i made these garlands for friends
last year and the year before
with air drying clay and string.

i thought they were soothing to look at.

today i was so amused - pleased even - to see almost the same thing in cotton for sale in this nice shop.

Hi eau de nil,

I am wondering if I can buy your garlands from clay. I would like to order one with grey thread. Is that possible? I am sure lots of your readers would love your stuff and I am very happy to be one of the friends you make things for.... xxxx
