There can't be too many women in the world who would be thrilled if their husband gave them something made from recycled rusty tin cans - I guess that's why textile artists are special!!
And check out the ingenious birthday tag - he has been making spatulas for christmas presents, and this is a bit of left over nicely polished wood that he - not sure of the right verb here - embossed? Anyway, took individual letters in cast metal and whacked them hard with a whacking tool. Clever, huh??
I haven't got time to put the fish out on fabric to rust before we have to leave for the airport - will do it when we get back on Saturday.
