't have blabbed so please lets forget it just now until something happens then I'll tell you.

By the time you are reading this I will be on my way to Knowle Green to a Craft Fair, more of a stall really .....well I should be but I'll probably be in the shower as I am renowned for my lateness. I try, I really do.

I just wanted to show you these which I will be taking with me.

I can do subtle.

Well, better than the beach towel anyway.

I must say I took these pictures with my husbands camera..its FANTASTIC and I want it. there was hardly any available light and I didn't use flash.

My husband and I have just had a conversation while watching the News.
It went exactly like this:

Me: Who's that? Bono?
He: No, its Colonel Gadaffi
Me: Has he had plastic surgery?
He: No he's got sunglasses on.

Should we be worried?

Your conversation sounds quite normal to me - perhaps I should be worried!! The 'subtle' motifs are delightful as ever - hope the forecast rain holds off for you this weekend. Don't worry about being late - you're an artist - but do keep trying to be on time!

Beena said...

I, for one, am glad you shared your experience in your previous post. I feel less alone, knowing I'm not the only one who these things happen to!!!
But I'd really like to see what you are calling a beach towel. I am thinking it may not be as bad as you think or say it is.We tend to be our own worst critics, you know.

Anyway, these pieces you are taking to the craft show are gorgeous! I hope you have a fun time there!

Love the subtles.
Worried? Probably, but don't let it get you down!!!

Deb said...

...yes, we have conversations like that in my household all the time. "You know, whatshizname with the hair" and he knows exactly which whathizname I mean. It's love.

And I love that you have found a way to express these endless little gems.

Annica said...

Have fun at the Crafts Fair! You new pieces are fab!

Robyn said...

Oooo, yes very divine pieces!!! (there is nothing wrong with the "beach towel" in my opinion)
Enjoy the Craft Fair

Doh!........... cringing because I worked for years in a picture framing shop, so should have known what mirror plates were... Hope by the time you read this you have had an amazing day and sold lots. x

Jenny said...

I love these subtle colours.

arlee said...

love the antique/vintage look these more discretely coloured pieces have---but i love them all no matter what colourway you use :}

Joei Rhode Island said...

Yummy colors...and the conversation...well, lets just speaks in strange ways

Love those broaches!
Hope the Craft Fair went well and the weather stayed fine for you.

sea-blue-sky & abstracts said...

Well, they're lovely, especially the greys and chocolatey browns. I had similarly perplexing thoughts about Gadaffi! BFN. Lesley

fiona d said...

your subtle pieces are luscious, hope you had a good craft fair

jeanette, mistress of longears said...

Well, if That conversation worries you, the Master and I should be shut away in a safe place!

cocoa and blankets said...

jennyflower said...

jude said...

Victoria said...

You are a hoot!
(And you do subtle wonderful justice!)

Caroline Inckle said...

Thanks Jackie
I am in the mist of packing chaos!! ahh!!!
I knew reading your blog would give me a much needed chuckle!

Linda said...

Subtle or loud - I love all your work Jackie!
These are very beautiful, I must say, especially the chocolate and turquoise....mmmmm.

Robin Olsen said...

The first pic makes me think what a wonderful wall hanging these would be just attached together where they touch. I got such a laugh out of you "Felt" brooch comment in the last post.

soggibottom said...

I would be worried!!!!!
As if..............

I know I have missed something again.... PAY MORE ATTENTION, was always on my report card.
Spends too much time looking out of the window was another.

Dot said...

I love all your brooches too Jackie (colorful or subtle).
Caught up with Elizabeth Armstrong over the weekend and I was wearing the gorgeous pink and purple brooch I bought from you recently. She recognised it as yours immediately!
Laughed at the conversation you had with your husband - you sound very in sync to me :)
Dot xx
P.S I thought it was brave of you to share what you did last post. Believe me - I have done much worse things!

Raggy said...

Just found your blog, love your work.

Jackie those brooches are my favourites that you've made. I'have an addiction to that teal/aquamarine colour. Are they on etsy yet? I'm off to peep.

Your conversation made me chuckle.

Whispers... hope you know what happens xxx

Jacky said...

You made me laugh out loud with your conversation with your husband...must be the sunglasses that confused you!!!
Your new brooches looks gorgeous and what sort of camera did you use of your husbands. Think I need one of those too!
