Watchin' Telly.

When I'm not working on through the evening in the workshop or out on my motorbike, taking the dogs for a walk etc, I don't like to just sit down and do nothing (it's not in my nature) so when watching the TV I'm usually making something, Last night it was Mice.When they are fired I put leather tails on them (unlike clay tails they don't brake too easily) I push a small hole in where the tail is to go and glue them when they come out of the kiln.
These are based on the little Wood Mice we get hanging around the clematis by the pottery. (Please note - Wood mice are a type of mouse found in Britain. i,e, There is the field, house, door and wood mouse currently living in the UK, wood mice have large ears and a long tail and are particularly cute wee fellows).

Would it be thought sexist or offensive to call you a smart arse Hannah? Och! well never mind, (that reminds me your seat should be ready soon by the way). PS, From some of the questions my customers have asked me I try to leave nothing to chance when it comes to explaining things.
